|14/1||Dortmund are 14/1 with BetVictor to win the final on penalties
"Dortmund are in a similar position to the one we experienced with Liverpool on this day exactly eight years ago.
Nobody gave us a chance of beating AC Milan in Istanbul, so that meant we could enjoy the occasion. Winning the biggest trophy in club football went beyond our wildest dreams.
"Bayern, in contrast, will in some ways be dreading this match as the pressure on them is immense.
"Bayern Munich are THE club in Germany and to lose the prize they crave most to a team from their own country would be a savage blow to their esteem."
