thumbnail Hello,

JD recommended the Bavarians at generous odds for the Champions League in September and he is hoping that Jupp Heynckes's side can end their European campaign on a high

The final of the Champions League takes place on Saturday and we are in for a real treat as Bayern Munich face their German rivals, Borussia Dortmund, in a mouthwatering encounter at Wembley. 

The Bundesliga champions are 3/4 (1.75) to win in 90 minutes with Bet365 with the draw at 3/1 (4.0) and a Dortmund victory in 90 minutes priced at 15/4 (4.80).  

I am hoping that my outright selection advised in September, Bayern Munich to lift the trophy at 16/1 (17.0) wins. Bet365 are offering a free in-play bet on the match and it is something of which you should take advantage.

Dealing with Scandinavia in the football markets can be tricky but I have found it profitable over the years. Having local contacts is important and I have managed to build up a few through my work. Local knowledge is a vital component in beating the bookmakers.  

Many bookmakers simply will not have the depth of knowledge of lesser-known leagues and you can gain an edge on them by simply knowing more. The Swedish Allsvenskan takes place right up until November and is one of the leagues where you can get an advantage.

Elfsborg are the current champions of Sweden and it is one of the most competitive leagues around. If you have not got the time to look into team news and preview matches, goals should be your outlet.

It only takes  a short time to examine teams' capacity to score goals and statistics and previous form can prove substantial enough to form an opinion in some cases. Many bettors use the goal markets for leagues with which they are not so familiar and it can pay dividends.

Looking ahead, there are some interesting prices in La Liga. Many teams are priced up on a 'needs' basis and you can obtain value in opposing them. Malaga are 7/5 (2.40) to overcome relegation-threatened Deportivo La Coruna and looks a solid option.

It is Manuel Pellegrini's last home match in charge and their home form has been reasonably good, winning nine from 18. Real Madrid are 13/8 (2.63) to beat Real Sociedad away from home. We have to go back to 2004 for the last home victory for Sociedad over Real Madrid and Jose Mourinho's side look capable of a win.
