Roberto Di Matteo's side face Jupp Heynckes' men in the Champions League decider. With plenty of attacking talent on show, Willie Duncan has two goalscorer tips for the game

Bayern Munich take on Chelsea at Allianz Arena in this Champions League final on Saturday evening and a hugely entertaining game is anticipated.

Both coaches have a fine array of attacking talent at their disposal and the game has all the ingredients of a potentially fantastic finale to this year’s competition.

There is no doubt that both sides have plenty of goalscoring potential and given Paddy Power’s excellent money-back special that, should Chelsea lift the Champions League trophy, Paddy Power will refund all losing first goalscorer, last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast singles on the match, there is definitely plenty of value available for punters. Who, though, will hit the net on Saturday?

Mario Gomez

The German striker has been in sensational form for his club this term, bagging 41 goals in 51 appearances for Bayern and, with Euro 2012 just around the corner, Gomez will be keen to impress.

He is a chunky 4/1 (5.0) with Paddy Power to score the opener on Saturday and that could represent excellent value should Bayern make a bright start.

Arjen Robben

The Dutch winger will feel he has a point to prove to the Stamford Bridge faithful having left Chelsea back in 2007. Robben has been among the goals for Bayern this term, scoring 19 goals in 35 appearances for Jupp Heynckes’ side and he will be eager to put his former club to the sword on Saturday. Robben is 5/1 (6.0) to net the opener here and must enter any punter’s calculations.

Didier Drogba

The big Ivorian is likely to be deployed in a lone-striker role on Saturday night and his performance may well be key to Roberto Di Matteo’s plans.

Drogba scored the decisive second goal in the FA Cup final at Wembley against Liverpool and looks fairly priced at 15/2 (8.50) with Paddy Power to score first while the 5/2 (3.50) for Drogba to net at any time looks to be even better value.

Juan Mata

Mata has impressed during his season at Stamford Bridge and has often been the provider for Chelsea this term. However, the Spaniard has also chipped in with some crucial goals and he is chalked up at a chunky 10/1 (11.0) to break the deadlock in Munich.
