Aman Arora: Bayern 3-1 Borussia Dortmund. A strong Bayern side, experienced from their past defeats to be in better shape and in a mood to make sure they win this by any way. The style wont matter and I expect thm to fire on all cylinders this time beating Dortmund in a deserved manner.

Surya Solanki: Dortmund 2-1 Bayern. I feel Klopp's men might just be able to nick this one. The aura around this squad is just special.

Brendon Netto: 2-2 at FT. Dortmund to win 3-2 AET. I think the pressure on Bayern to win is immense while Dortmund might just be able to express themselves better. Klopp will have his troops really geared up for this one and I fancy they'll nick a few goals on the counter when Bayern try to force a win.

Rishabh  Ghai: It's too tight to call and it might go to the penalties. 1-1 over 120 minutes and bayern to win in penalties. Just because they have more steady mentally and their desire to win after failing twice will be more

It's time for the final predictions now! Who will win and why so?

Rishabh  Ghai: It's really a big moment for him. He has learnt from his mistakes and has really performed well this season. He has become more of a team player. He might be nervous but he will do well today

23:41 IST

Aman Arora: He has definitely let himself down in the big games but having performed well against teams like Barcelona and Juventus, he will have a certain level of confidence about himself which might just be crucial from him tonight. Whether he remains a choker will only be seen during the 90 minutes.

Harsh Shah: I see him learning from his errors if he decides to pass in the final third. At this big a stage, he needs to make the right decision at the opportune moment. His decision making will have to be spot on. Definitely a big personal moment for Robben. He might not get many more chances at this level.

How big a moment will the tie be for Robben. We have seen him perform poorly when it matters - WC final, CL finals on two occasions, Euro 2012. He has been in top form lately. Do you see him having learnt from his errors or is he still a choker/nervous?

23:37 IST

Shikharr Chandra: I'll go with Neuer. He has had the experience over the last few seasons stopping the likes of Juan Mata, Kaka and Ronaldo. As Ashley Cole said while he was stepping up to take a penalty last season that Neuer is a very intimidating character.

23:36 IST

25/05/13

Aman Arora: Bayern should have an edge in the penalty shoot out as in Neuer they have one of the best. The Dortmund keeper was no doubt very impressive against Madird but in comparison to an in form Neuer, the Bayern custodian is well ahead.

23:35 IST

Brendon Netto: I fancy Dortmund to come out on top in a penalty shoot-out. Weidenfeller is top notch and so is Neuer but I get the feeling the Dortmund keeper might be the more composed as would his teammates.

23:34 IST

25/05/13

Should the game go to penalties, whom would back to come out on top - Neuer or Weidenfeller? Mind you, the Dortmund goalkeeper was top notch against Real Madrid

Mrunal Nakashe: Not quiet. But yes, another defeat will be devestating psychologicallly as much as anything. hey have done incredebly well to keep coing back to finals but they must cross the line this time. Every defeat will only make the mental barrier bigger. With uardiola they can start again, albeit with solid foundations. So, this marks the end of the Hyenckes era and have to do it tonight or else the critics will be back.

23:30 IST

25/05/13

Harsh Shah: Whatever tonight's result is, there is no doubt over the fact that Bayern along with the German national side have arguably taken over the mantle of 'chokers' from the Spain of old. If Dortmund win tonight, it will be a hammer blow for Bayern, more of a hurtful feeling than the ones they endured against Chelsea and Inter Milan.

23:29 IST

25/05/13

Would Bayern Munich be football's South Africa (cricket - talented side but choke at crucial moments) if they fail to win the Champions League title tonight? It will be losing their 3rd straight final in 4 years

23:28 IST

25/05/13

Surya Solanki: I agree with the popular opinion. As impressive as Barcelona's style is, they are way too rigid now. They never want to change their play. Bayern on the other hand, can switch between different styles, which is the reason the Bavarians are in the final tonight. However, one obviously can't ignore the fact that Barca's tiki-taka in the Guardiola-era was magnificent.

Will he be having the last laugh at the end of tonights game?

Harsh Shah: Keeping the one-dimensional tag aside, if you are one for the artistic and patient showcasing of football, Barcelona definitely take the cake. But if you like ruthlessness and steely commitment to go with it, Bayern edge the challenge. In my opinion, keeping the past two seasons in the spotlight, Bayern boast of the more 'watchable' style of football. They have all bases covered unlike Barca and still boast of the panache and flair that the Catalans do.
