Goal readers predict Dortmund will win Champions League

Over half of the votes were in favour of BVB to triumph over Bayern in Saturday's final at Wembley, while confidence in the Bavarians' penalty-taking abilities is also low

readers have voted Borussia Dortmund as marginal favourites over Bayern Munich to win the Champions League final, with 58.6 per cent backing BVB to triumph on Saturday at Wembley.

Despite heading into tonight's game as German champions only 41.4% of you believes the Bavarians will finally get their hands on Europe's premier club trophy.

As of 13.00 BST on Saturday, thousands of votes were cast on with just over half of you voting in favour of the Schwarzgelben - most of which believe Jurgen Klopp's men will win within 90 minutes.

They may be the bookies' favourite but the majority of you don't believe that Bayern can secure victory before extra time, ensuring they do not make it three Champions League final losses in four seasons.

Whereas the vote remained relatively close in open play, readers are far less confident in Bayern if the game were to go into a penalty shoot-out, possibly due to Chelsea's conquering of the Bavarians in the format 12 months ago. Indeed, just over 77 per cent of readers believe that BVB will beat Jupp Heynckes' side in the event of a spot-kick showdown.
