Wembley hosts the biggest game in European football on Saturday, Hugh Wilson is backing the Bundesliga champions to come out on top and has an 11/4 value bet

German giants Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund meet in London on Saturday in the Champions League Final.

The two sides have been outstanding in this year's competition, thoroughly deserving their place in the final. Although Bayern ran away with the Bundesliga title, finishing ahead of Dortmund by 25 points, this match is expected to be a close encounter with both teams recording impressive victories in the semi finals.

Bayern come into this match after destroying Barcelona over two legs. Jupp Heynckes men all but sealed their place in the final after the first leg, winning 4-0 at the Allianz Arena.

Most people expected the Bavarians to sit back in the second leg, but Bayern had other plans, winning 3-0 to win 7-0 on aggregate. Heynckes side have only lost twice in this year's campaign, to Arsenal and BATE Borisov. Paddy Power price them at 4/5 (1.80) to win in 90 minutes.

Borussia Dortmund have surprised many in the seasons competition. Jurgen Klopp has put together a fantastic side who were not handed a friendly draw in the group stages, having to overcome Ajax, Manchester City and Real Madrid to qualify for the knockout stages.

They did this with flying colours and went on to beat Shakhtar Donetsk and Malaga in the later stages of the competition, before a first leg thrashing of Real Madrid in the semi final saw them qualify for the final.

Paddy Power price them at 7/2 (4.50) which sees them start as heavy underdogs to win the match. The same firm price the draw at 13/5 (3.60).

The outright result for Bayern to win at 4/5 (1.80) seems like a fantastic price. The Bundesliga Champions have won 50 of their 58 total games this season, including beating Dortmund in two of their four meetings this term. Heynckes men will be eager to wipe away the memory of last years final, where they lost to Chelsea on penalties after dominating the match.

For those looking for more value, both teams to score in the first half at 11/4 (3.75) with Paddy Power seems too good to ignore. Both sides will be looking to draw first blood and come out of the traps with intent.

Dortmund have managed to score in the first half in four of their last six Champions League matches, with this bet paying out in three of them.

With Munich scoring in the first half in four of their last seven Champions League matches, this bet is tough to ignore. Had you backed this when the two sides met at the start of the month, then this bet would also have paid out.

If Robert Lewandowski scores the last goal in this match, Paddy Power will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score & Scorecast singles on the match
