Chivas USA predict Champions League winner

Four chose Inter, while three chose Munich, to come out on top

 

Saturday evening will see Madrid’s Santiago Bernabéu
Stadium play host to Bayern Munich as they square off against Inter
Milan in the final of the 2010 UEFA Champions League.

By all
accounts, Italian League champion Inter is favored to win the trophy
over its German counterpart, especially given that Bayern will be
without suspended playmaker Franck Ribéry.

With the
much-anticipated match only hours away, MLSsoccer.com decided to check
in with the players of Chivas USA to see who they thought would come out
on top.

Striker Maykel Galindo:

“I’m split, but I
think Bayern Munich might pull it off with a 1-0 victory.”

Striker
Justin Braun:

“Maicon will bag the Inter’s winning goal to
give his side a 2-1 victory.”

Midfielder Ben Zemanski:

“I’ll
go with a 2-0 win for Inter. The Nerazzurri look pretty organized and
it will be tough for Bayern to win without Ribéry.”

Midfielder
Gerson Mayen:

“Arjen Robben will score two goals to give
Bayern a surprising 2-1 victory. Samuel Eto’o will score Inter’s only
goal.”

Defender Ante Jazic, who played in the Champions League for 
Austrian side Rapid Vienna:

“Inter will win 2-1 in regulation,
with Diego Milito scoring the winning goal to give his side a treble.”

Defender
Carlos Borja:

“With lethal goal-scorers Milito and Eto’o, it
has to be Inter at 2-0, especially since they beat Barcelona, the best
team in the world.”

Chivas USA communications manager David
Lindholm:

“Robben will lead Bayern Munich to a 3-1 victory.
Ribéry is out, but The Reds will be alright without him.”

The
Champions League final kicks off at 2:45 pm ET.
