Chelsea is regarded around an 18/5 underdog, while the draw after 90 minutes is paying around 12/5.

One interesting wager being offered by William Hill is on who will lift the Champions League trophy should Chelsea Win. Frank Lampard is 4/5, John Terry, 11/8, while Roberto Di Matteo and a few of his players are also in the running.
