|Less than a week after Chelsea failed to snatch Premier League title from Manchester United, the Blues and the Red Devils will take to the pitch in Moscow to decide who will be crowned the champions of Europe.|
Man U managed to keep their slim lead – built only on goal difference – over their London rivals by beating Wigan 2-0 on Sunday, securing the title. Now, after winning their 17th league title, football fans turn their eyes to Russia, where the two English giants will collide again after fighting their way to the final.
“We are bouncing into that final now,' Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson said. 'If we'd lost the title it would have been different.”
The best odds of Man U doing the double over Chelsea and winning in Europe come in at 6/4 at a variety of bookmakers. A Chelsea victory is at 9/4 with odds drifting at the time of going to press.
