In addition to offering industry-leading odds of 17/20 on a Bayern Munich win in normal time, bwin are giving away a free £50 bet for correctly guessing the time of the first goal in the Champions League final.

With the world's biggest club game just days away, bwin is offering punters the chance to win a completely free £50 bet.

Despite most pundits predicting a Real Madrid v Barcelona final when the semi-final line-up was revealed, it is English side Chelsea who travel to Germany to take on Bayern Munich in their own back yard for Saturday's Champions League showpiece. Should they follow up their semi-final success over holders Barca and lift the trophy, the Blues will become the first London side to win Europe's premier club football competition.

Bayern, who knocked out nine-times winners Real Madrid in the last four, are bidding for their fifth European title at the highest level and in the lead-up to the game, bwin is offering football betting fans the chance to win a £50 free bet which comes with no strings attached.

To be in with a chance of claiming bwin's prize, customers simply have to guess the time of the first goal scored during normal time in the 2011-12 Champions League final. The person who predicts the correct time (or, if nobody gets it exactly right - the entrant who goes closest) will have a £50 free bet credited to their account.

To be in with a chance of winning, customers just need to send their name, bwin username and the exact minute they think the first goal will be scored in the Champions League final to and there is no deposit required. Non-members can register here.

If more than one person guesses the correct or closest time, then all successful entries will be put into a hat. There will be up to three winners chosen at random and each of those people will have their account credited with a £50 free bet.

Bayern odds of 17/20 on a win in normal time are very attractive - a price which may be seized on by Tottenham fans hoping the German team prevails, as a Bayern victory would ensure Spurs qualify for next season's Champions League.

As a Chelsea success would mean Tottenham, who clinched the Premier League's final Champions League qualification spot by virtue of a fourth-place finish, would have to give up their slot so that the English holders could defend the trophy.

Those predicting a tight game will be interested to hear that bwin's offer of 3/1 on a draw after normal time is the leading bookies' price. Chelsea to make history and win for the first time, without the need for extra time or penalties, is available at 27/10.
