Treble beckons for the Reds
Teddy Sheringham celebrates his opening goal at Wembley
Manchester United are now 7-4 on with the bookmakers to become the first English side to win an incredible treble.
William Hill acted within seconds of United's FA Cup Final victory over Newcastle, slashing the Red Devils' odds from 5-4 to 4-7.
Hills say bookies stand to lose about £10m if United pull off the treble.
But a minute later they were ahead. United boss Alex Ferguson had gambled by replacing Keane, a midfielder, with a striker and it paid off handsomely.
Scholes made it safe
Substitute Teddy Sheringham played a neat one-two with Paul Scholes and finished by tucking it under the body of Steve Harper.
Having won the English Premiership title the previous weekend United have now won the double three times in six years.
Now they go for the big one on Wednesday in Barcelona.
Liverpool came closest in 1977 but ironically on that occasion they were pipped by United, who beat them at Wembley.
Butt likley starter
There was no doubt that Ferguson had his mind on the Nou Camp match on cup final day on Saturday.
Apart from Keane, who is already suspended from the European Cup Final, United came through the game without any serious injury worries.
Butb United will be without Scholes, who is also suspended.
Borussia went on to beat Juventus in the final.
Drew in group stages
Ferguson says of Hitzfeld: "He's a fantastic manager and also a very, very good man, a real gentleman and I admire him greatly.
"He is very focused as a manager and a bit like myself in that he gets agitated at times. Yet off the field he is very calm and controlled."
United and Bayern met in the group stages when they drew 2-2 in the Olympic Stadium before a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.
Ferguson said: "I thought in the game in Munich that we were the better team.
"I thought the game at Old Trafford was very, very even with Bayern showing more experience than us for a good part of the match.
"Hopefully we have improved enough to make a difference."
Call for good game
Butt could be given the task of restricting Bayern playmaker Stefan Effenberg.
Ferguson says: "I think Bayern's players of influence are Matthaus and Effenberg and I think they are who we need to concentrate on.
"There's a history of European Cup Finals being 1-0 or settled on penalty kicks over the last decade and a half.
"I hope Manchester United and Bayern will elevate themselves above that to produce a good game of football."
