Football was in focus at a German wildlife park on Wednesday (May 22) as a young elephant called Nelly put in her prediction for the Champions League final.
 
German teams Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund will battle it out at London's Wembley stadium on Saturday (May 25) for the top prize in European football.
 
Nelly, who already became famous for her predictions for the German national team during last year's European Championship, predicted a Bayern win by kicking the ball into the Dortmund goal.
 
[Fabrizio Sepe, Serengeti-Park Owner]:
"It is clearly a win for Bayern, the ball was shot into the Dortmund goal which means for us 1-0 for Bayern. Nelly is predicting a win for Bayern."
 
Bayern will be chasing the triple this year, having already won the German Bundesliga and also guaranteed a place in the German Cup final on June 1.
 
Dortmund however will be looking to win their first Champions League trophy since 1997 with four-time European champions Bayern aiming to make it five in their third final appearance in four seasons.
