With Atletico Madrid hosting on Wednesday, oddsmakers are expecting an extremely close contest, as evidenced by these odds:

Atletico Madrid, 2.80
Draw, 3.00
Bayern Munich, 2.70

That is about as close to a coin flip as you are going to get.

Bayern Munich, which is the current favourite to win Champions League, is listed at 1.44 to qualify for the finals:

Bayern Munich, 1.44
Atletico Madrid, 2.62

Atletico Madrid, however, is brimming with confidence at the moment, as they dispatched of Barcelona in the quarter-finals and now have a legitimate chance of winning both La Liga and Champions League.

Bayern Munich, on the other hand, is looking to rebound following a disappointing run in Champions League last year. They are going to have their hands full, however, with a spirited Atletico Madrid squad that is playing some exceptional football.
