This final is the first meeting between Manchester City and Inter Milan in the Champions League. The Mancunians present themselves as favorites tonight against the Milanese. The stakes are high for the Skyblues who have the possibility of winning their first Champions League and finally turning the page on their painful defeat in the final two years ago against Chelsea in Porto. The Cityzens, freshly crowned champion of England and winners of the FA Cup against rival Manchester United on Saturday June 3, are only one victory away from achieving an exceptional hat-trick this season.
It’s hard to imagine the Cityzens missing out on their first Champions League a second time, they’ve been so impressive for several months. Pep Guardiola’s players arrive in the final having lost no match and display the best attack and the best defense in the competition. Their confidence is at an all-time high after knocking out Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals and Real Madrid in the semis.
Inter are less impressive this year than their evening opponents but still proved solid to reach the final. The Nerazzurri largely dominated AC Milan, their sworn enemy, in the semi-finals without conceding a single goal. They lost only twice, in the group stage, against Bayern Munich. The Interistes have won four of their six matches in the knockout stage and finished five matches without conceding a goal. Inter Milan are also regulars in the Champions League. The Lombard club have won the competition three times, the last time in 2010. Manchester City are the big favorites for this final but Inter also have a card to play.
The Manchester City – Inter Milan match takes place this Saturday, June 10 from 9 p.m., live on the channels TF1, Canal +, et beIN Sports. A live commentary will also be offered on our site on June 10 to follow the final.
