With a fifth Premier League title in six seasons already in the bag and the FA Cup claimed with victory over Manchester United at Wembley last weekend, Man City are now looking to wrap up an incredible treble by winning Europe’s biggest club competition for the first time.
It is the one trophy that still eludes Pep Guardiola’s dominant team, who were edged out by Chelsea on their only previous final appearance in Porto two years ago.
Inter head into tonight’s game with almost no expectations given City’s fearsome form, which could well play in their favour as they look to win the European Cup for a fourth time having already lifted the Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana trophies under cup specialist Simone Inzaghi this term.
The match will take place at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, scene of Liverpool’s famous comeback against AC Milan in 2005.
TV channel: In the UK, tonight’s game will be televised live on BT Sport 1 and Ultimate, with coverage beginning at 6.30pm.
Live stream: BT have announced that the match will also be made available to watch for free via their website, app and YouTube channel.
Man City XI: Ederson, Akanji, Stones, Dias, Ake, Rodri, Gundogan, De Bruyne, Bernardo, Grealish, Haaland
Subs: Ortega Moreno, Carson, Walker, Phillips, Laporte, Alvarez, Gomez, Mahrez, Perrone, Foden, Palmer, Lewis
Inter Milan XI: Onana; Darmian, Acerbi, Bastoni; Dumfries, Barella, Brozovic, Calhanoglu, Dimarco; Dzeko, Martinez
Subs: Handanovic, Cordaz, Gagliardini, De Vrij, Gosens, Correa, Bellanova, Asllani, Mkhitaryan, D’Ambrosio, Skriniar, Lukaku
City will surely never have a better chance of winning the Champions League, and in turn a famous treble. That is not to say that Inter are pushovers, but are the weakest of the three teams that have stood in City’s way for their tilt at history, the others being Premier League runners-up Arsenal and FA Cup finalists Manchester United.
Man City to win,2-0.
Remarkably, tonight’s final is the first-ever competitive meeting between these two teams.
