On Saturday, the Ataturk Stadium in Istanbul will host the Champions League final between Manchester City and Inter Milan. The match will take place on June 10.


Manchester City have been amazing this season and no club has been able to challenge a team under Josep Guardiola. The club from England already has two titles this season, first becoming the champion of England, ahead of Arsenal at the end of the season, and then beating Manchester United 2-1 in the FA Cup final.

In the Champions League, Manchester City had a difficult path, because after winning on aggregate in the 1/8 stage over RB Leipzig (1:1, 7:0), the best clubs in Europe opposed the team.

First, in the quarter-finals, the “citizens” beat Bayern Munich with a score (1:1, 3:0), then in the semi-finals there were two difficult meetings with Real Madrid (1:1, 4:0), but Man City coped with his task and reached the final of the main European tournament.

Inter Milan, meanwhile, have surprisingly managed to make a big comeback this season as few predicted the club would reach the 2022/23 Champions League final.

The team led by Simone Inzaghi failed to challenge for the top spot in Serie A, finishing third behind Lazio and Napoli. But in the Coppa Italia, the Nerazzurri managed to succeed, beating Fiorentina 2-1 in the final, and this is the club’s only trophy this season so far.

In the Champions League, Inter first cleared the group stage by finishing second, knocking Barcelona out of the competition. In the 1/8 stage of the playoffs, the club from Italy beat FC Porto (1:0, 0:0).

Then, in the quarterfinals, Inter defeated another Portuguese club, Benfica, on aggregate (2:0, 3:3), and in the semifinals managed to defeat AC Milan, winning in two matches (2:0, 1:0 ), and now the club has every chance to beat the upcoming opponent.

Head to Head

Manchester City and Inter are level in head-to-head terms and have won one game each of the two matches that have been played. The last meeting of the two teams took place in 2011 as part of a friendly game and ended with the victory of Manchester City with a score (3-0).

Prediction

Х1 1,50Х 4,70Х2 6.60

Manchester City may be the best team in world football right now, and Josep Guardiola hasn’t won a Champions League trophy in 12 years.

Inter did well in the final and the team has a very difficult task to succeed, as it is very difficult to surprise the upcoming opponent this season.

Prediction for this match: Total over 3 goals.

We believe that the English team looks like a clear favorite to win, and in the latter they are able to win the long-awaited title, but the Nerazzurri will undoubtedly fight.

Prediction for this match: Handicap Manchester City (-2).
