Manchester City and Chelsea star in the English grand final of the UEFA Champions League. For the second time in the last three editions, two sets of the Premier League they star in the final of the maximum continental competition at club level.
The City is the big favorite to lift your first European Cup, after having already conquered the Premier League and the Carabao Cup this season. The team of Pep Guardiola is right now a team that works like a clock, where the quality of Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden, Gundogan, Rodri, Cancelo or Bernado Silva gives many variants and possibilities to the citizen team.
On the way to Mancheser City they have stayed the Borussia Mönchengladbach in the round of 16, the Borussia Dortmund in the quarterfinals and the Paris saint germain in the semifinals. It is the first UEFA Champions League final throughout the history of the citizen team, which dominates English football with three titles of the Premier League in the last four seasons and five in the last decade.
The Chelsea by Tomas Tuchel, for his part, has led a clearly upward path since the arrival of the German coach to the team with the season started. With Frank Lampard It seemed like a team adrift, but it has shown the great level it exhibits in its squad, which, like Manchester City it has a great investment behind it.
They have finished in fourth position of the Premier League, so they have their place secured for the next edition of the maximum continental competition at club level. In addition, it reached the Chelsea the FA Cup final (defeated the Manchester City in the semifinals), where he lost to Leicester city 1-0, thanks to a great goal from Yuri tielemans.
It seems that Edouard mendy, goalkeeper of the Chelsea, will not be able to play the final, since he was injured on the last day of the Premier League before him Aston Villaas it hit the post. Therefore, everything seems to indicate that it will play Kepa Arrizabalaga will be the starting goalkeeper.
Now the blues seek their second UEFA Champions League title, after beating the Atlético de Madrid in the round of 16, at Port in the quarterfinals and at Real Madrid in the semifinals. Among these three qualifiers, he has only conceded two goals (one against Port and another against him Real Madrid), which shows the strength of the team. Of course, the lack of a goal in the team is palpable, especially by a Timo Werner that in the scorer section he has fallen short.
