On Sunday at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Manchester City and Inter Milan will play in the UEFA Champions League final as they attempt to win an unprecedented treble.
The Pep Guardiola-led team, which has already won the Premier League and FA Cup, will be seeking to complete a trifecta. City will rely heavily on Erling Haaland in particular.
With 36 goals in 35 games, the former Dortmund striker has emerged as his team’s key player and won the Premier League Golden Boot.
He has scored 12 goals in 10 games this season, which leads the UCL. Inter finished third in Serie A and missed out on the championship, although they did win the Coppa Italia.
The Serie A team has a solid backline and will assault City on the counter. The attack partnership of Inter’s Lautaro Martinez and Edin Dzeko must be avoided by the City backline.
Full time: Manchester City 1-0 Inter
City is the best! The game’s lone goal was scored by Rodri, and Ederson made two incredible stops at the very end to save Inter from tying the score. The Brazilian had earlier in the evening appeared off his game, but really delivered when it counted.

Manchester City has won the Champions League, completing a treble that also includes the league, FA Cup, and European Cup. They faced tough competition in the form of Inter, but won thanks to Rodri’s goal in the second half. It was appropriate that it was the most Pep-era Manchester City goal you have ever seen.

Rodri scores opens the scoring for City!
They haven’t been at their best. Far from it infact. But that, was a brilliant finish. Akanji starts the move by releasing Silva in the inside-right channel and he cuts the ball back into the middle. It takes a deflection off Darmian, which prompts a penalty appeal. But, Rodri pounces on the loose ball and curls his effort past two men on the line into the back of the net.
