10 June 2023 - 12:14 am


City are preparing to take on Inter Milan in Istanbul in their second Champions League final. This came two years after they lost the final in Porto to fellow England compatriots Chelsea. The Celeste have already won the FA Cup and the Premier League; now they will look to cap off a phenomenal season with the Champions League trophy and thus win the Treble this season.

Guardiola is likely to opt for the 3-2-4-1 formation which has worked so well for his side and is expected to name a strong starting XI for this European final. Erling Haaland will lead at the top of his own, while Jack Grealish and Bernardo Silva provide support from wide and Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin De Bruyne step up the attack.
