Manchester City and Chelsea meet tonight in an all English Champions League final in Porto. Manchester City are looking to complete a treble after already lifting the Premier League tittle and Carabao Cup this season, while Chelsea could end a dramatic campaign at a high.
Machester City welcome Chelsea to the Estadio Do Dragao, having an excellent form in the past six games winning four and losing two. Chelsea, on the other hand, finished 4th in the league standings, 19 points behind newly crowed champions City, having lost their last match to Aston Villa, 2-1. Their form, however has been poor in the last matches having lost three games, winning two in the process. The Blues have already beaten City twice this year and hope to do the same in the final.
Pep Guardiola's men have enjoyed an unbeaten Champions League campaign up to now, recording 11 wins and just one draw along the way. Finishing top of group C on 16 points, the Citizens overcome Borussia Monchengladbach in the round of 16, before seeing off Dortmund in the quarter finals. In the semi finals, City produced hugely impressive displays to crush Paris Saint Germain 4-1 over two legs.N'Golo Kante is going to be key, as he is fit to start, this could tip the game in Chelsea's favour. Prediction, I think it is going to extra time and Chelsea could make it three wins out of three against City.
