Saturday’s game in Porto is undoubtedly the biggest game in Manchester City’s history, and manager Pep Guardiola will be hoping his players don’t freeze on the big occasion.
They face a Chelsea side who have beaten them in their last two encounters, but Thomas Tuchel’s men are coming into the Champions League final off the back of two defeats in their last three matches.
In terms of team news, Guardiola has a completely fit squad to choose from, with the likes of Raheem Sterling, Kyle Walker and Sergio Aguero having all returned for the 5-0 win over Everton last weekend.
Chelsea have two injury concerns. N’Golo Kante is a slight doubt with a hamstring injury but the Frenchman is said to be winning his fitness battle. There is less certainty about Edouard Mendy who injured his ribs when clashing with the goal post in the 2-1 loss to Aston Villa on Sunday.
At the bookmakers, City are the favourites with William Hill currently pricing them at 10/11 odds-on to lift their first Champions League trophy. A draw after 90 minutes is 5/2 with Betway while a victory for Chelsea is 7/2 at BetVictor.
Predicted Score – 1-0 to City
