Manchester City vs Inter Champions League Final predictions

Manchester City vs Inter | Champions League Final (10.06.2023, 21:00)

Manchester City will face Inter in the highly anticipated Champions League final in Istanbul, under the guidance of Polish referee Marciniak. The English team is determined to secure their first-ever historic Champions League title, aiming to complete an unforgettable treble this season. They enter the final as the clear favorites, while Inzaghi’s Inter dreams of replicating Mourinho’s remarkable feat against Bayern Munich in their previous victorious final.

Manchester City’s journey to Istanbul has been impressive, having triumphed over Arsenal in the Premier League and displaying superiority over United in the FA Cup final. Now, their sights are set on clinching the treble. On the other hand, Inzaghi’s Inter, despite falling short in the Serie A title race, have shown their mettle by securing the Super Cup against Milan and winning the Coppa Italia in a thrilling final against Fiorentina.

In their last league match against Torino, the Nerazzurri secured a 1-0 victory with a goal from Brozovic, solidifying their third-place standing without exerting excessive effort. As they prepare for the final in Istanbul, they remain committed to their preferred 3-5-2 formation, with Lautaro leading the attack. The competition between Lukaku and Dzeko for the second striking position remains undecided. Lukaku has been in great form, while Dzeko has proven himself in crucial matches. In terms of defense, Skriniar has recovered from injury, but Inzaghi may rely on Darmian, Acerbi, and Bastoni. Mkhitaryan’s fitness is a concern, as he is currently Brozovic’s preferred partner in the midfield, alongside Dumfries, Barella, Calhanoglu, and Dimarco.

Pep Guardiola, on the other hand, faces relatively few uncertainties in his team selection. Ederson is set to guard the goal, with Walker likely to return to the defense (alternatively, Aké could step in) alongside Rúben Dias and Akanji. Stones and Rodri are expected to provide stability in front of the defense, while Bernardo Silva, De Bruyne, Gündoğan, and Grealish offer strength and creativity in support of the center-forward, Haaland.

  • The two teams have each secured a victory in their previous two encounters.
  • Guardiola’s Manchester City has only managed one win in their last three matches.
  • Inter, on the other hand, has achieved five victories in their last six games.
