What to Expect From Manchester City in the Champions League Final

Etihad Stadium Man City EPL

Manchester City fans are likely anxious because the Champions League Final is rather near. With less than two weeks until kickoff, some fans cannot wait to see their favourite players on the pitch, while others are reliving that horrible loss from Chelsea two seasons ago.

The situation is pretty similar. Man City are the favorites to win the Champions League and they are playing against a team whose primary tactic will be to defend.

This begs the question: What should you expect from Guardiola and Man City as they look to become the best club in Europe? Betting sites like in2bet have their own takes.

Here is what we believe will happen.

Man City Will Go for the Kill

To be fair, this has been Manchester City’s strategy the entire season. This is why they have won the Premier League two years in a row. But, back in the day, the blues from Manchester did not have that killer instinct in the most important matches.

Just remember the rematch with Real Madrid last season. They should have gone to the finals then. But, they left their rival alive and they paid dearly. This season, they will definitely try not to let that happen.

You can expect Manchester City to try to score two early goals and kill the game off as soon as possible. This is the only right way for them to approach this game. Inter is an Italian side that has enough experience to make their rivals pay. The boys in blue must not allow them the chance to do that.

Guardiola Will Not Overthink Things

It is safe to say that this is one of Man City fans’ biggest concerns right now. In their last Champions League final against Chelsea, Pep Guardiola’s experiment cost City the title. He simply left out a defensive midfielder and they lost because of that. That Mason Mount pass would be intercepted if Man City had a defensive midfielder in that game.

But, that is in the past and people who live in the blue part of Manchester hope that Guardiola has learned from his mistakes.

Most likely, he will put his best eleven men in the starting lineup. Of course, we still need to see who will be injured and who will be available for the match. But, because Manchester City won the Premier League title a few matches before the end of the season, Pep was able to rest his most important players.

Which Star Will Shine on the Biggest Stage?

Well, Pep, of course. No, but in all seriousness, we expect De Bruyne and Erling Haaland to prove to the world that they are the best duo at the moment. Inter will surely defend most of the game and that will leave enough space for those two to do what they do best – create chances and score goals.

Regardless of which team you are rooting for, it is safe to say that this will be a rather intriguing Champions League final.
