However, when the game began, it was all Chelsea.

They defeated Porto 2-1 on aggregate, securing a place in the semi-finals.

During the semi-finals, Thomas Tuchel met Real Madrid, the other side of Madrid.

Everyone assumed that the Blues’ season was coming to an end.

This will be their first participation in the final since they defeated Bayern Munich in 2012.

In the semi-finals, Pep Guardiola’s team faced Paris Saint-Germain in the “oil-money derby.”

During Pep Guardiola’s tenure, Manchester City never advanced beyond the Quarters, and everyone assumed that this would be the end of their adventure.

PSG fielded their best lineup, which included Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.

However, those two simply did not demonstrate their actual worth by failing to score against the tight City defense.

Manchester City easily defeated them 4-1, securing their place in the final against Chelsea.

Pep Guardiola has already won the Premier League and the Carabao Cup this season.

They are now vying for the prestigious “treble,” and if they succeed, they will be only the second Premier League team to do it.

Only the Reds of Manchester have ever won the coveted “treble,” which includes the Champions League.

Manchester City will compete in their first Champions League final, hoping to win their first major European title under Pep Guardiola.

Potential Lineup

Both of these clubs have had to deal with one or more player injuries.

Chelsea recently had to replace goalkeeper Mendy due to a rib injury suffered midway through the game.

Aside from Mendy, Ngolo Kante was out with a hamstring injury and missed a lot of games.

However, Thomas Tuchel has received a big boost because the entire squad has been pronounced: “fit to play.”

That means Edouard Mendy and Ngolo Kante will both start the final.

Manchester City’s German midfielder Illkay Gundogan and Belgian prodigy Kevin De Bruyne were both injured recently, according to reports.

However, this does not appear to be a significant situation, thus they will be joining the squad.

Based on our analysis, we anticipate both teams will field the following lineup:

Chelsea’s starting eleven are: Mendy, Azpilicueta, Silva, Rudiger, James, Kante, Kovacic, Chilwell, Mount, Havertz, and Werner.

Man City’s starting lineup includes Ederson, Cancelo, Laporte, Dias, Mendy, Rodri, Silva, KDB, Sterling, Aguero, and Mahrez.

Stats for Each League

Manchester City easily won the Premier League 20/21 season, finishing with 86 points.

They won a total of twenty-seven games, scoring 83 goals and allowing only 32.

Chelsea, on the other hand, finished fourth in the league with 67 points, scoring 58 and conceding only 36.

They have finished in the top four for the past two seasons in a row.
