Champions League Final- Manchester City vs Chelsea

INTRODUCTION

Manchester City take on their famed opponents Chelsea in the final match of the 2020–21 UEFA Champions League competition on 29 May 2021, Saturday at the Estadio do Dragao in Porto, Portugal. The Cityzens from Manchester have been designated as the home team for this occasion and one can safely assume that they will also enter it as favourites. However, it has to be noted that quite recently, in the English Premier League competition as well as the FA Cup, Chelsea had unceremoniously defeated Manchester City. In the former, Chelsea went ahead by a 2–1 scoreline while in the latter, they beat them 1–0. This will remain in the collective memory of Manchester City and their fans and ensure that they do not take this encounter lightly at all. The visiting side Chelsea, who are very good at reading situations and converting them into their favour, can take hope from the fact that Manchester City have never played in a Champions League final before.

Similarly, their defence, which has got a new lease of life after new signing Ruben Dias was introduced, consists of some very tough and solid technical defenders in John Stones, Aymeric Laporte and Joao Cancelo. In particular, the Portuguese defensive duo of Ruben Dias and Joao Cancelo has been brilliant for manager Pep Guardiola and there is no doubt in our minds that even their backup players such as Oleksandr Zinchenko and Kyle Walker can step up whenever their time comes for doing so.
