THE CHAAAAAMPIIOOOONS! Sounds similar doesn’t it? If you’re a football fan, you already know. Which means you also know what time it is now.

As the 2022/23 season draws to a close, everyone is now anticipating the final big game this season. It’s time for the UEFA Champions League final!

About the match

It’s Manchester City vs Inter Milan. England vs Italy (Throwback to the Euro 2020 Final). Arguably, the best team in England right now, taking on the Italian giants, who last made an appearance in the finals 13 years ago in 2010 & emerged victorious as well.

Istanbul’s Ataturk Olympic Stadium will play host to this encounter, with both sides playing each other for the first time, and what better occasion than this. With Man City on course to complete a historic treble-winning season, will they be able to add the final piece to the puzzle? Having already won the Premier League title and the FA Cup, will Inter produce a performance worthy of a “Miracle of Istanbul”?

Road to Istanbul:

Having been drawn with Sevilla, Borussia Dortmund and Copenhagen in the group stages, Manchester City ended up topping their group. After getting past two German opposition sides, RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich, in the Round of 16 and Quarter-Finals respectively, they provided one of the performances of the season after brushing past Real Madrid in the Semi-Finals with significant ease.

Truly stamping their authority on the competition and all of Europe, the final stage awaits to stake their claim as Europe’s best.

Inter Milan kicked off their campaign, having been drawn in a considerably tricky group along with Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Viktoria Plzen. After a 2nd place finish, they found themselves up against back-to-back Portuguese sides in Porto and Benfica, who they managed to get past to set up a Semi-Final against arch-rivals AC Milan in the Semi-Finals.

A tie that many looked forward to, Inter managed to achieve bragging rights while reaching a 5th finals appearance in the club’s history.

So with the stage set and both teams with the firepower and quality to go all the way, will Inter Milan add a 4th Champions League trophy to their cabinet, or will Manchester City win Europe’s elite competition for the first time ever, and cap off a treble-winning season? Find out this Saturday, 10th June to see who comes out on top.
