Manchester City

The 2021 UEFA Champions League home team had won a staggering 17 domestic trophies since 2008 when they were bought. With five premier league champions and three FA community shields that show big domestic domination. It is time for The Citizens to add a European trophy to their cabinet. And what better way to do it if not with a UEFA Champions League trophy.

The Citizens

To the Manchester City team, boardroom, and the fans, this is the biggest stage for them. A win on the 29th of May would cement their place among the European football club’s elites. To the owner, success could equate an investment gain over the years.

Also, to the fans, this is an opportunity to spite their Manchester neighbor, Man United, and stand shoulder to shoulder with them. For Guardiola, it could be an opportunity to prove that he could win the Big Ears outside Barcelona and Lionel Messi.

While the players can use the win to elevate their status in the historical book of the club as the most incredible team ever, this is more than a final for the entire club.

Team News

Currently, Pep Guardiola has a fully fit squad to pick from. With a whole week’s rest following the final premier league game played last week, everybody is available for selection. Even Ilkay Gundogan, with a recent knock, has been declared fit. And unlike the second leg of the premier league between the two teams, there will be no chance to gamble on players.

While the availability of all players might cause selection headaches, the master tactician has claimed there would be no room for sentiment, and players would be picked on merit or tactical formation.

Full Man City squad for Champions League final:

  • GOALKEEPERS: Ederson, Zack Steffen, Scott Carson, James Trafford
  • DEFENDERS: Benjamin Mendy, Aymeric Laporte, Joao Cancelo, Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias, Eric Garcia, John Stones, Nathan Ake, Aleks Zinchenko
  • MIDFIELDERS: Ilkay Gundogan, Rodri, Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, Fernandinho
  • FORWARDS: Riyad Mahrez, Phil Foden, Ferran Torres, Gabriel Jesus, Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling.

Road to Final

Having played 12 games so far, Manchester City has won 11 games with a single draw and no loss. Even though the only stalemate may have come from the same stadium where the final will be played, a goalless draw against Porto in the group stage, that doesn’t diminish the fine display Guardiola’s men have shown since the beginning of this year tournament.

A home and away victory against the last year’s finalist, PSG, even further the claim of Manchester City of being the team to beat. Another interesting fact to note is that this team has only conceded a paltry total of 4 goals so far in the tournament—a testament to the group’s overall strength.


The West London club has won the champions league before, following a dramatic win over Bayern Munich on penalty shout-out in 2012. However, they got heartbroken the first time they qualified for the final during their loss against Manchester United in 2008.

While the current Blues might be full of young blood with only a few veterans in Azpilicueta and Thiago Silva, this could be a chance for them to show how far they have become and what is expected to come in the near future. Perhaps European domination like Real Madrid and Barcelona in recent years.

The Blues

Thomas Tuchel and Thiago Silva were part of the last season UEFA Champions league finalist when PSG lost narrowly to a high-flying Bayern Munich team. To these two people, this is a chance to win that elusive cup and earn the much-coveted recognition in the footballing world.

Team News

Even though there were recent doubts about the fitness of Edouard Mendy and N’golo Kante, the two have been declared fit and part of the team going to Estadio Dragao. Chelsea, like their opponent, also has a fully fit squad to pick from.

Full Chelsea Squad for Champions League Final:

  • GOALKEEPERS: Kepa Arrizabalaga, Willy Caballero, Édouard Mendy
  • DEFENDERS: Antonio Rüdiger, Andreas Christensen, Thiago Silva, Kurt Zouma, Marcos Alonso, Ben Chilwell, Emerson, Reece James, César Azpilicueta
  • MIDFIELDERS: Jorginho, N’Golo Kanté, Mateo Kovačić, Billy Gilmour
  • ATTACKERS: Tammy Abraham, Timo Werner, Olivier Giroud, Christian Pulisic, Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz, Tino Anjorin

Road to Final

While Chelsea doesn’t have an unbeaten record in this year’s champions league run, they have, however, won against more challenging opponents. A two-legged victory against the La Liga champions, Athletico Madrid in the round of 16; a 2-0 victory at the same stadium for the final against Porto in the quarterfinal; and a convincing victory against the Spanish giant, Real Madrid in the semifinal has also proven that Chelsea is no pushovers.
