For quite a long time, Manchester City has been trying to win a previously unassailable trophy, but the Champions League has never yet submitted to the Citizens. Now the chances are very high, because the club has already got to the final, and the opponents include Chelsea. You should watch livescore today and analyze past games on the reliable statistics website.
In the English Champions League final, bookmakers see Manchester City as the favorite. The Citizens have a well-played squad, although Chelsea is not inferior in this regard. Manchester City’s best players are currently as follows:
- Kevin De Bruyne. The Belgian has gained optimal shape and keeps improving the team’s attacking actions. The match against Chelsea will allow Kevin to prove that it was the Aristocrats’ mistake not to give him a chance to show himself.
- Riyad Marez. In the Champions League, the Algerian plays much better than in the Premier League, because his place in the core is undoubtful. Marez may not score, but the club needs his experience and speed against the opponent’s fast flankers.
- Ilkay Gundogan. Even before the season started, the German could find himself at Schalke or Bayer Leverkusen. There were plenty of rumors about him leaving Manchester City, but the head coach Pep Guardiola asked him to play again. Ilkay started from the reserve, but gradually improved his shape and scored 13 goals – the best result in the team.
You can watch all of them today in the livescore. The Premier League is over and only the CL final is left. Special attention should also be paid to Phil Foden. The Manchester City graduate could follow the example of Jaydon Sancho but decided to choose a place in the starting squad and is now considered the team’s star.
Champions League table: the best clubs
The current football season has brought a lot of positive emotions. If you look at the Champions League table, there were few sensations. The failure of Inter, as well as the poor game of Manchester United are worth mentioning. The Italians didn’t get out of the easy group at all, and the Red Devils qualified for the final round of the Europa League instead of the Champions League playoffs.
For the rest, there was nothing unpredictable at the group stage. The best League Champions teams according to the table are:
- Manchester City;
Torino played well in the group, but the playoffs were unlucky from the beginning and the Old Signora left as the 1/8 final losing to Porto. It was the Portuguese who were considered the easiest opponent for everyone but surprised the football community and reached the quarterfinals. An interesting season is over, and now the fans are waiting for a new one.
