The time has come for Manchester City and Inter Milan to battle it out in the 2022/23 UEFA Champions League final.

Pep Guardiola’s side are chasing a record-breaking season by winning the treble after English Premier League and FA Cup triumph.

Man City have never won the Champions League in their history, while Inter are three-time winners of the competition.

The Istanbul final comes 18 years after Liverpool’s miracle against AC Milan, with City hoping they can replicate the same.

City completely destroyed holders Real Madrid 5-1 on aggregate in the semis, while Inter beat city rivals Milan 3-0.

Pep Guardiola has not won the Champions League since leaving Barcelona and is desperate to add this to his impressive cabinet.

Man City could become the fourth team from England to lift the Champions League trophy in the tournament’s current format.

Inter are just the fourth side to play a Champions League final after losing their first match in the competition.

Who will be crowned kings of Europe after the final on Saturday? Is it finally time for Pep to win it with Man City?
