Champions League Final – Man City vs. Chelsea – Betting Odds and Predictions
The Champions League Final will take place on May 29 at the Estádio do Dragão, stadium in Portugal. The initial venue for the Champions League Final was Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey but the venue had to be changed due to the COVID-19 situation.
This will be an all English affair as Manchester City will clash with Chelsea in the Champions League Final. There will be fans in attendance at Estádio do Dragão but they will be limited to a 33 percent seating capacity which will allow up to 16,500 fans to be in attendance.
Both sides should have good support as the UEFA decided to give each team a total of 6,000 tickets to balance the fan support. The rest of the tickets have been sold to the general public. The video assistant referee (VAR) system will be in play during the finals and the game will be refereed by Spain’s Antonio Miguel Mateu Lahoz.

Manchester City – Strengths and Weaknesses
Manchester City haven’t won a Champions League trophy before and will feel the pressure going into the finals even though they have had an astounding season this year. Man City have won the Premier League and the EFL Cup by being dominant throughout the season and finishing with a 53-7 record in games played this year.
When it comes to goals scored and conceded to opponents they have a spectacular record with 131-41 across their 60 games. They were so dominant this season that they put together a winning streak of 21 games under the experienced eye of manager Pep Guardiola.
Guardiola said that Man City managed to win 21 consecutive games because they were always planning ahead and not resting on their laurels. The Citizens have some great young talent in Phil Foden and Ruben Dias who will look to stamp their authority on the game against Chelsea.
Some of the other players to watch out for include Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne.
Chelsea – Strengths and Weaknesses
Chelsea have one Champions League trophy to their name as they won the final in 2012. They will be keen to get their hands on a second championship trophy with a win of Man City. Man City lost only 7 out of their 60 games but two of those losses were to Chelsea.
Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel will once again be trying to plot the downfall of Man City and will most likely go in with a defensive strategy. Chelsea will look to keep the ball out of their own goal and capitalize whenever Man City make a mistake.
The players to watch out for include goalie Kepa Arrizabalaga, Kurt Zouma, Kante, Timo Werner and Callum-Hudson-Odoi.
Champions League Final – Prediction
Given the outstanding performance of Manchester City throughout this season, we think they are going to get the better of Chelsea and finish likely with a 3-1 scoreline.
