The world’s attention is on today’s 2023 UEFA Champions League final between Manchester City and Inter Milan.
Despite boasting more trophies both domestically and in Europe than the Cityzens, the Nerazzurri enter Saturday’s final as the underdogs.
Whichever way one looks at it, both teams possess strong squads and plenty of firepower, however, there are a few key areas where each team could potentially win or lose the match.
Manchester City are the odds-on favorites to win the Champions League for the first time. The English team has been in terrific form this season, and their team includes some truly world-class players, including Kevin De Bruyne, Erling Haaland, and Ilkay Gundogan, among others.
City’s offensive strength will be a big asset in the final, and they will attempt to score early to put Inter on the back foot, but they must be aware of Inter’s counter-attacking threat and be disciplined at the back if they are not to concede an early goal.
Inter will be happy to be the underdogs, hoping to cause an upset and win their first UCL title since 2010. The Italian side has been in decent form this season and possesses some experienced players like Edin Dzeko, Marcelo Brozovic, and Francesco Acerbi.
Inter’s strength in midfield will also be a major asset in the final, and winning the midfield battle will be top of Coach Simone Inzaghi’s plans. They will also need to be clinical with their goal-scoring chances if they are to have any chance of winning the match.
Let’s save the talks as we keep our hands and legs crossed and enjoy the match below;
