Manchester City – Chelsea (Saturday, May 29, 9 p.m.)

It surely has been a ride, this year’s edition of the Champions League. Some of the best teams in the world were forced out of the competition by brave underdogs. Last year’s champion Bayern Munich couldn’t get its chance to defend its title, and others like Paris Saint-Germain didn’t make the cut.

For Manchester City, this football season has been another highly successful one, with the Premier League title in its pocket already ahead of the end of the season. Chelsea remains without a prize. Will the final in Porto, led by Spanish referee Antonio Miguel Mateo Lahoz, bring silverware?

Bet on the Champions League final!

Manchester City’s background

There was once more little that could dent the Manchester City machine this season. In the Champions League as well as the domestic Premier League, the Citizens have proceeded with authority on all fronts. Just the FA Cup escaped their grasp this year.

When we take a look at the odds, it’s Manchester City too who has the upper hand here. But as we saw in the Europa League final, odds don’t tell the whole story. History, form, circumstance, sheer luck and so much more: it all needs to be factored in for a successful bet.

On their way to the final, the Citizens have indeed shown remarkable form. They made short work of Borussia Mönchengladbach (round of 16), Borussia Dortmund (quarter-finals) and Paris Saint-Germain (semi-finals). The stage is set for Kevin De Bruyne to lead his team to victory once more!

Professional’s prediction: KDB to score the first goal @7.60 would be a great way to start!

Chelsea’s background

Chelsea is far from an also-ran in any league it competes in, but for a long time, it had somewhat of an underdog status. Good on the Blues, then, for reaching the Champions League final! In the Premier League, where both finalists know each other well enough, Chelsea won twice this year.

This indicates that the chances for Chelsea to win the Champions League are slightly better than the odds might tell us. On the other hand, the London outfit needed penalty shootouts to decide a result in the previous two finals it competed in. If the Blues win the title, it could be through penalties.

Like their opponent of this final, Chelsea have overcome quite some obstacles along the way. It defeated Spanish champion Atlético Madrid (round of 16), 2020-2021 revelation Porto (quarter-finals) and finally Real Madrid (semi-finals). What can Chelsea bring to the pitch this evening?

Professional’s prediction: go for ‘Half-time/Full time: Manchester City/Manchester City’ @2.90!
