Chelsea Vs Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League final

Chelsea will play Manchester City in the UEFA champions league final after a 2-0 win over Real Madrid and 3-1 on aggregate. 

After a 1-1 draw in Spain, Timo Werner, who earlier had a goal disallowed for offside, headed Chelsea ahead after Kai Havertz’s chip rebounded off the bar.

Real’s Karim Benzema had a low strike and a header superbly saved by Blues goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.

But Chelsea dominated the second half and Mason Mount scored late on to wrap the win.

Manchester City made it to the final after a 4-1 aggregate win over last year’s finalists PSG . City had won the first leg 2-1 to assert their strength in this year’s tournament.

This is first city’s final appearance in the tournament and the first for Pep Guardiola since 2011 .

Pep last won it with Barcelona where they beat Manchester united. Chelsea on the other hand won their first champions league trophy in 2012 beating Bayern Munich in penalties.

It is also the all English final in recent time after Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur  were involved in 2019 .

Liverpool emerged champions before surrendering the trophy to now champions Bayern Munich.   

The final will be played in Istanbul Turkey on 29th of May.
