Manchester City vs Inter Milan Prediction
A classic attack-versus-defence matchup could occur in Istanbul as Man City have won the ball back higher up the field than any other Champions League team this season (47.2m from their own net), and Inter have done so closest to their goal (38.4m).
Although the Nerazzurri’s counterattacks can frequently be devastating, and their recent run of good form in front of goal should also help them, stopping Guardiola’s powerful frontmen will be a completely different challenge.
Guardiola’s charges have the attacking ability to finally catapult themselves to European stardom and join their formerly noisy neighbors Man United in the exclusive treble-winning club, despite Inter’s historical rearguard solidity in Europe.
Manchester City vs Inter Milan Match Preview
The winner of the Premier League defeated Real Madrid 5-1 over the course of two legs in the semi-finals to advance to the championship game, while Inter defeated fellow San Siro tenants AC Milan 3-0 overall to claim the local bragging rights.
Guardiola’s list of domestic triumphs at the Etihad is endless, and in 2022–23, he will add another Premier League trophy and an FA Cup victory to his impressive resume. However, the coveted continental honor has remained elusive to him ever since he left the comfort of Camp Nou.
Guardiola had never advanced Man City past the quarterfinals of Europe’s top competition before the 2020–21 season, and as spectators gradually returned to the stadiums after the untold disruption caused by COVID–19, the recurrent Premier League champions have come close, but not quite.
Man City were defeated by the Real Madrid juggernaut in the 2021-22 semi-finals thanks to Kai Havertz’s lone goal for Chelsea, but vengeance was a dish best served with a side of four unanswered goals during their reunion at the same stage this time around.
More Match Preview
Many were cautious not to write Carlo Ancelotti’s charges off completely before their reunion in Manchester after two flashes of individual brilliance from Vinicius Junior and Kevin De Bruyne in a cautious first leg. After all, when European silverware is the prize, Los Blancos have repeatedly disproved the doubters.
Man City tore the reigning champions to shreds with goals from Bernardo Silva (2), Manuel Akanji, and Julian Alvarez, making them the heavy favorites to finally break their Champions League hoodoo in Turkey. The 53,000-strong crowd at the Etihad, however, may have witnessed the passing of the continental torch.
After teaching their La Liga rivals a lesson in football, Man City successfully defended their Premier League title with 89 points to fend off the threat of Arsenal, whose challenge was at best a floundering one late in the game. They then defeated vengeful rivals Manchester United to win just their second FA Cup under Guardiola.
Ilkay Gundogan, a specialist in the end of seasons for Man City, shone in the Wembley sunshine. He scored a beautiful goal in the opening minute, the fastest goal ever scored in an FA Cup final, and then let loose with another volley in the second half to make Bruno Fernandes’ penalty pointless and put Man City on the verge of a fantastic treble of trophies.
Even though Man City has been outstanding at the Etihad this season, they have only won three of their last seven games away from their home stadium. Guardiola’s team also lost both of their most recent two European road games against Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. However, few Citizens supporters will be overly concerned with recent losses to Brighton & Hove Albion and Brentford.
Man City, which has scored at least once in each of its last seven Champions League games, has a chance to become the fourth English team to win the competition’s current trophy. Only one other country has three previous competition winners, and they will be sending a lot of tough representatives.
While the focus of pre-game talk may be on Man City’s quest for a domestic and continental treble, a similar haul of success is on the line for Simone Inzaghi’s knockout gurus. Inter’s attempts to thwart Napoli’s Serie A title mission proved fruitless.
Four months after defeating city rivals Milan 3-0 in the 2022–23 Supercoppa Italiana, Inter posted a similar victory over their Rossoneri opponents in the Champions League final four, though this time it took 180 minutes instead of 90. This allowed Inter to make a triumphant return to Europe’s biggest stage.
Inter eliminated any slim chances of a Milan comeback with Lautaro Martinez’s second-half goal in the second leg on May 16, following a 2-0 first-leg victory where they were designated as the “away” team at San Siro. This allowed Inter to advance to a European final for the 11th time in their illustrious history.
Eight days later, Inter defeated Fiorentina 2-1 in the Coppa Italia championship match, giving them a Supercoppa Italiana and Coppa Italia double. This was the first of two final heartbreaks for the Viola, as their hopes of winning the Europa Conference League were crushed by West Ham United. Inter will be looking to avoid suffering the same fate as their Calcio counterparts when they compete in just their second Champions League final.
Inter, who have won the European Cup twice in its previous incarnation, hasn’t won the Champions League in 13 seasons, at least not since Jose Mourinho oversaw a 2-0 victory over Bayern Munich in the 2010 final, where Argentina’s Diego Milito scored twice in Madrid.
Martinez, who along with former Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko should form the two-man attack hoping to fire the Nerazzurri to a seventh continental honor, is undoubtedly carrying on the Argentine’s legacy. The Italian powerhouses also have three UEFA Cup victories from the 1990s to brag about.
Man City’s penchant for offensive displays has received a lot of attention, but Inter’s tenacious defense has kept five clean sheets in six Champions League knockout games in 2022–23, with the exception of their 3–3 quarterfinal second-leg draw with Benfica. Only Arsenal’s defeated finalists from 2005–06 have previously recorded six knockout shutouts.
Inter was unable to stake their claim for a second Scudetto due to a springtime lull, but the Nerazzurri still board the plane to Istanbul having won 11 of their previous 12 matches in all competitions and having only failed to cause a ruckus in one of their previous 17 games.
Inzaghi’s team, following Milan in 1994–95, Bayern Munich in 1998–99, and Tottenham in the 2018–19 season, will leave the field to the Champions League theme as the fourth team to advance to the championship game after losing their first game of the competition. All three of those teams ultimately ended up collecting their runners-up medals while passing the trophy, and Inter will soon join that unwelcome company unless they can figure out how to prolong Man City’s European doom.
Manchester City vs Inter Milan Team News
Prior to Saturday’s championship game, Man City’s medical staff has largely been permitted to relax. However, Guardiola recently acknowledged that Kyle Walker had been having back issues, raising a small concern for the right-back.
Walker has since allayed doubts about his fitness, and the England international should be included in the Citizens’ fully fit contingent. The Citizens’ starting XI will undoubtedly be decided in Istanbul.
The only change should therefore be in goal, where Stefan Ortega will reluctantly hand the gloves back over to Ederson. In the FA Cup final, the same 10 outfield players who started the second-leg demolition of Real Madrid stood in line to shake Prince William’s hand.
Gundogan may bid Man City farewell on Saturday if a new contract cannot be reached. Ten years after losing the Champions League final with Borussia Dortmund to Bayern Munich, the 32-year-old will don the armband for the Premier League champions.
Yet another objective for the unstoppable Erling The 13th goal for Braut Haaland in the 2022–23 Champions League would surpass Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record of the most single–season goals for an English team. Despite missing the net against Real Madrid, the Scandinavian sensation has never gone three straight games without a goal in Europe’s premier competition.
In the Nerazzurri’s semifinal victory over AC Milan, Inter lost former Manchester United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan to a thigh injury. However, the Armenian playmaker is reportedly winning his fight to be fit for the final.
The same can be said for Argentine attacker Joaquin Correa, who suffered a calf injury against Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia final. However, if the 28-year-old is permitted to travel, he will be assigned to the bench.
Indeed, Inzaghi seems to have settled on Martinez and Dzeko as his go-to strike pairing for crucial matches, which means that Romelu Lukaku, who has struggled while on loan from Chelsea, will try to provide energy from the bench before bidding farewell for a second time. Meanwhile, if Mkhitaryan can demonstrate his fitness, he may force Marcelo Brozovic out of the starting XI.
back to the left Due to muscular exhaustion, Federico Dimarco was not even selected for the squad to play Torino on the final Serie A matchday. However, the Italian is expected to start this match, and his battle with Walker on the flank promises to be an enthralling one.
Alessandro Bastoni, Matteo Darmian, and Francesco Acerbi will protect Andre Onana, who needs one more clean sheet to tie Edouard Mendy’s record of nine from 2020–21, as the centre-back duo of Milan Skriniar and Stefan de Vrij, who were essential players on their Scudetto–winning team in 2020–21, are expected to start on the bench.
