UEFA Champions League Magazine - An Inter specialMay 26
After dismantling Real Madrid with relative ease, Manchester City head into the 2022/23 Champions League final as heavy favourites against Inter.
By the time the eyes of the world are fixed on Turkey, Pep Guardiola's men may be on the cusp of an historic treble, having already defended their Premier League title and with the FA Cup final on the horizon against Manchester United.
It is the Nerazzurri though who have the greater European pedigree, having last won Europe's premier club competition in 2010 against Bayern Munich thanks to a Diego Milito double, Inter's third Champions League triumph after winning it in 1964 and 1965.
City are still waiting for their first and got to the final two years ago, only to lose to Chelsea, who prevailed courtesy of Kai Havertz. However, now feels as good a time as ever to scratch that continental itch.
