UEFA Champions League: Manchester City vs Inter Milan – Preview and Updates

The UEFA Champions League features arguably the biggest match of the season so far, with Inter Milan taking on Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in a historic clash at Istanbul’s Ataturk Olympic Stadium on Sunday.

Inter Milan finished third in Serie A last season and have been fairly impressive this season. The Nerazzurri defeated Torino 1-0 in their previous match and will need to work hard this weekend to achieve a similar result.

Manchester City has already won two trophies this season and has been in superb form since the beginning of the year. The Cityzens won the FA Cup last week against Manchester United and could complete the treble in this game.

Manchester City and Inter Milan will face off in the UEFA Champions League on 11th June 2023 at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium.

Manchester City vs Inter Milan Head-to-Head and Key Numbers

  • Manchester City and Inter Milan have a level head-to-head record, with each team winning one of the two matches played between the two teams.
  • English and Italian teams have met four times in the UEFA Champions League, with Liverpool being the only English team to face an Italian team in the competition.
  • Manchester City has only appeared in two European finals in their history, losing to Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League final in 2021 by a 1-0 score.
  • Inter Milan is competing in their 11th major European final – only Juventus and AC Milan have a better record in this category.
  • Manchester City is attempting to become the fourth English team to win the UEFA Champions League, potentially making England the country with the most different Champions League winners.

Statistics for Manchester City and Inter Milan

Manchester City

Man City dominated the second leg of their Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid. The first leg ended in a 1-1 tie, giving City the advantage going into the second leg against the Spanish giants. Two first-half goals from Silva put Guardiola’s men ahead, and two more goals from Akanji and Alvarez sealed the victory.

Man City enters the final without any major injury concerns or suspended players, so Guardiola must make some important decisions about who will play.

Inter Milan

Inter Milan’s semi-final against their neighbors and arch-rivals AC Milan was also relatively straightforward. Following a 2-0 ‘away’ win, Inter tightened up at the back once more, and Martinez scored in the second half to secure a 3-0 aggregate victory for Inzaghi’s men.

The main doubt for the Italians this weekend is Joaquin Correa. An Argentine international’s muscle injury could keep him out of the Champions League final, which would be a travesty.

Key Facts

  1. This will be the first competitive encounter between these two teams. It will also be the first Champions League final between two sides since the 2005 final (Liverpool vs AC Milan).
  2. Erling Haaland has scored 12 goals for Manchester City this season in the Champions League, the joint-most for an English team in a single season.

Manchester City vs Inter Milan Prediction

Manchester City are arguably the best team in the world right now, and they have a fantastic squad at their disposal. Pep Guardiola has not won a UEFA Champions League trophy in 12 years and now has the chance to do so for Manchester City.

Inter Milan fought their way to the final admirably and will need to be at their best in this game to have a chance. On paper, Manchester City is the better team and has the advantage in this game. Check out the odds at Cricbaba!

Manchester City vs Inter Milan Key Player:

Erling Haaland – Even though City has so many talented players in their team, let alone their squad, Erling Haaland is the player to watch on Sunday. He has 12 Champions League goals this season, which ties him with Ruud van Nistelrooy for the most goals in a single season for an English club in 2002-03. Of course, if he scores against Inter, he will be able to move clear, and stopping him will be critical to the Italian side’s chances.
