UEFA Champions League Final: How did the teams get here?

Inter beat Serie A rival AC Milan

After beating a pair of Portuguese Liga squads in the Round of 16 and then in the quarterfinals, Inter bested FC Porto in the knockout stage and then got by Benfica in the quarters, Internazionale faced rival AC Milan.

How big of a rivalry is AC Milan versus Internazionale? The rivalry might be one of the top in soccer history.

The rivalry is so intense that the two teams share the same stadium, the Giuseppe Meazza, named after Inter Milan’s former player and the greatest Italian footballer ever.

Many expected an arduous 2-match aggregate. But all Inter did was jump out to a 2-0 goal lead in the first match. Then in the second match, Internazionale bested AC Milan 1-0.

The aggregate win against AC Milan sets it up for a massive UEFA Champions League ending match versus Man City. 

The Manchester City Sky Blues ended Real Madrid’s back-to-back title dream

The Sky Blues beat a couple of German Bundesliga squads in the knockout stage and the quarterfinals to stamp their ticket to the UEFA Champions League crowning match. 

Man City had to get by RB Leipzig in the Champions League Round of 16. After the first match, a 1-1 draw, Leipzig fans believed they had a chance.

But City ended those thoughts early in an incredible 7-0 second match aggregate victory. Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin De Bruyne scored goals. The hero of Man City’s match, though, was Erling Haaland.

Haaland came to Manchester this season after playing most of his career at Dortmund. Maybe because of his familiarity with throwing down against RB Leipzig, Haaland managed five goals in the 7-0 victory. 

Erling was also instrumental in Manchester City’s Champions League Quarter Finals victory over Bayern Munich. Haaland scored a goal with Rodri and Bernardo Silva in the Citizens’ 3-0 first-leg victory against Bayern. Then in the second match versus Bayern, Haaland scored City’s lone goal in the 1-1 draw. 

Manchester City also played a 1-1 draw against Real Madrid in their first Champions League semifinal leg. For much of the match, it looked as if Real might pull off an upset win.

Vinicius Junior gave El Blanco a 1-0 lead. City struggled after that until Kevin De Bruyne made a fantastic shot. 

In the second leg, it was all Manchester City. The Citizens blasted Real 4-0. 

Why Manchester City can beat Internazionale

Earlier in the season, the Sky Blues struggled on defense. There are no longer any questions regarding the defense.

The Sky Blues have not lost since dropping a match to Tottenham way back on Feb. 5. Since then, City has won 20 and drawn 4.

If you manage to get a kick past the Sky Blues’ defense and into the net, you must hope your defense can contain attackers Erling Haaland, Bernardo Silva, Rodri, Jack Grealish, and Julian Alvarez. All five players can kick the ball to the back of the net.

And then, if you manage to control those five players, you must pray Kevin De Bruyne doesn’t provide the magic. De Bruyne remains one of the top overall soccer players still active, and he is a master at setting up his teammates and making his shot. 

Manchester City is the most complete top-ranked club soccer team on the planet. They not only can beat Inter, most soccer handicappers expect City to top their Champions League final match rivals. 

Why Internazionale can beat Manchester City

It’s more challenging to make a case for Internazionale to win the Champions League than it is to make a case for Manchester City to take the title.

Man City is loaded at every level. Even goalie Ederson is one of the best in the world. 

Inter doesn’t have the same talent as Manchester City. But what the Sky Blues lack in talent, they make up with grit, hard work, and a belief in each other.

Inter’s success starts with their 10, Lautaro Martinez. Martinez only got a little run during Argentina’s World Cup victory. Lautaro’s getting a lot of run in Inter’s march to the Champions League title game.

Martinez scored the winning goal against AC Milan. Also, Lautaro will get one of his top teammates back for the Champions League title contest.

Belgian star Romelu Lukaku has yet to play in many Champions League matches. But on June 10, Lukaku should be healthy enough to help Martinez. 

When to play, Lukaku could determine if Inter pulls off the upset. Internazionale head coach Simone Inzaghi may play both at the start and try and get a lead. Then once Inter gets the lead, Inzaghi will replace Lukaku with a more defensive-minded forward or mid.

If the gambit works, who knows? Inter could end up winning the Champions League.
