Manchester City have won their first Uefa Champions League title following a 1-0 win over Inter Milan on Saturday night in Instanbul.

Rodri broke the deadlock in the 68th minute to score a massive goal for the Citizens after a period of dominance from Pep Guardiola’s men.

Inter started the final brightly, closing off Man City’s players in the middle of the park and suffocating Ilkay Gündoğan, Rodri and Kevin De Bruyne.

City finally wins the elusive Champions League

De Bruyne was forced out injured towards the end of the first-half and was replaced by Phil Foden who immediately made an impact in the middle of the park.

The two teams went into the half-time tunnel level but Inter were the happier side having pressed and contained City’s attack.

Pep’s men started the second-half like a house on fire bossing possession and asking questions to the Inter defence.

The pressure eventually told when Rodri fired home the opener.

Akanji feed a delicious ball down the line to Bernado Silva level with the goal line. The Portugal international managed to cut back to a perfect square of space in the middle of the box, and Rodri delivered an inch-perfect finish to give the English side the lead. 

Pep finally wins his third Champions League title

Substitute Romelu Lukaku had a chance to equalise for Inter in the final minutes but his header was saved by Ederson. A minute later, the Belgium international had a chance to score but his shot went wide off goal.

After the fnal, tweeps complained about Lukaku’s missed chances.

@TheEuropeanLad said; “Lukaku with the biggest chance of the game in the 90th minute but Ederson denied him.”

@stadcfc said,” Inter getting their karma for making us pay 100m for Lukaku.
