Manchester City v Chelsea Betting Preview
Manchester City will aim to complete an unprecedente treble, as they have already won the Premier League and the Carabao Cup this term. The Citizens are in good form having won 7 of their last 10 matches despite taking their foot off the gas in the Premier League since the start of the month. Pep Guardiola's men come into the UCL Final on the back of an impressive 5-0 win over Everton on the final day of the Premier League season. They have won 11 and drawn one of their 12 Champions League matches this season.
Chelsea come into this final in their worst form of Tuchel’s reign as they have lost three of their last four. A poor 1-0 home defeat to Arsenal was followed up with a 1-0 defeat in the FA Cup final at the hands ofLeicester. Furthermore, the Blues were lucky to clinch a top four finish in the Premier League as they lost 2-1 at Aston Villa after a very poor display. They have been beaten only five times in all competitions since Thomas Tuchel took charge but their limp FA Cup Final defeat and subsequent League loss at Villa Park will be a big concern.
Saturday marks City’s first appearance in the final and will be the third for Chelsea, who won the Champions League cup back in 2012 when they beat Bayern Munich on their home ground.
These two heavyweights have met three times this season. Manchester City won 3-1 at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League in January, but Chelsea beat the Citizens 1-0 in the FA Cup semi-finals and then left the Etihad with a 2-1 League win on May 8.
Two years ago, Chelsea faced Manchester City in a Carabao Cup final that went to penalties, with City prevailing 4-3 after a goalless draw at Wembley.

Team News & Probable Line-Ups
Manchester City (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Stones, Rúben Dias, Zinchenko; Bernardo Silva, Fernandinho, Gündogan; Mahrez, De Bruyne, Foden
Man City have little to worry about in terms of injury problems as only Ilkay Gundogan is not 100% fit after being forced off against Brighton. Anyway, Guardiola is confident the German international can recover in time for the big match. Joao Cancelo was nowhere to be seen against Everton and is facing an uphill battle to displace Oleksandr Zinchenko on the left-hand side while Kyle Walker looks sure to start as left-back. Fernandinho isl ikely to anchor the midfield, with Kevin De Bruyne moved in the offensive trio alongside Riyad Mahrez and Phil Foden. The likes of Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling provide further options in attack.
Chelsea (3-4-2-1): Mendy; Christensen, Thiago Silva, Rüdiger; Azpilicueta, Jorginho, Kanté, Chilwell; Pulisic, Mount; Werner
The Londoners have two key injury concerns in midfielder N’Golo Kante and goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, but the duo returned to training on Wednesday and should be fit to feature from the off. Andreas Christensen is expected to start in the three man backline, with Cesar Azpilicueta as right wing-back. Ben Chilwell will play on the other flank, with Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount supporting the lone striker Timo Werner upfront. The likes of Reece James and Callum Hudson-Odoi provide viable alternatives as wing-backs as well as Kai Havertz and Olivier Giroud in the offensive roles.
Our Manchester City v Chelsea PredictionsMan City have won their last seven Champions League matches and have in Pep Guardiola a specialist of finals: the Spanish manager has won 14 of his 15 cup finals when he has been in charge. Hence, Chelsea will have an uphill task to stop Manchester City completing the treble. These teams conceded the fewest goals of any teams in the English Premier League: the Citizens conceded 32 and the Blues 36 goals. Hence, we don't expect a high scoring affair. Anyway, both teams could find the back of the net and we strongly recommend to back the BTTS at 4/1 courtesy of William Hill's new customer offer. A 2-1 scoreline is our pick in the correct score market, while Riyad Mahrez is the in-form player and could be the right name in the Anytime Goalscorer market.
