Chelsea won their second UEFA Champions League title with a 1-0 victory over Manchester City at Porto’s Estadio do Dragao. Chelsea’s record signing Kai Havertz scored the game’s only goal on the biggest night of the season for the Blues. A first-half goal from Kai Havertz was enough to get the better of Manchester City in a pulsating final at the Estádio do Dragão.
Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola and Chelsea’s Thomas Tuchel are in Porto as excitement rises for Saturday’s all-English Champions League final in the Portuguese city that’s been named as a last-minute host.
That’s seven minutes of extra time, and City is going all out for that final shot. They switch it to Walker on the right, who sends another fantastic cross into the box, but Christensen is on ready to clear it.
Mateo Kovacic, a three-time Champions League winner, succeeds Mason Mount. Despite won three trophies with Real Madrid, this is Kovacic’s first Champions League final appearance.
Chelsea’s defense was rock tremendously strong throughout the game, with none of Manchester City’s attackers feeling at ease. Every Chelsea defender, whether Cesar Azpelicueta, Rudiger, Christensen, or James, made life difficult for City by intercepting their crosses at regular intervals.
With several fresh players on the pitch as substitutions in the second half, the Citizens seemed more at ease, but it was Chelsea who produced a great chance via Christian Pulisic in the 70th minute. The American star, though, was unable to capitalize on the opportunity.
Sergio Agüero left in tears at the final whistle. The Argentine striker has been a real servant for Manchester City.
