Chelsea has won the UEFA Champions League on Saturday. They defeated Manchester City at Porto with a scoreline of 1-0. Kai Havertz scored the winning goal. The Blues were worthy victors. Also, Pep Guardiola was trolled for his starting XI.
About The Match:
Pep did not put any proper striker for the final Champions League Final. It cost them very badly. The city could not make any positive attacks in the first half.
For Chelsea, N’Golo Kante gave another brilliant performance. He was also the man of the match of the finals. He won 4 Man of the Match awards in this UCL Season.
Also, Mason Mount was very good in this match. He was also the hero in the semis against Real Madrid. In the final, he provides a brilliant assist. After picking the pass from Mount Kai Havertz was only left with Ederson. He dribbled past Ederson and scored the most valuable goal of the season for Chelsea.
Manchester City has to wait for more to win UCL. This is the first time they appeared in UCL Final. But, for Pep it is the third time. Before this final, Pep never lost in the UCL finals.
He appeared in UCLs Final with Barcelona in 2009 and 2011. Both times he defeated Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United. But this time his decision of picking the first XI is questionable.
In the first half, Manchester City was 1 goal down. Also, bad luck for Man City as their best player, Kevin De Bruyne, left the pitch in the 58th minute. He collided with Rudiger in a 50-50 ball.
After Sergio Aguero came into the game, City looked more confident. That time Phil Foden got a golden opportunity but Rudiger made a brilliant final tackle.
For Man City, Kyle Walker created many chances but no one could convert it. At the last moment, a cross came into the box but there is no one to put the ball into the net.
Chelsea Won Champions League for the Second Time:
Anyways, Chelsea won their second Champions League. They well deserve a champion. Also, we need to give credit to Thomas Tuchel. Last time he lost in the UCL Final against Bayern Munich. That time he was with PSG. In the mid-season, Chelsea brought him as a coach of Chelsea. He replaced Frank Lampard and delivered a UCL trophy.
For Chelsea N’Golo Kante and Rudiger were the best players in the finals.
