The UEFA Champions League final is just around the corner and the 2021 edition of the prestigious tournament will feature two clubs from the English Premier League, as Chelsea take on Manchester City in Porto.
Manchester City has been impressive all season long and they are sure to leave everything out there as this is the trophy the club has been hunting for the past decade. One worry for The Cityzens coming into this game has to be their back line, as they have been solid for most of the year, but have recently conceded plenty of goals to the likes of Newcastle and Brighton who both managed to score 3 times apiece.
There was not much left to play for at the end of the season though, so I am sure we will see a City defense who will be ready to lock down these Chelsea attackers who do possess some serious talent.
On the other side of the pitch this City team will put an incredible offense out there on the pitch which will be led by Kevin de Bruyne who is one of the best midfielders in the world right now and with options like Mahrez and Foden on the wings he will have plenty of opportunities to unlock this Chelsea defense.
Formation is a bit tough to call here for Manchester City, as they could go with a 4-3-3 or a more traditional 4-4-2 and given the way this team lined up in their last Champions League outing I think it is slightly more likely to be the latter.
Chelsea probably did not expect to be in this position after firing Frankie Lampard, but here they are looking to win their first Champions League since 2012 and they should be able to play quite freely here, as they have much less to lose then their opponents at least in terms of the public eye.
Chelsea have been getting the job done by playing extremely sound defensive football with quick counter attacks utilizing the speed they have from their wing backs like Reece James who has had a fantastic season.
Teuchel will come into this game lining his players up in a 3-4-2-1 formation with Werner leading the charge up front and although the German striker has not really lived up to the hype since transferring from RB Leipzig many of those struggles will be forgiven if he can come up with the goods here on Saturday.
Free Manchester City vs. Chelsea Champions League Prediction:
These type of big finals usually turn out to be cagey and defensive occasions and I think this one will be no different, as this is just too big of a prize to risk leaving yourself vulnerable at the back by constantly pushing up the pitch.
These teams can both possess the ball for long periods of time building up their play and with these two defensive minded teams it is going to be awfully tough to break down the other if they have 11 men behind the ball.
