It’s time for the final showdown of the UEFA Champions League 2020-21, with an all-English final wrapping up the unprecedented season. The newly crowned Premier League title winners Manchester City, are all set to lock horns with Chelsea at Estadio de Drago, Porto on Saturday, May 29 (May 30 in India).
The two teams last met in a Premier League tie, where Thomas Tuchel’s men secured a 2-1 victory over Pep Guardiola’s side at the Etihad stadium. The City will be eyeing a treble win, while clinching their maiden Champions League trophy, after winning the Carabao Cup and Premier League this season. On the other hand, the Blues will be looking for redeeming the glory after losing the FA Cup final to Leicester City. This mouthwatering all-English final is expected to be witnessed by 16,500 spectators live from Estadio de Drago.
