For City, the match comes a week after their FA Cup victory against arch-rivals Manchester United. That win ensures they are going for the Treble – a feat only achieved in the UK once before, by United.

Where is it taking place?
The Champions League final will be held at Istanbul’s Ataturk Olympic Stadium. It will be the second Champions League final to be staged there, with few needing reminding of the first – Liverpool beating AC Milan on penalties having trailed 3-0 at half-time back in 2005. The “Miracle of Istanbul” is one of the most sensational comebacks in the competition’s history.
Who are the current champions?
Real Madrid defeated Liverpool 1-0 in Paris last year thanks to a Vinicius Junior second-half strike. It was the club’s 14th triumph in the competition, extending their own record. On the back of that victory, Carlo Ancelotti became the first coach to win the European Cup four times. He is also the only one to have taken a team to five finals, but was denied the opportunity to reach a sixth after his side lost to City in this year’s semi-final.
Who are the experts saying will win?
Kylian Mbappe has said: “It is going to be a great game. I think Manchester City are going to win.” Trent Alexander-Arnold said: “I think City are always the favourites for everything.”
