Manchester City vs Chelsea UEFA Champions League Final Match

Manchester City vs Chelsea UEFA Champions League Final Match Preview or Key Statistics 📊

Chelsea have won their last two matches against Manchester City in all competitions, both coming since Thomas Tuchel took over at the club. They last won three in a row against Manchester City between 2005 and 2009, when they won eight in a row.

In European competition, Chelsea and Manchester City’s only previous meetings came in the 1970-71 Cup Winners’ Cup semi-final – Chelsea won both legs 1-0 to progress to the final, where they beat Real Madrid after a replay.

Manchester City are the ninth different English team to reach a European Cup/UEFA Champions League final, at least three more than any other nation (Germany & Italy, 6). However, only one of the last 10 teams competing in their first final have won, with Borussia Dortmund winning 3-1 against Juventus in 1997. The last English team to win their first final was Aston Villa in 1982 against Bayern Munich.

This is the third year running a team will play in the European Cup/Champions League final for the first time (Tottenham in 2019, PSG in 2020, Manchester City in 2021). This is the first time there has been a maiden finalist in three consecutive years since 1986 – 1988 (Steaua Bucharest, FC Porto, PSV).

Chelsea and Manchester City met in the Premier League earlier in May – a 2-1 Chelsea win – and are the first teams to compete in a major European final in the same month they face in a league game since Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund in May 2013. The two German sides drew 1-1 in the Bundesliga, before a 2-1 Bayern win at Wembley in the UEFA Champions League final.

Both Chelsea and Manchester City have conceded just four goals in this season’s UEFA Champions League; the first time both teams competing in the final have conceded four or fewer goals on their way to reaching the showpiece event since 2005-06, when Arsenal conceded two and Barcelona four before meeting in that season’s final.

Manchester City have won 11 UEFA Champions League matches this season and victory in this match would see them equal the all-time record of 12 by Real Madrid in 2001-02, although the Spaniards played 17 matches that campaign, compared to City’s 13 this season.

It is 51 years since Manchester City last played in a major European final - beating Górnik Zabrze 2-1 in the 1970 Cup Winners’ Cup final - breaking the record for the longest gap between finals for a team, with Sporting CP going 41 years between the 1964 Cup Winners’ Cup final and 2005 UEFA Cup final.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is looking to win his third UEFA Champions League trophy, having won it in 2009 and 2011 with Barcelona. He would become only the third manager to win the title three times, along with Carlo Ancelotti (2003, 2007, 2014) and Zinedine Zidane (2016, 2017, 2018).

Having also led PSG to the 2019-20 UEFA Champions League final, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is the first manager to reach the European Cup/Champions League final in consecutive seasons with different clubs. Tuchel could be the third manager to lose a final in consecutive seasons, after Marcello Lippi (1997 & 1998, Juventus) and Héctor Cúper (2000 & 2001, Valencia).

In his entire managerial career, Man City manager Pep Guardiola has lost more matches against Chelsea in all competitions than any other club (7). He has lost his last two games against the Blues, only losing three in a row against Real Madrid (2012-14) and Liverpool (2018).

This year’s final will be held at the Estádio do Dragão in Portugal, marking the first time that the European Cup/UEFA Champions League final has been held in the same country in consecutive seasons (Estádio da Luz in 2019-20). It will also be the first time a European Cup/UEFA Champions League final in Portugal has been played outside of the capital Lisbon, with the previous three all being played there.

Manchester City’s Phil Foden will be 21 years & 1 day old for this final and could potentially become the third-youngest Englishman to start in a UEFA Champions League final, after Owen Hargreaves in 2001 for Bayern Munich (20y 123d) and Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold in both 2018 (19y 231d) and 2019 (20y 237d).

Chelsea goalkeeper Édouard Mendy has kept eight clean sheets in 11 games in this season’s UEFA Champions League, with only two goalkeepers ever keeping nine in a single season – Santiago Cañizares for Valencia in 2000-01 and Keylor Navas for Real Madrid in 2015-16.

Both Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez have scored in the quarter-final and semi-final of this season’s UEFA Champions League for Manchester City. The last time two players scored for a team in the quarter-final, semi-final and final of a European Cup/Champions League season was Alfredo Di Stéfano and Ferenc Puskás in 1959-60 for Real Madrid.

Since featuring in a 2-1 defeat to Lyon in September 2018, Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva is unbeaten in his last 26 UEFA Champions League matches (W23 D3) – the longest unbeaten run in the history of the competition. His team-mate Phil Foden is on the second-longest current run, unbeaten in 21 matches (W18 D3) since playing in a defeat to Basel in March 2018.

Chelsea defender Thiago Silva featured in last season’s UEFA Champions League final for PSG and could become the fifth player to play in the final in consecutive seasons with different teams, after Marcel Desailly (1993 Marseille, 1994 Milan), Paulo Sousa (1996 Juventus, 1997 Borussia Dortmund), Samuel Eto’o (2009 Barcelona, 2010 Inter Milan) and Álvaro Morata (2014 Real Madrid, 2015 Juventus).

Should he play in this match, it will be Sergio Agüero’s final appearance for Manchester City. The Argentinian has scored 13 goals against Chelsea for City - only scoring more against Newcastle United - although he hasn’t scored in any of his last four appearances against them since a hat-trick in February 2019, including missing a penalty in their 2-1 defeat in the Premier League earlier this season.
