Champions League final: Three key Man City-Inter Milan battles where it will be won and lost
Manchester City are just hours away from potentially securing the historic Treble they have dreamed about for so long. But, before they get their hands on the silverware they must beat Inter Milan in the Champions League final.
Pep Guardiola's side will take on the Serie A giants at Istanbul's Ataturk Olympic Stadium on Saturday night, eager to secure the trophy that has eluded them for so long.
However, City's track record in the Champions League is full of heartbreak and disappointment.
DuringGuardiola's first season as City boss, the Premier League giants went gung-ho against Monaco in the last-16 and secured a 5-3 first leg lead. However, they squandered their advantage and ended up losing the tiebecause of defensive deficiencies.
The following year, the City boss decided to play Aymeric Laporte in an unfamiliar position on the left-side. As a result, Liverpool won the game 3-0 and progressed through to the next stage of the competition 5-1 on aggregate.
Guardiola was looking to turn things around in 2019 and keep their Quadruple hopes alive when they played Spurs in the quarter-finals.
