Gareth Bale predicts Champions League final result as five-time winner visits Istanbul
Five-time Champions League-winner Gareth Bale has picked his winner ahead of Saturday's final - and he isn't expecting a close-run affair.
Manchester City will look to finally end their European hoodoo while completing a unique treble at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul. Standing in their path is Italian contenders Inter Milan, who are back in the Champions League decider for the first time since celebrating their own treble under Jose Mourinho in 2010.
As they were against Bayern Munich 13 years ago, the Nerazzurri face Pep Guardiola's side as steep underdogs to come out on top in Turkey. And Bale can only agree with the bookmakers' judgement going by his own forecast.
