Manchester City vs Chelsea UCL Final Prediction: Line ups
Thomas Tuchel will stick to his favored 3-4-3 formation which has worked for him at Chelsea. We might see an odd surprise from Tuchel from the line-up prediction mentioned in the image for the UCL final.
Pep Guardiola has a fully fit squad at his disposal and hence, would go with his usual 4-2-3-1 formation. We could expect him to deploy De Bruyne as the false number 9 instead of Gabriel Jesus.
Manchester City vs Chelsea UCL Final: Prediction
Chelsea will have a psychological edge over Man City having won against Pep Guardiola's men in their last two meetings including an F.A Cup semi-final win.
This final is a tight one to call. Both teams have a solid defense and tactically nuanced. Hence, we expect it to go down to the wire, into extra time and probably penalties.
