It’s also been 51 years since Manchester City played in a European final, the last one being in the 1970 Cup Winner’s Cup final against Gornik Zabrze, beating them 2-1. It was the longest gap for a team between finals. So they will definitely have to give it their all, since it’s been so long to get there and who knows if they will do it again.
They’ve just recently secured the English Premier League title on May 23rd, taking down Everton in the last match of the season. Regarding their team form, they will most likely keep the one they’ve been using, meaning that Sergio Aguero might not be a starter, perhaps he won’t be part of it at all and sit on the bench. We’ll have to wait and see what Pep has in store for Chelsea.
