UEFA Champions League

UCL:Chelsea Vs Manchester City. Who is Winning this year's UEFA Champions League Final?

The 2021 UEFA Champions League Final will be the final match of the 2020-21 Champions League, the 66th season of Europe's premier club football tournament organised by UEFA, and the 29th season since it was renamed from the European Champion Clubs' Cup to the UEFA Champions League. It is scheduled to be played at the Estádio do Dragão in  Porto, Portugal  on Saturday 29th of May, 2021, between English clubs Manchester City, in their first UEFA Champions League final, and three-time finalists Chelsea.

The 2021 Champions League final will be played at Estadio do Dragao in Porto, Portugal. Home of Portuguese Primeira Liga side FC Porto, it has a capacity of 50,000. It will be the second year in a row that the decider is held in Portugal, with Estadio da Luz in Lisbon staging the 2020 final. The Ataturk Olympic Stadium was originally set to host the 2021 final, but UEFA moved the venue to Portugal following the UK government's decision to place Turkey on its Covid-19 travel 'red list' whiles UEFA wants Supporters at the Stadium in the Final Game.

Fenandinho, who is the captain for the Manchester City side had something to say ahead of the Saturday's Clash; "There was still that stigma of the fact that the team had never made it to the final before, that we were an inexperienced team in this competition, the club I mean – historically speaking – but I think this season our team has managed to reach a high standard. There’s no doubt that it’s a special feeling, because for me personally, having been playing in Europe for a while now, I’ve had a chance to play in many Champions League seasons and I’d only got as far as the semis with Manchester City, the quarters with Shakhtar, but I’d never made the final, so it’s really satisfying" said the Captain.

This Chelsea squad has had more than its fair share of heartbreak, with multiple cup final defeats in the last two years. Tuchel and his players know that the biggest moments in life don’t always go to plan, but that’s no reason to give up. From pain comes reflection, from reflection comes improvement and from improvement comes vindication. City might be the odds-on favourite to win on Sunday, but between a fairytale and a tale of redemption, a betting man would put his money on the latter.
