The upcoming Champions League final on 10 June in Istanbul will witness City, a team that is on the brink of winning the Premier League and has also secured a spot in the FA Cup final, competing against Inter Milan. This marks a significant moment for City as they strive to clinch their first-ever Champions League title.



From the very beginning, Pep Guardiola’s team demonstrated their superiority over the 14-time champions. The only thing that prevented the hosts from taking an early lead was the remarkable performance of Thibaut Courtois, who made two stunning saves to deny Erling Haaland.



City’s relentless pursuit of victory paid off as Silva scored his first goal of the night with a skillful near-post finish that left Courtois helpless.

The second goal was scored by the Portugal midfielder, who skillfully looped a header over David Alaba and successfully placed the ball into the back of the net just before the break.

The goal in question was a result of Toni Kroos’ attempt from distance hitting the bar. However, it must be noted that Real Madrid’s offensive efforts were few and far between, while Manchester City delivered a commendable performance in the first half of the match, showcasing their prowess in European football.



In the final moments of the game, Courtois once again demonstrated his exceptional goalkeeping skills by denying Haaland’s shot and pushing it onto the bar. However, City managed to secure a third goal as a result of Manuel Akanji’s flicked header from Kevin de Bruyne’s free-kick, which was unfortunately diverted into his own net by Militao.
