Manchester City have a huge chance to make club history in the coming days as they take on Inter Milan in the Champions League final on June 10.

On the back of winning the Premier League and FA Cup titles, City can match Manchester United’s 1999 treble win, if they get past Inter and secure a first ever Champions League title.

Pep Guardiola’s side have passed each test on the road to Istanbul and big game experience will be vital to City’s chances of success.

The bulk of Guardiola’s 2021 beaten finalists will start in Turkey, with Ilkay Gundogan starting his third Champions League final, after losing out with Borussia Dortmund in 2013.
