Manchester City, Chelsea to square off in Champions League final in Istanbul

Baku, May 6, AZERTAC

Chelsea will meet Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League final after a 3-1 win on aggregate over Real Madrid on Wednesday, according to Anadolu Agency.

Goals from Timo Werner and Mason Mount secured a 2-0 victory for the hosts to eliminate 13-time Champions League winner Real Madrid in the semifinal at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea will play their first final since 2012 as Manchester City reached their first final after eliminating Paris Saint-Germain 4–1 on aggregate.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel became the first manager in the history of the Champions League and European Cup to move to the final in two successive seasons with different clubs.

Last season, Tuchel guided Paris Saint-Germain to qualify for the final, but his team lost to Bayern Munich 1-0 in Lisbon.
