Manchester City are favourites to win the UEFA Champions League of 2021, but Chelsea will have a fair shot, as well. Check out our betting tips and UCL predictions about what could happen in the final here!
Champions League Final Final 20/21 Preview
The 20/21 Final of the UCL will feature two of the English Premier League biggest sides, as Manchester City and Chelsea get set to meet at the Estádio do Dragão on Saturday 29th May.
Of course, both football teams will already know each other really well due to their continued meetings in the English Premier League, however the UCL will present each side with a different challenge.
Road To The UCL Final 20/21
Both teams have had to play incredibly well to reach the 20/21 UEFA Champions League final, with each of them having to see off challenging competition throughout the competition.
Pep Guardiola’s side managed to qualify from a group that contained FC Porto, Olympiacos Piraeus and Olympique de Marseille rather comfortably, whilst their knock-out phases included matches against Borussia Mönchengladbach, Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain.
Chelsea managed to get through their group in first place under the management of Frank Lampard, as they managed to overcome Sevilla, FC Krasnodar and Stade Rennais before Thomas Tuchel took charge and got them past Atlético Madrid, FC Porto and Real Madrid, convincingly.
Champions League Final 2021 Betting Tips
Of course, the 20/21 UCL Final will be the very first time that Manchester City have been able to reach the showpiece, although the English Premier League champions will be heavily favoured by many to lift the title at the Estádio do Dragão on Saturday 29 May.
The Citizens have a squad that is full of superstars, including a departing Sergio Aguero, whilst they have a manager in Pep Guardiola that has experience of winning the UEFA Champions League, as he has won it with FC Barcelona twice as their manager.
Champions League Final 2021 Winner Predictions
Indeed, with the way their form has been, our sports betting specialists main prediction for the UEFA Champions League final of 20/21 is that Manchester City will defeat Chelsea inside the 90 minutes that are to be played, although they predict that the scoreline will be rather tight.
However, one other Champions League Final 20/21 betting predictions that should be taken into consideration is that Chelsea have been able to get the better of Manchester City on a number of occasions already during Tuchel’s reign of the Stamford Bridge club.
Despite the Blues having been poor in their last two outings, including an FA Cup Final defeat, they have shown they can perform and beat Guardiola’s side in recent performances.
The German manager – who reached the UCL Final last season with PSG alongside Thiago Silva – witnessed his Chelsea side defeat Man City in the FA Cup semi-final in April before beating them in the Premier League back at the beginning of the month.
Even though they have been performing very well, our Champions League Final 20/21 Predictions writers don’t think Chelsea can come out victorious and claim their second UEFA Champions League title.
Players To Watch In The UCL Final 20/21
It can be hard to try and predict which players both Pep Guardiola and Thomas Tuchel may look to use, as both have the tendency to make an incredible number of changes to their squads with each match that takes place.
Names such as Mason Mount and Phil Foden may likely be involved, whilst Thiago Silva and his manager will want to go one better than last season’s defeat with PSG but still out of our Champions League Final 20/21 Predictions to win man of the match.
It will be Sergio Aguero’s last game for the club, so whether he gets the nod is debatable, especially as Guardiola appears to like to play without a recognised striker.
Regardless, the UEFA Champion League Final 20/21 is set up to provide a top encounter and one that many WettenTips readers will hope is profitable for them!
