Manchester City v Chelsea Match Preview & Trends

Champions League Final between two English clubs In Portugal

Thomas Tuchel and Pep Guardiola are in contrasting situations as we approach the season finale on Saturday night. Chelsea of course have won the competition before but their manager has not whereas Manchester City are seeking their first European Cup but Guardiola has tasted victory in this competition before with Barcelona. City have tended to get the better of the Blues in the Premier League but Chelsea recently won the F.A Cup semi-final between the two sides.

After losing the F.A Cup Final at Wembley to Leicester City, it would be a crushing blow to Tuchel not to win in this massive fixture. The German has steadied the ship since arriving earlier in the season but has always been quick to acknowledge the work that Frank Lampard did before his arrival. A trophy to go along with their top-4 finish would represent a remarkable turnaround and justify Roman Abramovich’s decision to change managers mid-season. 

Guardiola is chasing history and his Premier League winners want to add the elusive Champions League trophy to the League Cup and Premiership to complete a unique treble. It will also be the final time we see Sergio Aguero in a City shirt. The record-breaking goalscorer, fresh from overtaking Wayne Rooney with the most Premier League goal for one single club at the weekend with his brace against Everton, will be desperate to play a part in Portugal.

Manchester City have won 78% of their away matches and have scored in each of their last 8 fixtures. City have scored in 89% of their away fixtures, have scored the opening goal in 78% of their games and were leading at halftime in 56% of their matches. Guardiola’s men City have won their last 12 away contests and are undefeated in their last 13 away games. The Cityzens have scored in each of their last 12 away matches and have scored 2 goals or more in each of their last 5 away fixtures.

There have been fewer than 3 goals scored in total in each of Chelsea’s last 7 games and they have scored before half-time in their last 4 fixtures. Chelsea have scored before half-time in their last 4 away games and have outscored their opponents in both halves in each of their last 2 games. Chelsea have scored the opening goal of the game in their last 4 away games and have scored in 76% of their away matches. Thomas Tuchel’s men are undefeated in their last 7 away matches.
