What have the managers said?
Pep Guardiola is through to his fourth Champions League Final, it's a competition he was won twice with Barcelona but has yet to taste success with Man City, who lost 1-0 to Chelsea in 2021.
After leading his side through to their second Final in three seasons, Guardiola said in his press conference:
"This is one of the highest [results of my career], considering the opponent, Real Madrid, in the semi-final of the Champions League. We had to perform well, and we did it, especially in the first half. It was really, really good."
Guardiola will lock horns with Inter Milan manager Simone Inzaghi who will be looking to win the Champions League for the first time in his career.
"I was asked 19 months ago to reach the Champions League Round of 16, which the club hadn’t managed it since 2011," he told Sport Mediaset after beating AC Milan in the semi-finals.
"I thought last season’s Champions League run was very good, this one even better. Nobody gave us anything for free, we faced strong opponents and earned our place in the final."
