Man City vs Inter Prediction: Strengths and Weaknesses

Man City

  • Man City’s offensive panel has been the most lethal one in both Premier League and European Cup. Erling Haaland has made the attack look invincible against any mighty defensive side. Moreover, the problems at left-back which troubled the Citizens now seem solved. They have the perfect balance in each department.
  • There is hardly any weakness for a team that went into winning the Premier League three times in a row. However, Man City’s away performances have not been that dominating compared to Etihad. Guardiola is very smart with his tactics and his rotation policy is always spot-on but it backfired in some big matches in the initial half of the season. The team combination for the Finals after a long campaign needs to be accurate.


  • Inter has been rock solid in their defense this season. The attack is well led by Lautaro Martinez. But the status of being the underdogs can turn out to be the biggest strength for the Italian club in the mega clash against Man City. Inzagh’s side has played much above expectations in the Champions League. They can just try to give their best against the Citizens in Istanbul without any pressure.
  • Inconsistency has been a concern for Inter this season. Despite their impressive campaign in the UCL, they have failed to consistently win matches in the Serie A. In addition to that, the attack sometimes looks too dependent on Martinez which makes it easy for the defenders of the opposition side.

Moreover, handing a crushing defeat to the defending champions, Real Madrid in the Champions League Semifinal round proves that City is determined to create history by winning the first-ever UCL title. It will add another feather to the cap of Pep Guardiola. On the other hand, Inter Milan will be well aware of the current rhythm and strength of the Citizens. They need to pull off something special to emerge victorious in the mega clash at Istanbul.

Almost all the betting platforms are suggesting a win for Man City in the Final. We predict the scoreline to be 3-0 in favor of City.
