Sorry, Man City are probably gonna win.

The biggest match in club football, the Champions League final, takes place this weekend. This year it’s Man City vs. Chelsea in an all-English clash for all the marbles.  

Who’s the favourite? Based on current form, it’s hard to pick against Man City. In their last outing they ripped Everton to shreds in a 5-0 drubbing. But anything can happen in football and, since sacking Lampard and bringing in Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea have looked and played like a different team — a much better team. 

And here’s a crazy statistic: Chelsea have beaten Man City on the last four occasions. 

This should be a cracker of a final.
