Chelsea defeated Manchester City 1-0 in Porto to win their second Champions League trophy in a decade.


This season, the English rivals met for the third time, and it was Thomas Tuchel's side that emerged victorious.

Despite being the odds-on favorites, Chelsea had a couple of chances early on, including one through Timo Werner, which he failed to convert.

Just before halftime, though, a fantastic ball from Mason Mount found Kai Havertz, who slipped past Ederson and tapped into an open net.

Moments later, Phil Foden had a chance to equalize before Antonio Rudiger made a spectacular tackle.


After jumping with Foden for a header late in the first half, Thiago Silva was taken off with an injury.

City did not have a conventional striker on the field, nor did they have a holding midfielder.

Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero, as well as Fernandinho and Rodri, all started on the bench.

Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan were favoured, and Pep Guardiola's side struggled.

De Bruyne, who was captain for the evening, had his night cut short when he was clattered by Rudiger.

The Belgian international was taken from the pitch in tears, and he appeared to suffer a black eye.

In terms of shots on target, City was limited, but Chelsea defended admirably throughout.

They claimed a penalty after the ball looked to strike Reece James' arm, but VAR ruled it was insufficient.


Chelsea's Christian Pulisic had a wonderful chance to add a second on the counter, but he skewed his shot just wide.

Jesus and Aguero both came on as a result of City's relentless pressing, but the Blues' backline held firm.

In August, Chelsea will face Villarreal in the UEFA Super Cup.
