On May 29, Chelsea and Manchester City will meet to do battle in the final of the 2020-2021 Champions League. If the formation coached by Pep Guardiola acts as favorites on paper, the Blues probably have a psychological advantage due to their recent victories against the Skyblues, in the semi-finals of the FA Cup (1-0, April 17) and in Premier League (2-1, at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday). In a press conference after the success of Chelsea having delayed the coronation of Man City, Thomas Tuchel showed his confidence for the final of the C1 between the two English clubs.
“I said before (the match at Manchester City, Editor’s note) that it wouldn’t change too much, whatever the outcome of this match. I’ll stick with that, but it’s surely not a downside for us to have this experience, in such a short time, of beating them twice. We know very well that if you play a final it’s very special and you fight for every inch and every advantage that can make you win the game. But, yes, it gives us the real conviction that we can do it because we have already done it. We will try to keep the feeling and the momentum for our arrival in Istanbul, because we will arrive with a clear goal and a clear goal to win. The best way to play a final is to have confidence in yourself and I think we can keep that feeling after our two games against them ”, thus released the German technician, in remarks relayed by The Independent.
