Manchester City clashed heads with Inter Milan at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium earlier tonight as they looked to earn a positive result in the UEFA Champions League final. The Mancunian side made a decent start to the game but were held to a scoreless draw at the half-time break.
Rodri finally opened the goal-scoring for Man City in the 68th minute with a good finish. Pep Guardiola‘s men finished the game well and secured a narrow 1-0 win in Turkey which was enough to give them their Champions League trophy in history.
