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.

Let’s take a look at how each Manchester City player performed during the match against Inter Milan.

GK: Ederson – 7.5/10

The Brazilian keeper made a few world-class saves at the back and did enough to secure a clean sheet tonight.

CB: Manuel Akanji – 7/10

Akanji did his fair share of defending and passed the ball relatively well during the game.

CB: Ruben Dias – 8/10

He was a dominant presence in the air and made a lot of crucial, last-gasp clearances at the back.

CB: Nathan Ake – 7/10

Ake kept things solid when defending inside his half and was tidy with his passing.
