Manchester City have reached to the Champions League final for the first time in their history.

The Cityzens are set to face Chelsea in the final, which will take place on Saturday night at the Estádio do Dragão, Porto.

So ahead of the final let’s take a look what journey Pep Guardiola’s men went through to reach the desirable final.

City started the 2020/21 tournament in the Group C, alongside Porto, Olympiacos and Marseille.

After having won 5 out of their 6 played matches (1 draw), they finished first in their group with 16 points.

In the round of 16 Cityzens faced Borussia Monchengladbach, and beat them 4-0 in aggregate score.

Another Bundesliga side were waiting them, Borussia Dortmund, in the quarter-finals. City won both games with 2-1 score and progessed into the semi-finals.

4-1 aggregate win over Paris Saint-Germain secured the Sky Blues their first Champions League final in history.

After winning the EFL Cup and the Premier League title this season Pep Guardiola will look to win the desirable Champions League trophy when they face Chelsea tomorrow night.

So here is how they could line up.

Ederson will start in between the sticks, as usual, with Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias, John Stones and Kyle Walker forming the defence.

In the midfield Kevin De Bruyne will team up with Ilkay Gundogan and Rodri, while Phil Foden, Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez complete the lineup in the attack.
