Manchester City finally lifted the Champions League trophy after beating Inter Milan 1-0 in Istanbul, completing a historic Treble in the process.
The Premier League and FA Cup champions matched Manchester United’s achievement in 1999 as they became the second English club to win three major trophies in one season, thanks to Rodri’s decisive goal in the 68th minute.
It was a tense and tough final, with City losing Kevin De Bruyne to injury in the first half and Inter defending superbly throughout. But City’s fans inside Ataturk Stadium did not mind as they witnessed the most glorious night – and season – in their club’s history.
And for Pep Guardiola, it confirmed his place among the managerial legends as he won his third Champions League title, adding to the two he claimed with Barcelona, the last one in 2011.
City had to work hard for their victory and were lucky not to concede when Federico Dimarco’s header hit the bar and Ederson made a brilliant save to deny Romelu Lukaku. But in the end, all that mattered was the result.
Now Guardiola and his players can enjoy their historic feat.
