Manchester City and Inter Milan face each other for the first time in the Champions League, and it’s in the final. Our sportsbook offers the best markets and Champions League
live betting odds in the UCL.
Man City: Europe’s Top Team
With the Premier League and FA Cup in the bag, Man City is looking to complete a historic continental treble by winning their first European title. Manchester City has beaten some big guns of Europe en route to the finals, like Bayern Munich in the quarterfinals and defending champions Real Madrid in the last four. They also topped a group containing Borussia Dortmund and Sevilla.
Since the Abu Dhabi United Investment Group acquired Man City in 2008, the club has been transformed from mid-table mediocrity to a global powerhouse. The success has also come at a high price. Despite a net transfer spend of a whopping $1.5bn since 2008, the club has only reached one Champions League final – in 2021 – when they lost 1-0 to Premier League rival Chelsea.
Manchester City is having a campaign to remember. Some even say if they don’t win their first-ever Champions League this year, they might not have a better chance in the future. City’s run of 11 consecutive league wins was enough to see them lift their third Premier League title in three years with three games to spare. They are capable of beating any team in Europe, and we will continue to include them in our Champions League picks and parlays.
Manchester City is again sweating on the fitness of two defenders, with Kyle Walker and Manuel Akanji missing training on Tuesday. Otherwise, the Premier League champions have a clean bill of health. Another goal for super striker Erling Haaland would represent his 13th of the 2022-23 Champions League, hardly an unlucky number, as it would see him overtake Ruud van Nistelrooy for the most single-season UCL goals for an English team.
Inter Milan: Underdog
The Italian giants have their work cut out. But they saved their best for the cup competitions and already have the Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana safely in the trophy cabinet at San Siro.
Simone Inzaghi will need his attacking wingbacks to exploit any slight weakness in the City defense if Inter is to cause an upset. He will also rely on Lautaro Martinez to continue his exemplary season and score an early goal that could shake up the City players.
An early City goal could kill off the game before it has even begun. Inter will surely give everything in Istanbul as they chase Champions League success, but if you’re betting online, you shouldn’t trust them here. Inzaghi has a few options for his starting line-up but may have to do without Henrikh Mkhitaryan if his injury doesn’t clear up in time. Nicolo Barella could get a call-up after missing out on the last few games, while Romelu Lukaku should get the nod up front.
Man City vs Inter Head-to-Head
The Sky Blues boast the best defensive record this season by conceding only five goals in 12 games. Inter is finishing the season like an express train and has looked very impressive on the European stage. A 1-0 win at Torino made it 11 wins out of their last 12 games, with the only defeat coming against champion Napoli.
They defeated city rival AC Milan comfortably home and away to reach the final. Pep Guardiola hopes to win this trophy for the third time and become only the sixth man to win it with two clubs. Inter has won this trophy three times, with the last time coming under Jose Mourinho in 2010.

Man City vs Inter Picks and Prediction
The Citizens enter this clash as heavy favorites, priced at -215 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest Champions League odds, while the goal line is set at 2½.
ManchesterCity will never have a better chance of winning the Champions League and a famous Treble. That is not to say that Inter are pushovers, but they are the weakest of the three teams standing in City’s way for their tilt at history. The others being Premier League runners-up Arsenal and FA Cup finalists Manchester United. Anything can happen in a single match. On paper, the guess is that City will win comfortably as they are simply too good everywhere on the pitch. We expect them to cover the spread and once again show their world-class quality.
