Porto: Chelsea beat Manchester City 1-0 in a Champions League clash with English clubs. Chelsea won the Champions League with a goal in the first half, keeping City at bay. Kai Howard scored the winning goal in the 42nd minute. Chelsea have won the title for the first time since 2012.
City coach Pep Guardiola’s experiment was a setback for the team. The midfield was dismantled and the attack was prioritized. But as Chelsea’s defense worked like an oiled machine, the forward line was sweating and the midfield was weak. Chelsea took advantage of this opportunity to dominate the game.
Guardiola has sacked midfielders Fernando and Rodrigo. At the same time, De Bruyne became more and more exhausted with the injury.
The trophy is the sweet revenge of Chelsea coach Thomas Toohal. Tuhel, who coached PSG last season, led the team to the final but lost to Bayern Munich. This time around, Pep Guardiola, a strategist, lost in front of Toohal’s tactics, which closed all loopholes. The last laugh belonged to Toohal.
