Champions League Final 2020/21

It's the Champions League final tonight and - barring a hiccup from Virgin Media (long story) - I am planning to watch it live.

The game will see two British teams - Chelsea and Manchester City - compete at Estadio do Dragao in Portugal; the home of FC Porto.

Both Chelsea and Manchester City have been teams I have enjoyed betting on over the years. I have no allegiance to either side, but I think I'll have to go with City. 

This will be the last time Sergio Aguero will don a Manchester City kit. He has been such a great player for them over seven years that it kind of seems fitting for him to raise the trophy that he hasn't won at the club during his tenure.

So, yes - even though I like Thomas Tuchel as a manager and therefore have a reason to root for Chelsea - I am going to side with Manchester City for the Aguero story.

With that said, I cannot shake off the feeling that the win will come in extra time. I have visions of it being 2-2 at the final whistle of regulated time and then City will score the winner before there is a need for penalties.

We'll see how that prophecy goes....
