Mason Mount’s inch-perfect assist stunned domestic double-winners City at the Estadio do Dragao, as Chelsea claimed their second Champions League title to etch boss Thomas Tuchel‘s name into the Stamford Bridge annals.
Kevin De Bruyne suffered a facial injury on a wretched night for the stellar Belgium star, who will be an immediate injury doubt for the European Championships. Pep Guardiola fielded a surprise pivotless midfield in a bid to catch out Tuchel and the Blues, but the move backfired and City paid the toughest price.
Man City vs Chelsea highlight
GOAL! Man City 0-1 Chelsea | Kai Havertz, 41 mins
Man City’s defence has been sensational this season, but they go AWOL here as Havertz breaks through acres of space in the middle onto a glorious through-ball from Mount inside Chelsea’s half.
Both Guardiola and Tuchel are looking to lift the European Cup for the first time at their respective clubs: Pep won the trophy three times at Barcelona – once as a player and twice as a coach – but it eluded him at Bayern Munich, and remains the ultimate aim of City.
