The Champions League final is an all-Premier League affair after Manchester City and Chelsea booked their spots at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul.

Pep Guardiola’s men followed up their 2-1 win at Paris Saint-Germain last week with a 2-0 success on home turf, while the Blues followed suit to beat Real Madrid 3-1 on aggregate a day later.

This will be the second time in two years that two English sides will battle it out for European glory - with Liverpool beating Tottenham in the 2018-19 final - and it is City who are bet365’s overwhelming 4/9 (1.44) favourites to lift the trophy.

The blue half of Manchester have already won the Carabao Cup this season and also look set to top the Premier League, but the Champions League remains the one trophy that eludes them.

It will be a maiden final in this competition for the Citizens, who had previously only got as far as the semi-finals, and bet365 go 10/11 (1.91) that they win the final in normal time.

Guardiola’s European pedigree is already well-established with the Spaniard having won this trophy twice with Barcelona, but the last of those was in 2011 and another victory here would see him become the joint-most successful manager of all time in this competition.

Chelsea are out at 31/10 (4.10) but that in itself may prove to be a popular selection, given their positive record of two wins in the last three against this opposition - with one coming in this season's FA Cup semi-final.

Thomas Tuchel, who was also in charge of PSG last season when they reached this stage of the competition, has transformed the Blues with a strong onus on controlling possession and defensive cohesion.

It is 7/4 (2.75) that the London club lift the trophy and win their second Champions League, having famously beaten Bayern Munich in their own stadium back in 2012.

The last two finals of this tournament have both seen under 2.5 goals and a repeat of that is 8/11 (1.73), whilst both teams to score has landed in eight of the last 10 and is priced at 19/20 (1.95).
