Inter are one of the most decorated clubs in Italy having won the Serie A 19 times. The Nerazzuri have also sealed their place in the 2022-23 Champions League final for the first time after 13 years and are set to lock horns with Manchester City at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul.

It has been an incredible journey in Europe for Simeone Inzaghi's men as they made their way through to the knockout rounds, despite being placed in the 'Group of Death' alongside Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Viktoria Plzen. They remained unbeaten in four matchdays out of six and triumphed over Barcelona at San Siro before holding the Spanish champions to a 3-3 draw at Camp Nou to progress to the round of 16 at their expense.

In the knockout stage, Inter got the better of Porto, Benfica and bitter rivals AC Milan to set up a summit clash with Pep Guardiola's troops. Lautaro Martinez took the plaudits home after he scored the winner in the second leg of the semi-final taking his tally to eight in 13 appearances against Milan.
