Bookmakers predict Manchester City's victory in the UEFA Champions League final
On June 10th at 22:00, the UEFA Champions League final for the 2022/23 season will take place at the Atatürk Stadium in Istanbul, where Manchester City will face Inter Milan. This will be the first official meeting between the two teams in official tournaments, reports Ua-Football .
This season has been very successful for Manchester City. In the English Premier League, the team consistently held the second position, but towards the end of the championship, they managed to surpass Arsenal and become the champions of England. Additionally, Guardiola's team won the FA Cup, defeating their arch-rivals Manchester United with a score of 2-1. Currently, Manchester City has a great opportunity to win their third trophy of the season.
Inter Milan finished third in the league and also won the cup in their own country, defeating Fiorentina 2-1 in the final. The team had a mixed season with several setbacks, but they have been in excellent form towards the end of the season, which works in Inter's favor.
Nevertheless, Manchester City is the undisputed favorite in the game. Ukrainian bookmakers offer odds of 1.53 for the victory of the English team (meaning that if you bet 100 UAH, you will receive 153 UAH if Manchester City wins in regular time). The odds for Inter's victory in the match are 6.90, while a draw is estimated at 4.7. As for winning the UEFA Champions League, the odds for Manchester City are 1.25, and for Inter, they are 4.50.
Bookmakers expect a moderate number of goals in this match. The coefficient for both teams to score more than 2.5 goals is 1.85, while fewer than 2.5 goals is evaluated at 2.1. Both teams, especially Manchester City, have a strong attacking potential. However, bookmakers take into account that this is a final and expect both teams to play a disciplined and cautious game. Nevertheless, bookmakers are confident that the main goal scorer for Manchester City, Erling Haaland, will shine in this match, with odds of 1.60 for him to score. This is a relatively low coefficient for betting on a specific player's goal. For comparison, among the Inter players, bookmakers have the highest expectations for Lautaro Martinez to score, but the odds for his goal are 3.7.
