3 wins left. Three more wins and Manchester City’s history will be written. Also, coach Pep Guardiola will win the treble (three crowns) in 14 years.
Manchester City, led by Guardiola, defeated Real Madrid 4-0 with Bernardo Silva’s multi-goal in the second leg of the 2022-2023 European Football Association (UEFA) Champions League semifinal held at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England on the 18th (Korean time). did.
Man City, who drew 1-1 in the first leg of the away match held at the Santiago Bernabéu in Madrid, Spain on the 10th, reached the UEFA Champions League final for the second time in his career following an entirely 2020-2021 season of 1 win and 1 draw. Manchester City will lift the UEFA Champions League trophy for the first time when they beat Inter Milan, who have risen above AC Milan.
This season for Man City is truly the best ever. There were concerns that the power might be weakened by sending Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling, Fernandinho, and Alexandre Zinchenko, who were the main players in Man City’s English Premier League (EPL) victory last season, to other teams, but Elling Hollan’s ‘dragon eyes’ Eman City became stronger.
Hollan, who came from Borussia Dortmund, scored 36 goals in the EPL alone, breaking the record for the most league goals in a season. He also scored 12 goals in the UEFA Champions League, virtually confirming the top scorer. The top scorer in the league and UEFA Champions League at the same time is likely.
Haaland is the target striker that Guardiola has longed for. Not only is he good at aerial competitions because of his height, but he also has excellent footing skills. Hollan’s offensive power maximized Manchester City’s scoring power by creating synergy with Kevin Debrawiner.
With the signing of Haaland, Guardiola’s attacking tactics have become more powerful. Man City has been behind Arsenal throughout the season, but they have surpassed Arsenal before they knew it, accumulating points one by one. Arsenal had a good run, but fell behind Man City as the number of draws increased. Manchester City will now win the EPL title on their own, even if they win only one of their remaining three matches.
Man City has a home game against Chelsea on the 22nd, so a home coronation is likely. Even if Man City cannot confirm the championship against Chelsea, it is the same as winning the championship cup because the opponents of the remaining two games are Brighton and Hove토스카지노 Albion and Brentford.
After the EPL schedule is over, Man City will go on a treble hunt in earnest. On the 3rd of next month, Manchester United will play the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium in London.
Man City is expected to confirm the EPL championship early and play the FA Cup final, so it is expected to show the best performance while giving the main players a break. On the other hand, Manchester United is in a position where they have to do their best in the remaining three games to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season as Liverpool, which is in 5th place, is chasing by one point. Circumstances, Manchester City have an advantage.
The UEFA Champions League final is a week after the FA Cup final. Inter Milan at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey.
Inter Milan are also competing fiercely for rankings and qualifying for the UEFA Champions League in Italy’s Serie A, and the Coppa Italia final against Fiorentina is ahead on the 25th. Inter Milan has nothing ahead of Manchester City in terms of physical strength because it will play the last match of Serie A against Torino on the 4th of next month and the UEFA Champions League.
Man City will achieve a historic treble with just three more wins. The first UEFA Champions League title is confirmed. Here, Guardiola, who achieved the treble with FC Barcelona in the 2008-2009 season, will achieve the treble once again by changing teams in 14 years.
In Europe, the Treble is Barcelona (2008-2009, 2014-2015), Bayern Munich (2012-2013, 2019-2020), Celtic (1966-1967), Ajax Amsterdam (1971-1972), PSV Eindhoven (1987-1988), It is a record only nine times, including Manchester United (1998-1999) and Inter Milan (2009-2010). Only seven teams have achieved the treble. Of course, there is no manager who has achieved the treble twice. Man City and Guardiola’s achievement of the record is approaching.
