Chelsea and Manchester City will play their last game of the season in the Champions League final clash on May 29.

It’s a massive tie for the two sides, and for Chelsea, it’s the final hope for a trophy this season.

Chelsea have beaten City twice over the past month, but many have predicted that the result of this clash will favour City, despite results from recent meetings.

Michael Owen has given his Champions League final prediction, and he’s backing Manchester City to win the game 2-0.

“For the second time in three years, the UEFA Champions League final will be contested by two English clubs,” Owen told Bet Victor.

“Manchester City have finally shaken off their hoodoo of missing out at the quarter-final stage, and in some style.

“The Citizens were worthy winners over two legs against PSG in the semis, and given their all-out assault domestically, they rightfully come into this as favourites.

“However, one blot in their pursuit for a treble came against Chelsea in the FA Cup. Thomas Tuchel masterminded a 1-0 win, so there’s no doubt the Londoners will quietly fancy their chances here.

“With the league sewn up a couple of weeks ago, City have had ample time to prepare for this.

“That can only be of benefit to Pep Guardiola, and given Chelsea’s recent dip in form, it’s hard to make a case against City lifting their first Champions League trophy.

“I think Chelsea will sit in here and try to catch City on the counter, however, with Manchester City so powerful on the attack, keeping them out is the ultimate test.

“With that in mind, I’m going for City to win their first and much coveted, Champions League trophy with a 2-0 victory.”
