Here's how to watch Man City vs Chelsea live in Australia, the Champions League final time in Australia and New Zealand and our Manchester City vs Chelsea prediction.
Chelsea will hope to replicate their 2012 heroics when they face off against Manchester City in the Champions League final. The Blues qualified for the grand stage with a semi-final win over Real Madrid, with Thomas Tuchel's side serving as one of the dark horses in the competition. Chelsea have been to the UCL final twice previously, losing out to Man United on penalties in 2008, before claiming a historic win over Bayern Munich in 2012.
As for Manchester City, this will be their first major European competition final. Pep Guardiola's side have been one of the favourites since the start of the tournament, and have lived up to the tag, beating the likes of Paris Saint-Germain to reach the finale. Guardiola will hope to clinch the title and see Man City win the treble, having already lifted the Carabao Cup and the Premier League this season. The Premier League champions however have lost their last two meetings against Chelsea, with the latest ending their hopes of an unprecedented quadruple. Nonetheless, Man City will be favourites and are likely to clinch a win on Saturday night.
