Champions League Final: Vital stats for Chelsea FC and Man City

Chelsea and Manchester City’s seasons will draw to a close on Saturday night as the English rivals battle it out in the Champions League Final in Porto.

Pep Guardiola lifted the European Cup three times at Barcelona – once as a player and twice as a coach – but the trophy has eluded him since 2011.

As for Thomas Tuchel, his PSG finished as runners-up to Bayern Munich last season, and he would dearly love to go one better this time around following a whirlwind start to life at Stamford Bridge.

Here is a closer look at the vital statistics for Saturday’s showpiece event:

3 – This will be the third all-English Champions League final. Chelsea were also involved in the first, losing to Manchester United in 2008, while Liverpool beat Tottenham in 2019.

14 – It will be the 14th time an English club has won the Champions League or European Cup, second behind Spain (18).

6 – Man City would become the sixth different English winners of the competition – no other nation has more than three.

15 – First-time finalists such as City have won the Champions League or European Cup on just 15 occasions, compared to 26 defeats. The remaining 50 tournaments have been won by teams who have previously appeared in finals.

1 – Chelsea have won the tournament once, in 2012, in addition to their loss in the 2008 final.

6 – Goals in this season’s competition for Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud – only Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland and Paris St Germain’s Kylian Mbappe have scored more. Timo Werner has four for Chelsea, the same as City’s leading scorers Ferran Torres and Riyad Mahrez.

25 – Goals scored by City on their route to the final, compared to Chelsea’s 22. Both teams have conceded just four.

1 – Matches lost by the two finalists in this season’s competition.

5 – Penalties scored by Chelsea in the tournament, three of them by Werner.

390 – Record scorer Sergio Aguero is in line to make his 390th and last appearance for City. He will depart this summer as the club’s record scorer and goes into the final with 260 goals in all competitions.

19 – City and Ederson kept the most clean sheets in this season’s Premier League, second only to Lille and Mike Maignan across Europe’s ‘big five’ leagues. Chelsea were only one behind, with Edouard Mendy in place for 16 of their 18 shut-outs. Evening Standard

Brazil vs Venezuela 3-0 – Highlights Download 13 June 2021 Copa America

A year after the tournament was originally due to take place, the hosts Brazil get the tournament underway as they look to defend their trophy. They won their ninth title in 2019, and are among the favourites to retain it this time around.

Brazil are unbeaten in their last eight matches against Venezuela in all competitions (W5 D3), but two of those draws have been in the Copa America, with both finishing 0-0.

They’ve won each of their last seven games in all competitions, keeping a clean sheet in six of those. Venezuela reached the quarter-finals two years ago before being knocked out by Argentina, but they’ve struggled recently, winning just one of their last six matches (D1 L4).

Argentina vs Chile 1-1 – Highlights Download 13 June 2021 Copa America

Lionel Scaloni leads Argentina into a major tournament for the first time since replacing Jorge Sampaoli after the 2018 World Cup. As ever, the former assistant can call upon the irrepressible Lionel Messi, who will hope this is the year he finally lands his first senior international honour.

It is the fourth consecutive Copa America in which these two nations lock horns. Chile famously prevailed on penalties in the final of the 2015 and 2016 editions, but Argentina won when they faced off in the third-place play-off two years ago.

Messi receives support from Lautaro Martinez and Nicolas Gonzalez, while Nicolas Otamendi anchors the defence and Emiliano Martinez wins just his third cap in goal.

Hungary vs Portugal 0-3 – Highlights Download 14 June 2021 Euro 2021

The reigning champions Portugal get their Euro 2020 campaign underway in a tough group that also contains Germany and France. They qualified as second in their group, behind Ukraine, but come into this game unbeaten in their last six in all competitions (W4 D2).

Portugal have failed to win their opening game in the last five major tournaments (World Cup and Euros), drawing three times and losing twice. Their last opening game victory was against Turkey in Euro 2008 (2-0).

Fernando Santos names four changes to his team after their friendly win over Israel. Patricio, Semedo, Guerreiro and Pereira all start, with Rui Silva, Mendes and Neves on the bench. Ronaldo, who starts up front, becomes the first player in Euros history to appear at five different tournaments.wat

Hungary qualified through the play-offs, beating Iceland 2-1 to secure their place in the tournament. They’re unbeaten in their last 11 matches in all competitions (W7 D4), but face a difficult task of reaching the last 16 like they did five years ago.
