The manager does not live the whole team to play Manchester City does not rely on "trump cards" in the final Thanks to Romelu Lukaku
Manchester City, 2023 Champions League winners.
Pep Guardiola's first Champions League title after leaving Barcelona.
Haaland, the winner of this season's Champions League goalscorer and the assist of Tintin: is a match for Manchester City this season.
Today, Haaland did nothing, and Tintin left the game injured in 35 minutes.
It wasn't the genius of the aces, but the victory of the Manchester City team.
- Of course, thanks to Romelu Lukaku...
Guardiola is always alive at major tournaments, and today there is none: the iron 3241 starter.
However, the kick was a bit fine-tuned: the French commentator chanted: "Stones is standing in Tintin's position?" ”
Three central defenders, Rodri iron waist, Stones like a right back, Gundogan pushed in front of Rodri when attacking, parallel to Rodri when defending: so Manchester City are like 334 when attacking and 442 when defending.
But Inter's opening strategy was quite successful: the pressing line is not low, "We are not weak!" ”
Lautaro and Dzeko actively pressed, plus the pile of people in the middle, Manchester City opened the game for a long time, and the pass was not brittle. At one point, Edelson was also under pressure and passed the ball out of bounds.
Manchester City can only look for the wing, the right B takes the ball to find the inside, but he does not leave Dimarco too far, the left wing Tintin and Grealish try to find the outside, but Brozovic and the three central defenders do not give a chance, Barrera and Dumfries are also in front of Tintin.
27 min: Haaland relies on his long leg speed to shoot a positional shot that is saved: it was City's first chance in the first half.
Then it was Tintin who cut inside and shot a shot at the right rib of the international - and then he was injured.
A bad start, Tintin was injured, Haaland couldn't get up, Fo was on the pitch.
In the midst of adversity, every Manchester City player began to stand up.
Manchester City's key, Ederson, Dias, Rodri and Stones - goalkeeper, mainstay, iron waist. In the second half, they each changed:
Foden interspersed at the edge of the box, Stones and Rodri pressed to show the width, and the result was Lautaro's pressing and fighting and retreating, and the international could only rely on Dzeko as an arrow in front.
Finally Dzeko ran out of strength and Romelu Lukaku came on.
Rodri scored again forward - why should I say again? Oh yes: Playing Martin Ding's long-range shot to tie the kick was also caused by Rodri's forward insertion.
Then the protagonist of the game, began to swing towards Lukaku...
70 minutes, Romelu Lukaku disrupted the Manchester City penalty area, Di Mako hit the goal frame with a header, and the Manchester City portal was wide open; Di Marco added a header: it hit Romelu Lukaku's foot.
Foden then turned around with a brilliant pull and was saved, and Inter played correctly: Gosens was quite useful to substitute, Manchester City Stones went down and replaced Walker to feel related to him; But in the 88th minute, Romelu Lukaku snatched another point in the box and a header hit Edelson's foot.
A minute later, Romelu Lukaku rushed into the box and fired a shot – I didn't see if the ball was headed towards the goal or into the corner.
Inter Milan are tenacious, and when Ake and Akanji are basically not mistaken, they still keep making fuss around the Manchester City penalty area; In fact, just moments before the end of the game, they were still threatening Edelson: with 44% possession six hit the goal frame, many times embarrassing Edelson, the international was defeated today.
But Manchester City, with Haaland and Tintin both their aces not going well, won the final by the whole team.
Ederson's save, Diaz's toughness, Stones' impeccable before the pitch, Rodri's goal.
Guardiola only insisted on one thing: for a moment, the situation made people think, "Why not go to Alvarez and increase the enthusiasm up front?" "But he only took the initiative to change Walker in the whole game. Manchester City's fitness still outperformed the world.
He trusted the team and the team gave him back.
2023 European Champions, Manchester City: The final was not flashy, but it showed that even if they suffered accidents and an unfavorable start, they were the most complete and resilient iron army this season.
Guardiola, a world away from Barcelona, also became the king of Europe.
Six months ago, in the group stage of the World Cup, Tintin watched Lukaku next to him miss a chance, and Belgium drew with Brozovic's Croatia and went out.
Today, Brozovic watched Romelu Lukaku next to him miss a chance, the international lost to Manchester City, and Tintin won the Champions League.
Brozovic and Tintin looked at each other, and their fates were staggered.
Lukaku: Tintin, I owe you the national team and paid it off today.
