Injury news
Man City’s medical team is largely idle ahead of the final. Kyle Walker had a minor back concern but is now fit. The lineup is expected to remain unchanged except for the goalkeeper position. Inter’s Mkhitaryan and Correa are likely to recover. Inzaghi prefers Martinez and Dzeko up front, while Dimarco will face Walker. Skriniar and de Vrij may start on the bench.

What have the managers said?
Guardiola, Man City coach: “When you reach the final of the Champions League, you have to celebrate. A final against an Italian team is not always the best gift, honestly. Inter are competitive. After this [semi-final] victory there will be a lot of compliments, but we have time to prepare mentally.”

Inzaghi, Inter coach: “For us it was a dream but we have always believed in it. I’m proud to be here. Nobody has given us anything, we deserve everything that we have achieved. And now the dream to play the final has come true. It has been an extraordinary path and winning a derby in the semi-final brought particular satisfaction.”
