UCL PREVIEW: Manchester City v Inter Milan Team News, Predicted Lineups and Where to Watch

Manchester City and Internazionale Milano are set to meet at Istanbul’s Atatürk Olympic Stadium on Saturday, as both sides look to compete for the UEFA Champions League trophy. Pep Guardiola’s side are searching for their maiden UCL win, having lost out against Chelsea two years ago.

Inter Milan have won this tournament thrice before, with their most recent win coming in 2010. Simone Inzaghi will look to end the club’s thirteen-year wait for the trophy, but Pep Guardiola’s sensational City side stand in his way.

The Atatürk Olympic Stadium has played host to the UEFA Champions League Final before, as Liverpool produced a shock comeback to defeat AC Milan in 2005. Should the English side prevail this time round, Manchester City will complete a historic treble – having already lifted the Premier League and the FA Cup this season.

Team News

For Manchester City, Kyle Walker is the only injury doubt. The Englishman travelled with the squad to Istanbul, and we’d expect him to start on Saturday – even if he can’t last for ninety minutes.

It’s not quite as pretty of a picture for Inter Milan. Joaquin Correa remains a doubt for the Italian side, though they’ll be bolstered by the returns of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Milan Skriniar.

Predicted Lineups

Manchester City: Ederson; Akanji, Dias, Walker; Rodri, Stones; Grealish, Gundogan, De Bruyne, B. Silva; Haaland

Internazionale Milano: Onana; Bastoni, Acerbi, Skriniar; Dimarco, Brozovic, Calhanoglu, Barella, Dumfries; Dzeko, Martinez

Where can I watch?

Kickoff at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium is at 8pm UK time on Saturday, 10 June 2023. The game will be shown live on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport Ultimate, with coverage starting at 6pm on both channels. It’ll also be shown for free on BT Sport’s YouTube channel.
