A tight and tense 90-minutes expected at the Etihad

Man City progressed through to the Champions League final on Tuesday night following a 2-0 win over PSG at the Etihad which culminated in a 4-1 aggregate victory. Chelsea could join Man City in the final if they can manage to get past Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge, a tie which is very finely balanced at 1-1. The hosts will wrap up the Premier League title with a win against Chelsea this weekend but will have to do so without defender John Stones who is suspended. Man City have looked very strong at the back in recent weeks, keeping three clean sheets in their last five outings and with the hosts having a more potent attacking threat than their guests, a win and a title ceremony could well be on the cards.

Chelsea ran out 2-0 winners against local rivals Fulham in their last Premier League game and look like the most likely candidates to claim one of the four Champions League places this season. Before Tuchel's men can focus on this weekend's game against Man City they have a Champions League semi-final 2nd leg to negotiate, and that extra day of rest for Guardiola's men could prove vital this weekend. The visitors could be without Rudiger and Kovacic on Saturday but both will face late fitness tests. Chelsea are so strong at the back and don't tend to score a lot of goals, so you can see why we're expecting such a tight and tense match in Manchester.
