Manchester City win first Champions League trophy, complete historic treble.

Rodri fired in from a Bernardo Silva cutback midway through the second half at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium to decide a game in which City were knocked out of their usual rhythm.

During Pep Guardiola’s reign, they have won five league titles in six years, becoming only the fifth team in English football to win three in a row. They have won the domestic treble, the first English side to do so. They won the Carabao Cup four years running, two FA Cups and, in Istanbul, the club’s first Champions League.

Inter Milan, cup specialists under Simone Inzaghi, came into the game as underdogs but managed to keep City at a distance in the opening 45 minutes. Twelve years after last lifting the trophy with Barcelona, meanwhile, Guardiola joins an elite club of coaches to have won the Champions League three times.
