After being acquired by the capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in 2008, Man City has established itself as a strong player by winning six championships in the Premier League (EPL), but it has hardly been able to stand on the top in the UCL stage.

The same was true even after appointing coach Pep Guardiola, who commanded FC Barcelona (Spain) to win the UCL twice, as the command tower in 2016.

In particular, it became smaller when meeting Real Madrid, who showed an exceptionally strong appearance in UCL.There were only two experiences of kneeling against Real Madrid in the semifinals, but this time, the ‘jinx’ was clearly erased.

It was only once so far that an EPL club achieved a treble including winning the UCL.Manchester United (Man United) in the 1988-1999 season led by Alex Ferguson is the first and last.

Real Madrid, which has stopped trying to win the UCL for the 15th time in its career, has to be content with collecting one Copa del Rey (King’s Cup) trophy this season.La Liga is won by FC Barcelona.
