Manchester City clinched an historic treble in Istanbul with a 1-0 win over Inter Milan.

Match Report

Inter Milan started the game well against City. The Italians were up for it and were challenging Manchester City to every tackle, while cutting the space needed to operate in the middle.

Inter Milan had a few half chances of their own in the first half, but the best chance of the game went to City’s Erling Haaland, who could not finish past Andre Onana. Kevin De Bruyne also had to be substituted out because of a knock he picked up.

The second half yielded more chances for Inter Milan. Manuel Akanji gifted Martinez the ball, but the Argentine selfishly tried to find the goal from a difficult angle instead of finding his teammates inside the box.
