Chelsea or Man City? Wesley Sneijder makes Champions League final prediction

Wesley Sneijder believes Thomas Tuchel’s ‘strong’ Chelsea side will get the better of Manchester City in the Champions League final.

The Blues have already beaten City twice under Tuchel this season – in the FA Cup semi-final in April and then in the Premier League a month later.

Saturday’s showpiece in Gdansk has plenty at stake for both bosses, with Tuchel looking for a maiden Champions League trophy as a manager and Guardiola hoping to win the competition for the first time at City.

And former Netherlands international Sneijder – who won the Champions League with Inter Milan in 2010 – has tipped Chelsea to emerge victorious in Porto.

‘Yes, they are the two best clubs,’ Sneijder told MailOnline.

‘For me, Chelsea wins.

‘They are a strong team with [Thomas] Tuchel and they have a great coach: they have already beaten Manchester City and for me they are favorites. 

‘I have seen Chelsea play many times and have pride and strength. I am happy that these two teams are on top of Europe right now.’

When asked whether Chelsea have a psychological advantage over City after beating them twice recently, Tuchel said: ‘I don’t know if it’s an advantage but we know we beat Man City in two games. In a final, anything can happen in all directions.

‘Luck is a huge part, the mental approach – who can handle the pressure? The little details and adapting to what happens is very important. It helped us a lot to bond, grow and have self-confidence.

‘Man City are the benchmark in Europe and this league. We are the guys who want to hunt them and close the gap. We want to challenge them and it’s what we will do in Porto.’
