Pep Gurdiola’s men won courtesy of a Rodri strike in the 68th minute. Although City were not at their blistering best, the goal was just enough to win them the coveted trophy.

Rodri was the match winner for Manchester City

After losing Kevin De Bruyne to an injury in the first half, City looked less likely to carry the day against a well-organised Inter but Rodri had the final say with his second goal of the competition.

The Cityzens emulated Manchester United’s iconic class of 1999 as they won the Premier League, FA Cup and the Champions League, which Guardiola last won in 2011 at Barcelona.
