Inter Milan vs. Manchester City
Inter Milan had perhaps the easier route to the final, defeating Benfica in the quarterfinal before dispatching Serie A rival AC Milan in the semifinals. Lautaro Martinez has led the team offensively this season, though Inter has not been nearly as dominant in its home league in Italy, where it currently sits in third place. Inter has been to four previous Champions League final matches, winning all but one. Its last Champions League title came in 2010.
Manchester City has been a force all season in both the Champions League and back home in the English Premier League, where it has this year’s title all but wrapped up. Erling Haaland set a single-season scoring record in the EPL this season and also leads the Champions League in goals. Man City hasn’t lost a match in any competition since February. After playing to a 1-1 draw in the first leg of the semifinals against longtime Champions League powerhouse Real Madrid, Man City trounced the Spanish side at home in the second, running away with a 4-0 victory. Despite its success in other competitions in recent years, the team has yet to win a Champions League title.

Types of Champions League bets
For each match in the Champions League, sportsbooks will offer odds on the moneyline, spread and total goals. These tend to be the most popular options with sports bettors.
The moneyline simply refers to which team will win the match. Betting options will be moneyline odds on both teams as well as on the match ending in a draw. The Champions League Final is the only match that includes the option for an extra period or penalty kick shootout to decide a winner. Even there, a tie score at the end of regulation counts as a draw by most sportsbooks’ rules.
The spread refers to the final goal differential between the two teams. If a team is a -1.5 favorite on the spread, that means a bet on that team would only be successful if the team wins by two goals or more. If the spread is +1.5, that means a bet on that team would win if the team loses by only one goal or wins by any margin.
Total goals refers to the combined total score in a match. If the final score is 4-2, regardless of which team wins, the total would be six, for example. Most sportsbooks also offer other options, such as bets on whether both teams will score, which side will lead at halftime and/or full time, and more.
