Manchester City have won the Champions League and completed an historic treble. Rodri scored the only goal in a 1-0 win over Inter in Istanbul on Saturday.

City lost Kevin De Bruyne to injury before half-time and it was just moments after the Belgian had created the first half’s best opportunity for Erling Haaland. But the Norwegian’s efforts were saved by André Onana.

The first opening after the break came for Lautaro Martínez, who had a tight angle closed down by Ederson. Man City eventually found the opener in the 68th minute. It felt as though the game was edging towards extra time but Rodri struck superbly from just inside the area to send the Citizens on their way to a first-ever Champions League title and a historic treble.

Federico Di Marco hit the bar with a header for Inter in response moments later. And he had his rebound blocked by team-mate Romelu Lukaku before Foden was denied by André Onana as he had a chance to double City’s advantage. Lukaku had a huge chance to level the score in the 89th minute but his header from point-blank range was somehow saved by Ederson as it struck the Brazilian’s standing leg.

Five additional minutes passed with Ederson saving a late header from a corner to see City seal a famous win and the treble. Thus they became just the second English club to win the league title, Champions League and FA Cup in a single campaign.

This followed Man City rivals Manchester United who achieved the same feat back in 1999. City steamed towards the achievement after beating United in the FA Cup final last weekend.

Pep Guardiola also became the first manager in history to win the treble with two different clubs. He ends a 12-year wait to win the trophy he last lifted as Barcelona boss back in 2011. It’s been a stunning performance from Pep Guardiola’s side in Europe this season. City remained unbeaten on their route to glory in the Atatürk Olympic Stadium.
