Manchester City defeated Inter Milan 1-0 in the Champions League final on Saturday night to earn a spot in the UEFA Super Cup.
In the 68th minute, Rodri curled home the decisive winner in Istanbul from just inside the box. Ederson was crucial for City in ensuring that they won the European championship for the first time.
The Brazilian first made a spectacular close-range save to block Romelu Lukaku’s header before putting his fingertips on the ball to secure City’s triumph in stoppage time. After winning the Premier League and FA Cup earlier in a spectacular season, the Blues’ victory in the Champions League also guaranteed them the Triple.
The fact that City has qualified for the European Super Cup, which matches the winners of the Europa League and the Champions League early in the season, may have been overlooked in yesterday night’s festivities. You can get all the information you need about the game on MEN Sport.
