PORTO, Portugal: Chelsea won the Champions League for the second time after Kai Havertz scored the lone goal in a 1-0 win over Manchester City.
The victory shattered City manager Pep Guardiola’s dream of lifting the trophy for the third time in his career.
Havertz beat Ederson to break the deadlock three minutes before the final break at the Estadio do Dragao.
Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea maintained that advantage until the end of the game which saw City lose captain Kevin De Bruyne to injury.
The London club finished fourth in the Premier League, 19 points behind champions City, and their third win over Guardiola’s side in six weeks.
Chelsea shattered City’s dream of winning a domestic treble when they eliminated them in the FA Cup semi -finals and postponed the league title with a win in Manchester.
Now in Porto, Chelsea have once again denied City a chance to lift the Champions League trophy for the first time.
“It was a very intense fight. Today we are determined to win it. We want to be their obstacle.
“We worked hard for this. We overcame tough moments and had an amazing attitude in defending,” Tuchel said.
