Chelsea will face fellows Premier League side Manchester City in the 66th European Cup final. City are in the final for the first time, while Chelsea are looking forward to their third showpiece having lifted the trophy once, in 2012.
Champions League Final will be played on Saturday 26 May, kicking off at 21:00 CET. For the third time, the CL final will take place just a few days after the UEFA Europa League final, ensuring it comes after the end of the domestic season. UEFA EURO 2020 begins on 11 June. FootballBetExpert profiles the Champions League contenders.
The final will be held at the Estádio do Dragão, home of FC Porto. The arena staged the 2019 UEFA Nations League decider and was built for UEFA EURO 2004.
The final was originally intended to take place at Istanbul’s Atatürk Olympic Stadium. However, COVID-19 restrictions meant that on 13 May 2021, UEFA decided to switch the venue.
Are supporters allowed?
The Portuguese authorities have confirmed a capacity of 33% or up to 16,500 spectators. Each of the finalist clubs had an allocation of 6,000 tickets reserved for their supporters and sales for those were conducted by the clubs directly. A further 1,700 tickets made available for the general public sold out on Tuesday 25 May 2021.
Who’s the final referee?
Antonio Miguel Mateu Lahoz, a 44-year-old Spaniard who is among the officials for UEFA EURO 2020 this summer, has been appointed referee for the final.

Another all-English Champions League final
Pep Guardiola has grown increasingly irritated by the suggestion that Man City’s success owes everything to the nearly £2 billion ($2.8bn) the Abu Dhabi United Group has invested in the club over the past 13 years.
“It’s not just about money,” the Catalan insisted again this season. “If you want to think that, then you are wrong.”
And yet, in Saturday’s Champions League final in Porto, City will take on the only side that spent more than them in last season’s summer transfer window – Chelsea, who are bankrolled by Russian-Israeli billionaire Roman Abramovich.
The favorite in the Final is Man City, which is simply because they have very strong team. However, Chelsea is in fantastic form in 2021 and they enter this game with a bit of a confidence boost after eliminating Real . Chelsea side count on experienced German coach Thomas Tuchel who has reached Champions League Final last year with PSG.
Both teams have strong attacks and gone over 2.5 total goals in previous Champions League knockout phases, while playing games with many goals the entire season. Their average in CL this season is 2.5 goals per game.
As we already mentioned, both teams have relied on their defense to reach their goals this season and to reach the Champions League final. However, Man City has also been impressive offensively in the Premier League since their matches averaged 3.03 goals per game. Chelsea has an average of 2.47 goals per game, but four of their last eight league games have gone over 2.5 total goals.
In addition to this, four of the last five games between these two teams have gone over 2.5 total goals. And while we expect this game to end in a draw, in which case 0-0 or 1-1 are more likely results than 2-2 or something even crazier, we also like the chances of this game going over 2.5 total goals. We also like the odds on this market as well.
Since we expect Man City to win and we expect to see a few goals, we decided to bet on someone from Man City to score. We decided to go with Riyad Mahrez, the team’s best goalscorer in the Champions League this season. Furthermore, with nearly 27 goals or assists in all competitions this season, Riyad Mahrez remains a very important player of this Man City team.
