Champions League: Chelsea beat Manchester City 1-0 in Final

Champions League

Chelsea defeated English rival Manchester City, 1-0, in Porto, Portugal, to triumph in the Champions League final Saturday, winning the European competition for the first time since 2012.

The underdog went ahead shortly before the break on a brilliant pass from Mason Mount to Kai Havertz, who got behind the City defense and beat goalkeeper Ederson to score his first Champions League goal.

Manchester City, which secured the Premier League crown two weeks ago, was favored to win the competition for the first time in club history, despite losing to Chelsea twice in the past two months. Coach Thomas Tuchel had revitalized Chelsea since he joined the club in January, leading it to a top-four Premier League finish.
