Players to Watch
Erling Haaland (Manchester City)

Haaland has scored 52 goals in 52 games for Man City. His Ballon d’Or credentials will strengthen to no end with a huge performance in a Champions League final.
Lautaro Martinez (Inter Milan)
The Argentine striker is in excellent form and currently leads Inter Milan in goals with 11. He was a member of Argentina’s World Cup-winning squad, and he will look to replicate that form in the final on Saturday night. This season, Martinez has three goals in the UEFA Champions League. He is a key player for Inter, and if he is not well-managed, he will make things difficult for the City’s defense.
