Two great goals from Gundogan give the title to the Premier champion one week before the Champions League final
MADRID, 3 Jun. (EUROPA PRESS) –
Manchester City won the FA Cup this Saturday by beating Manchester United (2-1) in the final held at Wembley, marked by two goals from Gundogan at the start of each half, the second title for the Premier League champion and with the look at the Champions League.
Pep Guardiola’s men added the sixth FA Cup, the oldest tournament in the world, to the club’s record, the second with the Spanish coach, to maintain their option of a treble last seen in 1999, when the ‘red devils achieved it ‘ precisely. Ten Hag’s team didn’t come close to spoiling that feat for the neighbor.
The Premier champion hit with his captain, Ilkay Gündogan, 12 seconds from the end, hunting a ball in the air to send it close to the squad from the front. An anthological goal in a final that left the United players very touched. All in all, the game was leveled and, in an isolated play from a hand by Grealish, it was even more leveled with Bruno Fernandes’ 1-1 penalty.
After the restart, City took possession of the ball and patiently, hovering around the rival area, made it 2-1, in a free kick set by De Bruyne, who this time hunted with the left-footed Gundogan, but slipping through everyone in the area . The entry of Alejandro Garnacho brought some joy to the United attack, but it did not stop City from continuing in search of the best season in their history.
On June 10, at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Guardiola’s men, the executioners of Real Madrid in the semifinals, will seek the triplet in the Champions League final, with the option of winning their first ‘Champions’, against Inter de Milan.
