Player Ratings: Inter Milan vs Manchester City, Champions League Final

Inter Milan vs Manchester City

Inter Milan faced off against Manchester City in the Champions League final. Despite a valiant effort, Inter fell to City with a 1-0 scoreline, but not without leaving a lasting impression.

Manchester City

Ederson – 7.9: Erratic in the first half but made up for it in the second with some important stops.

Akanji – 7.2: Nearly let Martinez in with a shocking leave but then played the key ball for the goal.

Dias – 7.7: Led by example at the back, letting nothing past him. The best player after Stones.

Ake – 6.9: Showed why he started, a cool head happy to get physical at the back and comfortable supporting Grealish.

Rodri – 7.9: His performance was about a 4/10 but scoring the winner in the Champions League final deserves some serious clout.

Stones – 7.2: Sometimes an individual performance feels completely removed from team and game, and Stones was outstanding where everything around him wasn’t.

Gundogan – 7.3: Kept trying to encourage the team and made some meaty challenges but couldn’t support the attack.

De Bruyne – 5.9: It is horrible luck to suffer injury in another Champions League final, but he really struggled before he came off.

Bernardo – 7.3: Did well for the goal and worked well with Stones on the right.

Grealish – 6.9: Won some fouls holding up the ball but otherwise had a quiet night.

Haaland – 6.3: Helped out in his own box to defence City’s lead but could have been more clinical at the other end.


Foden (for De Bruyne, 36) – 6.9: Made a difference when he came on and could have scored a second.

Walker (for Stones, 82) – Not rated due to limited time on the pitch.

Inter Milan

Andre Onana – 7.5: The goalkeeper was a standout player, making multiple saves and keeping the team in the game.

Alessandro Bastoni – 7.8: Bastoni put on a magnificent performance, dominating aerial challenges and silencing City’s right-wing.

Francesco Acerbi – 7: The towering centre-back had a tough time defending against Haaland in the early stages, but rebounded effectively in the second half.

Matteo Darmian – 6.5: As the third centre-back, Darmian had a quietly decent showing, winning his fair share of aerial challenges.

Federico Dimarco – 7: Dimarco was the most influential Inter player on offense in the first half, pushing the ball high up the wing and creating several chances.

Denzel Dumfries – 4: Dumfries struggled to accomplish much when he was on the ball and failed to provide the service that the Nerazzurri forwards desperately needed.

Marcelo Brozovic – 5.5: The communication between Brozovic and his centre-backs seemed to be lacking, and City nearly exposed this flaw with a few uncontested shots from outside the box.

Hakan Calhanoglu – 5: Calhanoglu’s service, normally outstanding, was rather poor. The Turk made very few plays for his side and lacked his typical energy and distribution when on the ball.

Nicolo Barella – 5: It was quite a disappointing performance from the midfielder. He made very few contributions to Inter’s counter-attacking forays, and he committed a number of poor fouls.

Edin Dzeko – 4.5: Though he was solid in the air, Dzeko struggled to find the ball throughout the match. The striker was simply not active enough in build-up play.

Lautaro Martinez – 6: The striker put in the effort, making plays in every zone of the pitch, but he ultimately suffered from terrible service and build-up play from the Inter midfield.


Romelu Lukaku – 4: The Belgian took the pitch to give Inter a quicker option on the counter. However, the striker wasted two key chances to equalize.
