Kylian Mbappe has revealed his prediction for Saturday's UEFA Champions League final between Manchester City and Inter Milan.

Man City are within reach of achieving a treble after winning the Premier League and FA Cup trophies.

However, they come face-to-face with three-time European champions, Inter Milan, who are also aiming to achieve a cup treble following their triumph in the Coppa Italia and the Italian Supercup.

City, who are yet to break the Champions League ceiling despite banging on the glass for some time now, reached the final in swashbuckling fashion after eliminating giants, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid in the quarterfinal and semi-final stages, respectively.

On the flip side, the Nerazzurri have shrewdly gone about their business in seeking European glory for a fourth time, after bundling out surprise package, Benfica (quarter-final) and neighbours, AC Milan (semi-final) from the competition, Khelnow reports.

When asked who he thinks would emerge champions in Saturday's final at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium, Mbappe threw his weight behind the English side.

“It’s going to be a great game. I am going to watch it,” Mbappe said, as quoted by the Sun. “I think Man City are going to win!”

Guardiola warns City against complacency

Sports Brief also reported on Pep Guardiola cautioning his Man City stars against allowing confidence to become arrogance, as they aim for the historic treble ahead of the UCL final against Inter Milan.

The Spanish manager's men are only one victory away from becoming the second side in history to win the English Premier League, the UEFA Champions League, and the FA Cup in the same season.

However, Guardiola has insisted that Man City's stunning form over the past four months will count for nothing when it comes to getting the job done at the Ataturk Stadium in Turkey against the Italians.
