Julián Álvarez scored for Manchester City as they will play Inter in the Champions League final.
Álvarez did just like his Argentine number 9 team mate Lautaro Martinez a day earlier, that is to say score in the semi finals of the Champions League. He was brought on as a substitute with less than a minute in regular time as City were leading 3-0 and would score to make it 4-0 for City.
It will be a battle of the Argentine number 9’s in the Champions League final and we are guaranteed not only an Argentine to lift the trophy but an Argentine World Cup winner. For the first time since Willy Caballero did it in 2021 with Chelsea, an Argentine will win the Champions League.
For Inter, it’s Lautaro Martinez, Joaquín Correa and Valentín Carboni. In Carboni’s case, he is presently with the Argentina U20 team for the U20 World Cup. Manchester City have Julián Álvarez and Máximo Perrone with Perrone also with the Argentina U20 team.
The final will take place on June 10 in Istanbul.
