Chelsea and Manchester City’s seasons will draw to a close this evening as the English rivals battle it out in the Champions League Final in Porto.

Pep Guardiola lifted the European Cup three times at Barcelona - once as a player and twice as a coach - but the trophy has eluded him since 2011.

As for Thomas Tuchel, his PSG finished as runners-up to Bayern Munich last season, and he would dearly love to go one better this time around following a whirlwind start to life at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are looking to win the trophy for a second time, in their third final.

Here is a closer look at the vital statistics for Saturday’s showpiece event...

3 | This will be the third all-English Champions League final. Chelsea were also involved in the first, losing to Manchester United in 2008, while Liverpool beat Tottenham in 2019.

14 | It will be the 14th time an English club has won the Champions League or European Cup, second behind Spain (18).

6 | Man City would become the sixth different English winners of the competition - no other nation has more than three.

15 | First-time finalists such as City have won the Champions League or European Cup on just 15 occasions, compared to 26 defeats. The remaining 50 tournaments have been won by teams who have previously appeared in finals.

1 | Chelsea have won the tournament once, in 2012, in addition to their loss in the 2008 final.

6 | Goals in this season's competition for Chelsea's Olivier Giroud - only Borussia Dortmund's Erling Haaland and Paris St Germain's Kylian Mbappe have scored more. Timo Werner has four for Chelsea, the same as City's leading scorers Ferran Torres and Riyad Mahrez.

25 | Goals scored by City on their route to the final, compared to Chelsea's 22. Both teams have conceded just four.

1 | Matches lost by the two finalists in this season's competition.

5 | Penalties scored by Chelsea in the tournament, three of them by Werner.

390 | Record scorer Sergio Aguero is in line to make his 390th and last appearance for City. He will depart this summer as the club's record scorer and goes into the final with 260 goals in all competitions.

19 | City and Ederson kept the most clean sheets in this season's Premier League, second only to Lille and Mike Maignan across Europe's 'big five' leagues. Chelsea were only one behind, with Edouard Mendy in place for 16 of their 18 shut-outs.
