One of the greatest dates in soccer is looming around. The UEFA Champions League Final will take place soon, with Premier League giants Manchester City and Chelsea taking on each other to fight for the 2021 European crown.
Pep Guardiola's team has had one of its best seasons under the Spanish coach, reaching the grand final of this tournament for the first time in the club's history and being seen as favorites to claim the title. However, the Blues have already proven to be a tough rival for anyone.
Thomas Tuchel has strengthened Chelsea as nobody expected, and he led them to the upcoming clash full of hope. Even though the German boss itself admitted the Citizens to be the benchmark, his boys have shown what they are capable of. Should these two finish the 90 minutes tied, how the final would be decided? Let's check it out here.
How the Champions League Final will be decided if Man City and Chelsea tie after 90 minutes
Countless European finals finished tied in regular time, leading to memorable nights full of emotions. Not only in the UCL, but the Europa League has also seen many of its finals ending level in 90 minutes, like the last one between Villarreal and Manchester United.
Like any other Champions League Final, if Manchester City and Chelsea remain tied after regular time, they would head into 30 minutes of extra time that will be split into two halves with a short intermission between them.
If there's no winner after 120 minutes, then the champions will be decided by a penalty shoot-out. Several finals were decided on penalties, being Real Madrid's dramatic win over Atletico in 2016 at San Siro the latest one.
