Champions League preview
And then there were two. The teams for the Champions League final are set. Manchester City will face Inter Milan at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey, on Saturday, June 10, 2023 at 8pm BST / 3pm EST.
For the Sky Blues, a win would be a very first and oh-so-sought-after European Cup triumph. For the Nerazzurri, it's the chance of a fourth crown as the best club on the continent with previous wins coming in their back-to-back successes in 1963/64 and 1964/5 under Helenio Herrera, and their more recent success as part of the Jose Mourinho treble in 2009/10 which included a famous semi-final victory over Pep Guardiola's 'unbeatable' Barcelona.
It's hard to know if anything gives Guardiola nightmares but this might be as close as it gets on the subject of football. Surely he couldn't lose to Inter twice in the competition with his teams as overwhelming favorites?
And favorites they are after City's humbling of the mighty Real Madrid in their second leg semi at the Etihad. They made a mockery of what most had seen as a finely-poised tie after the 1-1 score at the Bernabeu. What followed as an embarrassment of a first half for Madrid fans with their team barely on the ball for 45 minutes, let alone in the attack.
The Inter players had said, ahead of that semi, that they more fear a final with Real. Surely they won't be thinking the same after that performance.
The Champions League final will follow the same usual coverage as for the rest of the games this season, as outlined above. However, BT Sport has put a free live stream of the game on YouTube for all to watch in previous years. A departure from that tradition seems unlikely.

How to watch Champions League football from outside your country
We've set out how you can live stream Champions League football in a number of countries around the world. However, if you're away travelling, you probably won't be able to watch the UCL like you normally would at home. This is the result of geo-blocking - best understood as digital borders that restrict certain services and content to specific parts of the world.
A good streaming VPN can let you get around these digital borders, while also offering robust protection from cybercriminals and government snooping. They're also very easy to use.

Champions League fixtures: June 2023
(All times BST)
Saturday, June 10
8pm: Manchester City vs Inter
When is the 2022/23 Champions League final?
The 2022/23 Champions League final has been scheduled for Saturday, 10th June 2023, and is set to be held at the spectacular Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey.
Kick-off has been pencilled in for 10pm TRT, which is 8pm BST.
This will be the second Champions League final to be held at the 75,000-seater arena, after the legendary 2005 final that saw Liverpool come from 3-0 down at half-time to beat AC Milan on penalties, in a game that's gone down in football folklore as the "Miracle of Istanbul".
Who won the Champions League last year?
Real Madrid became the butt of all the jokes when they lost to Sheriff Tiraspol in one of their opening games of last season's tournament, but Carlo Ancelotti would get the last laugh.
They secured a record-extending 14th title (six European Cups, eight Champions Leagues) after the most improbable run through the knockouts that the competition has ever seen.
Their victories over PSG, Chelsea and Man City defied all logic, featuring late goals, controversial calls, and extraordinary strokes of fortune, and they went into the final against Liverpool as major underdogs. However, a second-half strike from Vinicius Junior secured a comfortable 1-0 victory over Jurgen Klopp's Reds.
