A sole goal settled this year’s edition of the European Cup, with Kai Havertz proving to be the difference between the two sides.

Chelsea have been crowned the champions of Europe after beating Manchester City 1-0.

Chelsea opened the scoring near the end of the first half, with €80 million man Kai Havertz putting the ball into the back of the net, and held out for 90 minutes plus seven minutes of stoppage time to clinch their second Champions League trophy.

Pep Guardiola was able to make history by leading Man City to their first-ever final of Europe’s premier club competition, but he was unable to guide his side all the way through. The Spanish manager has failed to achieve continental glory ever since leaving FC Barcelona back in 2012.
