The Champions League final did not offer too many emotions and the teams did not accumulate clear situations to open the scoring. One of the first, the most considerable of all, was for Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola a nightmare.
When Manuel Akanji decided it was a good idea to let Bernardo Silva's pass be the goalkeeper's responsibility, Guardiola's pressure was on. He saw what the Swiss could not: Lautaro Martinez in speed to intercept the ball.
When the Argentine, of great game and remarkable wear, took the ball and advanced diagonally in the direction of the goal, Guardiola fell to his knees to the ground and followed the play from there, as if anticipating the blow that would come.
However, Ederson rose to the occasion, narrowed the angle to the Argentine, who could not get a precise shot and the goalkeeper became a hero and returned the pulsations to Guardiola, who joined and could continue with his.
