If you could sum up the 2023 Champions League final in one word, it would be… rubbish. City 1-0 Inter. No excitement, no real jeopardy. 

Let's face it, the previous season's final wasn't great. And it wasn't just the horrible scenes outside the stadium, while Camilla Cabello continued obliviously, bashing through a medley of Latin pop like there was no tomorrow. It just wasn't a good game of football, either.
