The 2023 UEFA Champions League final is set, as Manchester City will meet Inter at Ataturk Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey to determine the competition's winner.
Man City, the likely Premier League title winners, are just 90 minutes away from completing a search for European glory that began in earnest upon Pep Guardiola's hire in 2016.
Meanwhile, Inter will hope to prove the doubters wrong one more time and restore the Champions League trophy to Italian football for the first time since Jose Mourinho's triumph with the Nerazzurri in 2010. Since then, Juventus failed twice at this last stage to claim the trophy, but Inter could be Italy's savior.
The match, which will take place on June 10, will surely be a massive spectacle.
Man City vs Inter betting odds for 2023 Champions League final
With the Champions League final participants now set, the odds are helpful to see how both the oddsmakers and betting market see this match playing out.
Man City opened as massive favorites, given -250 odds to win the match outright in regulation and -650 to emerge victorious and lift the trophy. This is likely due to the manner in which City not only obliterated Real Madrid in the second leg of their semifinal, but their domestic form as well, en route to a likely Premier League title.
Inter, meanwhile, emerged out of the gates massive underdogs, slotted at +675 to win across 90 minutes and +375 to be named champions.

Who is the favorite to win the 2023 Champions League final?
As of the initial odds release on Wednesday, May 17, the favorites to win the Champions League final is Premier League side Man City.
Pep Guardiola's team have been betting darlings all season long, for a long stretch maintaining their status as Premier League title betting favorites despite trailing Arsenal in the standings.
They have also been the Champions League betting favorites for the entire season, given +250 odds to win back in August when the group stage began. They have maintained that status as favorites throughout, seeing their odds drop with each progression through the competition.
Inter, meanwhile, have completely bucked conventional betting wisdom throughout the tournament. The Italian side began with +4000 odds to win the competition back in August at the start of the group stage, and were as high as +10000 at one point in early September after opening the group stage with defeat to Bayern Munich. That loss, coupled with four defeats in their first eight Serie A games of the season, saw many jump ship — they only fell below the +1000 mark in April once most teams had been dumped from the competition.
