Manchester City’s Champions League Final Opponent – What Do We Call Them?

Inter Milan is one of the most decorated and storied clubs in Italian football. With nineteen Serie A titles, three European Cups, and a host of other honors, it’s no wonder that they are Manchester City’s Champions League final opponent. But what do we call them? Inter Milan, or Internazionale Milano?

The club was founded in 1908 by a group of students from the city of Milan. The name “Internazionale” was chosen to represent the club’s international character. Ever since then, their fans have been known as “Bianconeri” (White-and-Blacks). This nickname references the team’s traditional colors: black and white stripes on an all-black jersey.

Throughout their history, Inter has enjoyed many successes both domestically and internationally. Their first two European title wins came back-to-back in 1964 and 1965 under the leadership of legendary coach Helenio Herrera. His renowned “Grande Inter” side dominated Europe during that era. In 2010, Inter added another European Cup to their cabinet after defeating Bayern Munich in Madrid with Jose Mourinho at the helm.

In addition to their impressive trophy haul, Inter Milan are famously part of the Italian Derby with fierce rivals AC Milan; a rivalry that dates back over one hundred years ago when they faced off for the first time in 1909. This derby is considered one of the biggest rivalries in world football and continues to be a staple fixture for Italian teams every season.

Inter continue to be an important part of Italian football culture today; they boast one of the largest fan bases in Italy and around the world with support from all corners of globe including North America and Asia. Their passionate fan base can often be seen sporting Inter Milan jerseys featuring Nerazzurri (black-and-blue) stripes – a nod to their classic kit color scheme – as they cheer on their beloved squad at San Siro Stadium or wherever they happen to be playing around the world.

As Manchester City prepare for this historic match-up against Inter Milan – or Internazionale Milano – there can be no doubt that it will prove to be an enthralling encounter between two giants of European football seeking glory on the grandest stage!
