Flights prices for Manchester to Istanbul skyrocket for Champions League final after Man City’s first-half masterclass against Real Madrid

Manchester City fans may have to pay eyewatering prices to travel to Istanbul for the Champions League final.

Pep Guardiola’s side unleashed a masterclass in the first half of their Champions League semi-final second leg against reigning champions Real Madrid.

On 26 minutes De Bruyne threaded a pass between a pair of Madrid defenders to find Bernardo Silva, who flashed a finish past Thibaut Courtois to open the scoring.

And just seven minutes later Silva netted again, this time cooly guiding a header into the top corner from ten yards to give City a 2-0 lead and a 3-1 aggregate advantage.

But City could have netted four of five goals had it not been for the exceptional reflexes of Courtois. Meanwhile Real were lacklustre, registering an expected goal of 0.1 in the first period.

Such was City’s dominance, prices for flight to Istanbul have skyrocketed.

City fans eager to make the Champions League final on June 10 will have to pay an enormous price.

Direct flights from Manchester Airport to Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen International Airport cost £988.88, according to Pegasus.

That price includes an outbound ticket at 11:55am on the Friday that cost £469.89, with a return the day after the final at 08:30am, which costs £525 at time of writing.

Should City avoid any late heartbreak, they will come up against Inter Milan in the final. Le Nerazzurre completed a 3-0 aggregate win over fierce rivals AC Milan on Tuesday evening to qualify for their first Champions League final in 13 years,

Meanwhile, City are on course to claim the treble this term, having all but won the Premier League and qualified for the FA Cup final, where they will take on Manchester United.

Should they complete the feat, they would become only the second English team in history to claim the treble, after United in 1999.
