Kai Havertz scored the opening goal in the Champions League final between Manchester City and Chelsea FC on Saturday. The Blues were dealt a blow earlier in the first half as their standout center-back Thiago Silva was subbed out due to injury. But Havertz turned the tide just before halftime in the 42nd minute.

Midfielder Mason Mount delivered a long pass to Havertz, who split two Manchester City defenders. The goal was the first ever for the German attacking midfielder in a Champions League match.
