City take on Premier League rivals Chelsea in Saturday's (29.05.21) showpiece and Guardiola insists his squad are prepared, even if he is unsure of his starting lineup.
Guardiola said: "They are ready, I know how good they are, all of them, I’m not going to change for one or two training sessions, like they are going to convince me. I know most of them for many years, I have an idea, there’s still the starting XI, still not done. Not yet."
Guardiola has reached his third Champions League final - and his first with City - but insists that the journey will only memorable if the club wins the trophy for the first time in Porto.
He said: "I never thought at the beginning of the season, that this was the season to get to the final.
"Never approach this competition like this, since I started at Barcelona, we are quite similar teams what we were in the past and when we were out.
"The margins are small, when it fell down on us a few years ago, not much changed.
"We are quite satisfied to get into the final but we know if you don’t have a huge desire to win it, a huge desire to know what you have to do, then it will not be possible to win the game and win the Champions League."
