After introducing the standard model of cosmology and its parameters, I will discuss two important tensions between early and late-time measurements, namely the H0 tension and the sigma8 tension. Considering a small late-time deviation of the standard model, I will drive fully analytical conditions that any late-time dark energy model has to satisfy in order to solve both tensions simultaneously (see arxiv:2201.11623).
