UEFA Champions League final headlines This Weekend’s Soccer on TV and Online

2 Shares

2022’s UEFA Champions League final is set to be one for the ages when Liverpool and Real Madrid square off at the Stade de France to duke it out for the highest prize on the club side of soccer.

Liverpool is on the cusp of a treble after claiming the EFL Cup and FA Cup in England this season, but has shown the occasional vulnerability which kept the Premier League title out of the Reds’ clutches.

Real Madrid is also working on a treble. Los Blancos just celebrated their capture of a 35th La Liga title in addition to winning the Supercopa de España this year.

Of the two, Real Madrid’s UCL resume is much more impressive as it features a flair for the dramatic with comeback wins over Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea, and Manchester City in the knockout rounds, but for good reason, Liverpool is the odds on favorite and is the more talented team when you compare player for player.

We’ll also find out who gets to join the Premier League next season when the EFL Championship final kicks off on Saturday. Huddersfield Town and Nottingham Forest are vying for promotion after falling out of the Premier League for three and 22 seasons respectively.

  1. the irony, Ives, is that the USMNT played a very similar tactical game vs. Spain all those years ago to break Spain’s winning streak, and Spain and the rest of the world freaked out on that style of play and cried and whined and moaned. We ended up with Klinsmann. Now the Carlo is praised for it…in Spain. LOL

  2. and that is before even addressing the delay and the chaos outside the stadium because of the ticket fiasco. What a complete and utter joke this final failure was

  3. Pathetic final. Wimp ball rewarded. Madrid didn’t even come to play, Carlo…what a wimp. Kept 6 to 7 players behind midfield when they countered all flipping game. Just booted long and didn’t try to construct anything, all flippin game. Played like Burnley, except with less attacking courage. And literally parked the bus with everybody the entire game…in the final of what is supposed to be the showcase event of European football…LOL! And then rewarded by the french official when Diaz was mauled, not only a no call but the foul was somehow in Diaz. Madrid soon scored. Truly an embarrassing final. And folks will wax on about the genius and the greatness of Real Madrid.
