LiveSoccerTV.com presents live scores, live stream and TV channel listings, plus live text commentary of the 2013 Champions League final, Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich, on May 25
Miami Beach, Florida (May 22, 2013) – Live Soccer TV offers you a wide range of listings to know where to watch Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich live on Saturday, May 25, 2013. Why miss the big crowning of Chelsea’s new successors in Europe’s biggest club competition – the UEFA Champions League?
At long last, the 2013 UEFA Champions League final is only moments away from kick-off at Wembley. London’s huge stadium will not be able to accommodate the hundreds of thousands of fans who applied for tickets. However, millions of viewers around the world will be able to watch the 2013 Champions League final live thanks to coverage provided by various sports networks.
Next season, Real Madrid will have yet another manager at the helm and one must wonder if Real Madrid can find a better tactician to replace the Portuguese genius.
It was definitely no surprise when Real Madrid opened their gates for Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese tactician arrived at the club on the back of a European treble with Italian Serie A side, Inter Milan. His arrival was definitely devised to tame the beast that Barcelona had becoming in Spain and in Europe.
Although the start to life at the Santiago Bernabeu was not kind on him, Mourinho was finally able to bring Barca’s domestic dominance to a halt as Madrid went on to win the La Liga in the 2011/2012 season. Making enemies and soaking up the pressure is exactly what Jose Mourinho is good at and perhaps that was the main reason why Madrid were so phenomenal on the domestic front.
After cementing a place in the top four of the Barclays Premier League, the Gunners are now aiming big and are looking forward making some high profile signings this summer.
Arsenal defeated Newcastle 1-0 courtesy of a goal from centre back Laurent Koscielny on the last day of the league, the goal ensured the Gunners a place in the Champions League for yet another season. For years Arsenal have remained under the shadows of other big spenders in the league, however with the Stadium debt almost paid off the Gunners are all set to secure high profile names in order to bring an end to their trophy drought.
One of the players the Gunners have been hotly linked to is Fiorentina forward Steven Jovetic. The Italian outfit is reportedly demanding 25 million pounds for the Montenegro international and should Arsenal match the price, they will have in their helm one of the most promising talents in world football.
After bidding Au Revoir to the game following Paris Saint-Germain’s coronation as Ligue 1 champions, world football will surely lose a mega star in David Beckham.
When it comes to football stars, there might be very few bigger than David Beckham. He may be no Zidane or Figo or Ronaldo, but world football will sorely miss the presence of a player who did so much for the game both on and off the field.
Many people still wonder what is that makes Beckham so special even though he has not really managed to win as many individual accolades as legends of yesteryears did during their playing careers. However, his passion and his commitment to the game were second to none and it has been the diminutive moments which truly define him.
1. Making an impression
The first time people saw that Beckham who would go on to become a true football phenomena was when he made his Champions League bow for Manchester United against Turkish giants, Galtasaray. The Red Devils thrashed the Turks 4-0. Although the score-line was not enough to secure progression, Becks got on the scoresheet and gave a fine account of his skills.
After making a return to the Ligue 1 the Monegasque club is looking to shake the order in France for years to come and have recently been linked to some big names.
ith seven league titles, five Coupe de France trophies and appearances in the finals of the UEFA Champions League on two occasions (1992 and 2004), AS Monaco are one of the most successful football clubs in France.
1970s and 80s were perhaps the golden age of Monaco under Lucien Leduc and Arsene Wenger. During that time, the club was on par with the likes of Olympique de Marseille, AS Saint-Etienne and Stade de Reims.
After being mired in footballing mediocrity for most part of the new millennium, Monaco are now set to once again regain their past stature. Much of the credit for what could happen in future goes to Russian billionaire, Dmitry Rybolovlev.

The final gameweek of the season threw up some interesting surprises in terms of standout players along with some usual expected names. Here we review the last weekend of the English Premier League from the perspective of our favourite game, the FPL!
Goalkeepers: The obvious outstanding performer this weekend was Fulham’s Mark Schwarzer. He kept a rare clean sheet and made a total of 15 saves in an agile display, which also earned him 1 BP! Chelsea’s Petr Cech also earned 1 BP for making 9 saves in a 2-1 win against Everton.

David Beckham plays his final football match as PSG take on Brest; Milan look to seal final Champions League spot at stake; Barcelona prepare for glamorous title celebrations
Miami Beach, Florida (May 18, 2013) – Two matches highlight beIN Sports’ incredible live soccer coverage this Sunday. Before that, though, beIN Sports followers will be able to witness all the emotion surrounding David Beckham’s very final game as a footballer. LiveSoccerTV.com (@LiveSoccerTV) reminds you not to miss PSG vs Brest, Siena vs Milan, FC Barcelona vs Real Valladolid or any of beIN Sports live telecasts this weekend.
In Italy, Milan’s battle away to relegated Siena will capture wide attention as the Rossoneri aim to secure the third and final UEFA Champions League spot in the Serie A. Last weekend, Milan played out a goalless draw away to Roma in an encounter that was marred by boos – identified as racist chants – from the crowd.
Can Benfica's streak of misfortune come to an end on Sunday, or will they have to watch their rivals celebrate yet another Portuguese League title?
Three negative results in all competitions has Benfica on the verge of throwing away a second title in a week. With one point separating them from the top spot in the Portuguese League, the Águias will not only need to win their match, but they will also need a positive result at the Mata Real Stadium.
Needing the full three points at home against Moreirense is a given for the Benfica players, but what is not a given is the actual victory.
The last two league matches for the Lisbon side have not been all that impressive, although the final result may not tell the full story of the match.
Two heartbreaking defeats in the 92nd minute have left Jorge Jesus' side on the verge of coming up empty handed in a matter of a week.
Despite a last ditch goal at the Estádio do Dragão from Porto's Kelvin, Benfica fans thought they had seen it all. How much worst could it really get? After Wednesday's match in Amsterdam, things got much worst for the Lisbon giants.
Taking a look back at their season, Jorge Jesus looked destined to claim at least one title, if not maybe two, but after their last two matches, even their Taça de Portugal match against Guimarães does not look promising.
Fans will ask how it is possible to concede two decisive goals in the final minute of a match, and while there is not a specific answer to that question, lack of experience and focus may well have been a main contributor.
The Rossoneri will be hoping to pick up maximum points on their visit to Siena to qualify for next season's UEFA Champions League.
An in-form AC Milan will be desperate to clinch a spot in the 2013-14 UEFA Champions League when they travel to the Montepaschi Arena to take on an already relegated Siena.
Milan, who beat Siena 2-1 earlier in the season, have been in electrifying form in recent weeks and will be looking to put on a memorable display in the final game of the Serie A season.
Chelsea-Arsenal-Tottenham battle for Champions League spots boils up; Jamie Carragher and Alex Ferguson feature in their last respective games; watch live games of EPL’s Week 38
Miami Beach, Florida (May 18, 2013) – Everything is set for the English Premier League’s very final week of the 2012/13 season. All ten matches will kick off simultaneously at 11:00am EST/15:00GMT/16:00 local time on Sunday, May 19, 2013. The fate of many teams has already been decided but there is still much to play for and the biggest sports networks across the planet are geared up for this mammoth day!
It is time to know where to watch every single match of your choice live online or on television come May 19. Finding answers to that can be a hard and time consuming task. Today, Live Soccer TV (@LiveSoccerTV) shows you all the information you need right in one place through a combination of TV channels lined up for the following fixtures:
Judging by their past meetings at the Mata Real, Paços de Ferreira is at a clear disadvantage. But, will their best campaign in club history play into Sunday's match?
Paços de Ferreira fans have enjoyed the most successful season in their club's history. On Sunday, a week after claiming a spot in the qualification round of the Champions League next season, Paços will get a chance to spoil the anticipated title party for Porto.
A last minute victory over Benfica on Saturday will not only have the Porto players full of confidence, but they now only depend on themselves to reclaim the title. Is Vítor Pereira's side going to be able to handle the euphoria heading into the Mata Real, or will this season's surprise team make things interesting?
We will take a look at their previous meetings and any potential patterns that could have any influence on the match come Sunday afternoon.
With the last week of the season coming up, it will be that time of the year when fantasy managers make those last minute changes to their sides.
It’s that time of the year again, the last weekend of the season for all you FPL managers to show your game in your mini-leagues. In this article, we analyse the goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders and strikers who could make or break your final weekend.
The obvious choice for a goalkeeper this weekend is Liverpool’s Pepe Reina, who will face QPR at home. Priced at an affordable 5.8m, Reina has been excellent this season keeping 13 clean sheets with an average of 4.17 saves per match.
Another option could be the ever-reliable Joe Hart as Manchester City will host Norwich to the Emirates this weekend. Hart is the more expensive option at 6.9m, but has been on top of his game the entire season.
For the first time in the history of the Premier League, the third place might be decided as a result of a play off should Arsenal and Chelsea end the season level on points, goal difference and goals scored.
The aforementioned situation is very much possible and should it happen the London duo will battle it out on the 26th of May at the Villa Park. Arsenal currently stand fourth with 70 points whereas their London counterparts are third with 72 points. Should Arsenal win their match on Sunday and if Chelsea are to draw their match against Everton, the two sides will be at level points.
However Chelsea have a slender advantage over Arsenal in terms of goal difference and goals scored. For the unique situation to arise Arsenal must defeat Newcastle by a one goal advantage and also score two more goals than Chelsea, the Blues on the other hand will have to be held to a draw at the Stamford Bridge where they play Everton.
The top four drama will finally reach its conclusion this Sunday as North London giants Arsenal and Tottenham battle one last time to guarantee a place in next season’s Champions League.
Arsenal pay a visit to St James’ Park where they face a Newcastle side who have something to celebrate for after they guaranteed their survival in England’s top tier football for another season. The Magpies however have had a very disappointing season especially considering their antics in last season’s edition of the Barclays Premier League, when they nearly broke in the top four and finished the season just five points shy of a top four finish.
The Newcastle side which was expected to grow from strength to strength instead suffered a peculiar decline and after repeatedly flirting with relegation this season, the Toons finally confirmed their stay in England’s top flight football by defeating Queens Park Rangers last week.
Champions United will feature for the last time in their history under manager Sir Alex Ferguson when they step out to take on eighth placed West Bromwich Albion.
Zoltan Gera and George Thorne are both injured for West Brom. Marc-Antoine Fortune is suspended. Ashley Young, Chris Smalling and Darren Fletcher are all out for Manchester United. Rafael is suspended.
Whether Sir Alex has the heart to form a game plan has to be questioned. One…
Tottenham knows their Champions League future lies in the hands of Arsenal; nothing but a win will do against a Sunderland side which escaped relegation by the thinnest of margins.
Sandro, Younes Kaboul and William Gallas are out for Spurs. Wes Brown, Lee Cattermole and Steven Fletcher are out for Sunderland. Craig Gardner and Stephan Sessegnon are both suspended. Danny Rose is ineligible due to Spurs connections.
Recent encounters between these two sides…
Two points separate two London giants going into the final day of the season. With David Moyes’ help, Arsenal can avoid the playoff spot altogether.
Chelsea is two points ahead of Arsenal while Spurs is one point behind Arsenal. Hence, the Gunners have to keep one eye behind them and one eye ahead of them going into the final weekend. Moyes is departing Everton after eleven long years; he could turn out to help Arsenal in his final game in charge at Merseyside inadvertently.
Despite proclaiming itself to be one of the leading countries in European football, Italian football has been unable to stamp down racism which players of African descent in AC Milan have felt more than once for a number of years
One of the biggest let downs of modern day football is the constant abuse players receive from a section of the crowd solely based on their skin colour. A wide variety of racial slurs have been experienced by players in many leagues in Europe. Try they might, but the local governing bodies have so far been unable to cut this weed out of the root.
As a trend that surely forces football to take one step backwards after going so far, racism continues to haunt Italian football which is a shame for a country that in past, boasted so many players of African origin who made a name for themselves at their respective clubs.
