With just a handful of finals left to play, we take a look at what will be the final weekend of the domestic football season. Champions League and Playoffs for promotion and relegation, who will be tasting cup glory?
The Must-Watch Football Games From This Weekend:
Brentford v Swansea – Saturday, 15:00PM – Sky Sports Main Event:
This weekend we will find out who the final promoted team joining Norwich and Watford in the Premier League. Brentford or Swansea? It’ll be the best of the rest as the two sides who finished third and fourth in the Championship go head to head.
Brentford have spent almost seventy-five years away from top-division football, and have been exceptional for large parts of this season. Naturally, the star of the show for them this season has been the league’s top scorer Ivan Toney. With his thirty-one goals, he has been the star of the show this year. The pressure will be back on him, as he tries to fire his side into the Premier League for the first time.
Whilst over in Wales, Swansea have had a more mixed season. They were excellent in parts this year, but at times fell short. Now however, this is their chance to show they still have the ability to reach the Premier League.
Manchester City v Chelsea – Saturday, 20:00PM – BT Sport 1/ BT Sport Youtube Channel:
On Saturday, not only will it be the biggest game in the domestic football calendar, but it will mark only the third time two English sides will meet each other in the Champions League final.
City and Chelsea have been two of the best sides in the Premier League, with City arguably the best side across the whole continent. Despite that, Chelsea have had City’s number of late. Since Thomas Tuchel arrived at Chelsea, they have faced City twice and won twice.
The one thing going against Chelsea, you know other than City’s overwhelming stacked and quality filled squad, is Pep Guardiola’s final record. Only losing one final in his whole managerial career, he always seems to pull it out of the bag.
Tuchel’s second Champions League final in two years, Guardiola’s first at City. Who will leave as the victor?
