Yesterday’s Champions League semifinal was fun to watch. Liverpool more or less destroyed Roma for 75 minutes before opening the door juuuuuuuust a crack - Roma still have a ton of work to do, but two away goals definitely ease the pain that the Mo Salah Show inflicted on them.
Today’s tie is between the two biggest teams left in the competition - Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. Real go to Bayern for the first leg with something to prove - they’re currently sitting in third in La Liga, four points behind Atletico Madrid, and are having by their standards an embarrassingly bad season. They’ll want to win this tie, and this trophy, to redeem that season in the eyes of their ever-patient, grounded, and blessed with a lot of perspective fanbase. Oh wait.
Anyway, the game kicks off at 11.45AM PT/2.45PM ET, and can be found, in the US, on Fox Sports 1. If you’re not in the US or are watching via stream, check livesoccer.tv for your info and options.
