The UEFA Champions League all season long on ESPN.
From Spanish sides Real Madrid and Barcelona and talented English clubs like Manchester City and Chelsea to traditional German powerhouse Bayern Munich, the UEFA Champions League yearly spotlights the strongest sides from the leading leagues across Europe. Widely acknowledged as a showcase for some of the best football talents on the planet, every season of the UEFA Champions League delivers top-notch action that keeps fans across the globe on the edge of their seats from September to May.
Last season’s final was historic, featuring a matchup of two sides not only from the same country but, for the first time in the league’s history, two from the same city. Traditional power Real Madrid took on scrappy city rival Atlético de Madrid – who only a week earlier had claimed the La Liga title – in a final that won’t soon be forgotten. Atlético held the lead until a header by Sergio Ramos in the additional minutes tied things up. Extra-time goals from Gareth Bale, Marcelo and Cristiano Ronaldo capped things off, giving Real Madrid their long-desired “décima,” a tenth UEFA Champions League title.
