By Michael SchumacherFootball ItaliaAs the World Cup final kicks off, there will be no need to travel to the stadiums of the major European leagues to watch the games.
But that will change for the Champions League Final between Barcelona and Real Madrid, scheduled to kick off on Sunday.
The tournament’s host will be Barcelona, with the final on Wednesday evening.
As the final draws near, UEFA has announced the starting time for the UEFA Champions league final between Barcelona (14.30 CET) and Real (15.00 CET).
It has been announced that this is the first time that Barcelona will play at home in a Champions League match.
This means that the final will take place in front of more than 30,000 people.
However, UEFA’s official website states that the first leg of the Champions league match will be played at a venue outside the country of Barcelona, rather than in the Catalan capital.
This is because, according to UEFA’s rules, the match will not be played in the same stadium as the other teams in the competition.
The Barcelona v Real game is not set to kick-off until Saturday evening, with UEFA announcing that the official kick-offs will be held on Wednesday, March 19.
The official website for the Barcelona v Madrid match says the following: “It is possible that a clash between the two teams in Catalonia on March 19 may be played with a pre-arranged date, which would mean the official kickoff would take place on the following Wednesday.”
This is the second time in three months that Barcelona and Madrid have faced off in the Champions leagues final.
On March 5, the two sides met in the first Leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final, with Barcelona winning 1-0.
The following week, on March 11, Real were drawn in the third round of the competition, with Madrid beating Barcelona 3-1 in the final.
