Sport: Real Madrid to face Juventus in Champions League final

Real Madrid will face Juventus in the final of the Champions League on June 3rd in Cardiff, Wales.

Real lost 2-1 to rivals Atletico Madrid in the second leg of their semi-final but qualified on a 4-2 aggregate having won the first leg 3-0.

It will be a repeat of the 1998 final when Madrid defeated the Italians 1-0 in Amsterdam.

Two early goals by Saul Niguez in the 12th minute and Antoine Griezmann from the penalty spot four minutes later, put Atletico on course in a bid to erase the 3-0 first-leg deficit.

Sport: Barcelona & Brazil striker Neymar to stand trial for alleged fraud and corruption

Neymar and his parents are to stand trial over alleged fraud and corruption.

In addition the Barcelona president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, and his predecessor Sandro Rosell will go on trial for alleged fraud and corruption over Neymar’s transfer from Santos in 2013.

The two clubs were also ordered to stand trial. All have denied wrongdoing.

Spanish prosecutors have recommended Neymar be handed a two-year jail sentence and fined €10m. Sentences of two years or less are usually suspended for first-time offenders in Spain.

Sport: Fellaini sees red as Manchester derby ends in 0-0 draw

Marouane Fellaini saw red for headbutting Sergio Aguero as Manchester City retained a slim advantage in their top-four battle with Manchester United following a frantic goalless draw at the Etihad Stadium.

Fellaini's moment of madness - a clear butt on Aguero as the pair clashed following a trip by the Belgian - came six minutes from time in a tense stalemate that leaves City a point in front of their neighbours and in charge of the Champions League race.

Sport: Chelsea inch closer to Premier League title with 4-2 win over Southampton

Chelsea have moved a step closer to the Premier League title after a 4-2 home win over Southampton.

The Blues move seven points clear of Tottenham, although Spurs have a game in hand to come against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Wednesday in which they could close the gap back down to four points.

Eden Hazard, whose perceived lack of selfishness in front of goal was a pre-match talking point, gave Chelsea the lead after just five of minutes of action with a low shot.

Yorke criticises lack of black bosses in football

Former Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke has criticised the lack of black bosses in football and claims he cannot get an interview for a manager's job.

Yorke, 45, said he knew of black former players who would not do coaching badges as they felt they had little chance of getting a coaching role.

"If it's not because of the colour of our skin then tell me what it is?" the former Trinidad and Tobago player said.

"I'm speaking out about it. Be fair. At least give us an interview."

Sport: Lightning did not strike twice - Barcelona out Champions League

Miracles do happen. But not every six weeks.

And not against this Juventus; not with Giorgio Chellini and Leonardo Bonucci, born to block, at the heart of a defence.

Barcelona are out of the Champions League, with Juventus going through into the semi-finals, and now the recriminations and rebuilding will begin in Catalonia.

They could not over-turn a daunting first-leg deficit, as they did in the previous round against Paris Saint-Germain just a month and a half ago, although there were chances.

Lionel Messi, amazingly, was wasteful.
