After epic comebacks in the semi-final round, it's an all-English final for the UEFA Champions League final. Liverpool was down three goals after the first leg against Barcelona, and pulled off a miraculous 4-0 victory in the second leg in front of its home crowd at Anfield to advance on aggregate goals. Not to be outdone, Tottenham got three second-half goals from Lucas Moura to advance past Ajax with a stunning 3-2 win.
After the stunning results in the semifinals, what do the Reds and Hotspurs have in store for the final in Madrid? Here's what English- and Spanish-speaking soccer fans in the US who also happen to be cable TV cord cutters need to know to watch the UEFA Champions League final.
When and where will the Champions League final be played?
