Mo Salah. Harry Kane. Two of the best teams England has to offer fight to be the best in all of Europe.
Attention, fellow Americans: You’re forgiven if, at times, you find yourselves a bit confused over the complete inundation of British soccer here in the U.S. That’s a good thing, actually — I love being able to wake up in the morning on the weekends and watch hours of the sport. That’s generally the Premier League, though.
Some of the confusion no doubt is because you see a ton of the Premier League teams battling it out in the Champions League tournament. (And that’s different than the FA Cup, which comprises all four levels of professional football in England. But I digress.)
This weekend, we care all about the UEFA Champions League. Because this weekend we’ll find out who the best team in Europe is in 2019.
And, uh, it’s going to be one of two teams from the Premier League.
OK. We’ll make it super easy for ya.
When is the Champions League final?
The final match of the 2019 championship is happening at 3 p.m. Eastern time. (That’s noon on the West Coast of the United States.) It’ll kick off at 21:00 local time — 9 p.m.
If that seems like a late start, well, it is, considering that the game is being played in Madrid. But that gives those of us to the west a decent hour at which to watch.
Who’s playing in the Champions League Final?
That would be Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.
The former are expected to win. In fact, they’ve won the Euro Cup five times already and made it to the final last year.
The two teams hardly are strangers, with both being in the Premier League in England. Liverpool won the two times they faced off during the 2018/2019 season.
But this is soccer. (Erm, football.) It could well go either way. That’s why we play the games.
What channel is the Champions League final on?
Good news, everyone. The Champions League Final is bring aired on TNT in the United States. And TNT is available on just about every streaming service around.

The lone exception is the low-cost Philo. That’s a shame, but it’s also not unexpected.
If you’re not in the U.S? Well, the fine folks at UEFA have a handy list of everywhere in the world you’ll be able to watch the final match.
