The sports planet is going to experience a crazy sports weekend, Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 May. Between two European finals, an emblematic F1 race, a crucial match for the L1, epic matches at Roland-Garros, or even the epilogue of the Giro, there will be something for everyone. Ask for the program!
Champions League: Real Madrid and Liverpool for a star (Saturday, 9 p.m.)
The European football season will come to an end on Saturday evening at the Stade de France. At the end of a campaign full of twists and turns, Real Madrid will try to win a 14th Champions League and accentuate their record of titles, four years after their last trophy. Facing Karim Benzema’s teammates, the Reds will be able to rely on Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané, two players who, like the Frenchman, are among the favorites for the Ballon d’Or.
Champions Cup: a first title for LaRochelle? (Saturday, 5:45 p.m.)
La Rochelle is advancing in the face of its history. Saturday evening in Marseille, the Rochelais are playing their second European final. A year after falling against Toulouse, the Yellow and Black finally want to put their name on the list. For that, it will be necessary to overthrow Leinster, grandissime favorite, without mercy. A meeting to follow on France 2 and the france.tv platform.
Roland-Garros: beautiful people to finish the 3rd round (every day from 11:00 a.m.)
After the nice surprises of the first days, the French Open continue at Porte d’Auteuil. Lucky ticket holders will have the chance to attend the rest of the third round matches, then the start of the round of 16. Those who will not have the chance to go there can continue to watch the matches on the antennas of France Télévisions or on france.tv.
Formula 1: Leclerc at home (Sunday, 3 p.m.)
For the seventh Grand Prix of the season, the paddock returns to the legendary Monaco circuit. Charles Leclerc, the big loser of the last weekend in Barcelona, arrives in the streets of his childhood city with the aim of reviving and regaining the lead of the world championship from Max Verstappen. After a complicated start to the season, Lewis Hamilton hopes to bounce back on a circuit where he has three victories, one length behind Alain Prost (four successes), but far from the six princely crowns of Ayrton Senna.
Barrage L1/L2: woe to the vanquished (Sunday, 7 p.m.)
There will only be one left. It is a crucial duel which pits two essential clubs in the French championship against each other. On the one hand, Saint-Etienne is playing its survival in Ligue 1 after already three complicated seasons. On the other, the Auxerrois of Jean-Marc Furlan hope to find the elite, exactly ten years after having left it. Three days after the first legeverything will therefore be played in the Cauldron.
And also: Giro, MotoGP, PSG-OL…
The Giro also comes to an end this weekend, with a final mountain stage, before the final time trial in Verona (Sunday afternoon). As for motorsports, the MotoGP world championship, and its leader Fabio Quartararo, is packing its bags at Mugello, for the Italian Grand Prix (Sunday, 2 p.m.).
On the other side of the Atlantic, Indycar is competing in the legendary Indianapolis 500 race (Sunday, 6:45 p.m.), in which Frenchman Romain Grosjean will take part for the first time.
