SOCCER

Pep Guardiola's Champions League drought will stretch beyond eleven years.

His Manchester City side looked to be cruising into this month's final, but two late goals from Real Madrid's Rodrygo forced extra-time in their semi-final last night.

Karim Benzema then converted a penalty early in extra-time to give Real a 3-1 win on the night at the Bernabeu - 6-5 aggregate victory.

Real will play Liverpool in Paris in the decider on May 28th, just as they did in the same city in 1981.

Carlo Ancelotti will bid to become the first man to win four Champions League titles from the dugout.

Liverpool & Real last met in the final in 2018, with the latter lifting the trophy.

Guardiola says it's difficult to take:

The final line-ups in Europe's other two competitions will be completed tonight.

West Ham must come from behind in Germany if they're to reach the Europa League final - they trail Eintracht Frankfurt 2-1.

Rangers have home advantage as they look to overturn a 1-0 first leg deficit against RB Leipzig.

 

Roma and Leicester City resume level at a goal apiece in the second leg of their Conference League semi-final at the Stadio Olimpico.

While Feyenoord take a 3-2 first leg lead to the south of France, as they face Marseille.

 

The Women's Super League title race will go down to the final day of the season after Arsenal beat north London rivals Tottenham 3-0.

Arsenal will need to better Chelsea's result on Sunday to stop Emma Hayes' side winning the trophy for a third season in a row.

GOLF

The start of this year's British Masters has been overshadowed by defections to the Saudi-backed LIV Golf tour.

Defending champion Richard Bland is one of those who have handed in release requests, to the DP World Tour.

Lee Westwood has also requested his release, and has defended Saudi Arabia in the face of accusations of sportswashing.

Paul Dunne, Jonathan Caldwell and Cormac Sharvin are all in action at the Belfry today.

 

Meanwhile, Rory McIlroy and Seamus Power are in the field for the Wells Fargo Championship, which gets underway just outside Washington later.

RACING

There's a seven-race card at Tipperary this evening, with the first going to post at 5.15pm.
