COPA DEL REY FINAL: FC BARCELONA V FC SEVILLA TICKETS
Great Copa del Rey Final Barcelona v Sevilla tickets still available.
The 2016 Copa del Rey Final between Barcelona and Sevilla will be held at Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid’s home ground, Vicente Calderon, on May 22, 2016. The amazing Calderon is considered one of the top stadiums in Europe.
Barcelona are the defending Copa del Rey champions after defeating Athletic Bilbao.
There was much controversy about where the match would be played, although the Spanish capital city of Madrid was selected as the ideal location due to its location approximately equidistant between Sevilla and Barcelona.
Both Sevilla and Barca wanted to play at Santiago Bernabeu, home of Real Madrid, but a Bruce Springsteen concert was already scheduled by Los Blancos.
Pep Guardiola managed his final match for Barcelona, a Copa del Rey Final against Athletic Bilbao, with a win for the Catalan giants at the last Copa del Rey final match to be played at Vicente Calderon in 2012, when three goals in the first 25 minutes - two from Pedro and one from Lionel Messi - saw Barca defeat Athletic Bilbao 3-0 to send Pep off in style.
The fight to the finish for the Spanish La Liga title is close between the top three sides. FC Barcelona is in first place with 88 points; Real Madrid is in second with 87 points; Atletico Madrid is in third with 85 points and Villarreal are in fourth with 64 points going into the final games of the 2015 – 2016 season.
Barcelona may win both the Spanish Primera League and Copa del Rey, since they are the 'best team in the world', according to Barca striker Luis Suarez. Uruguay international Suarez believes that their strong team ethic should see them win a second successive La Liga title. Barca, a point ahead of Real in the standings, travel to Granada in Andalucia on Saturday while Real Madrid are away at Deportivo.

Suarez who has scored 56 goals for Barca this season, believes a clean sheet against Granada is the top priority.
"It's key to keep a clean sheet, we know that we have what it takes in attack," said Suarez. "We can win the two titles or lose them. We are the best team in the world, and we know the pressure that comes with it, but we depend on ourselves. Granada will want to win for their own pride. With the goals and assists, if we win the league they have assisted that, but the collective attitude is part of that too,” continued Suarez. "We are aware that the fate is in our hands. We have enough time to win the game. We know there will be difficult moments, as that always happens at this stage of the league."
The former Liverpool star says his team-mates' trust in him has increased this season.
"Most of my teammates, like Messi or Neymar, have been looking to pick me out more, without me telling them, to give me options to score. It shows our team ethic,” added Suarez. "It is an honor to play at Barcelona with these players around me. On the field and off it they have been really important. This season we have shown we are great team-mates."

PREMIER LEAGUE TITLE RACE: LEICESTER, SPURS, ARSENAL, CITY, UNITED
England Premier League tickets, Schedule, Week 37 Results
Leicester City 3 - 1 Everton @ King Power Stadium
Current England Premier League champions, Leicester City defeated Everton 3 – 1 with a goal from Andy King, and two goals from Jamie Vardy, on Saturday, and the the Foxes celebrated winning the league with their devoted fans and staff in an emotional and uplifting tribute.
During the celebration 64-year-old Ranieri proudly stood with the famous Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli brought tears and awe to everywon as he sang “Time to Win Again”, Bocelli's special version of the stunning "Time to Say Goodbye".
After a 132-year wait in between titles, Leicester captain Wes Morgan and his manager lifted the Premier League trophy into the air together with a stunning backdrop of fireworks.
Full-back Danny Simpson talked with the media about his feelings of winning the coveted EPL trophy for the Foxes, and being presented with his own Premier League Champions medal.
“We won it on Monday night at Jamie’s house. But to actually see it there, walk up and put the medal round your neck and see your skipper lift it, it hits you,” Danny Simpson said. “The medal’s not coming off for weeks.”
After their amazing battle all the way from near relegation to Premier League victory this season, the Foxes are looking forward to being "the new kids on the block" when they compete with the most powerful and prestigious clubs in Europe in the 2016 – 2017 Champions League.
Of course fans are fearing the loss of Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez, and Kante to other EPL or Spanish wealthy, titan clubs during the summer trasfer window, after the footballers' spectacular key roles in Leicester’s success story.
EPL trophy winner Claudio Ranieri urged his new superstars to stay on at Leicester "another year and then go wherever they want". Ranieri said: "I feel it is possible, maybe, to keep all the players.
"It is important for us but it is important also for them because they don't know the Champions League. If they go away, it is not good for them. It is much better if they improve another year here and then go wherever they want,” continued Ranieri. "But I have said so many times if one player comes to me and says 'Gaffer, I want to go', then I let him to go because it is okay."
Amid transfer speculation talk and rumors, Danny Simpson plans to stay at Leicester and hopes all his teammates will stay as well.
"I want everyone to stay because it is a special group. Hopefully they stay and we can kick on because we are going places,” said Simpson. "I've played in a lot of teams now and that is not easy to get. Hopefully everyone wants to keep going and grow as a group and as a club.
"We all have a bit of banter but at the end of the day we have had a job to do and been concentrating on the games. Whatever the lads decide to do is up to them,” added Simpson. "We just hope we can keep this group together because for me it has so much potential to do even more things than what we have."
It is rumored that Foxes’ boss Claudio Ranieri may bring in some new quality talent to King Power Stadium to add depth to his squad that will have a harder workload compared to this campaign due to their upcoming European games.
“I hope we can find good players and make some replacements because next season there will be three cups and the Premier League, and it will be important to be able to make good changes and give some rest to the players,” said Ranieri.
The draw for the 2016-17 Champions League Group Stage will take place in Monaco on August 25, 2016. Be sure to check back for Champions League tickets.
“I believe when they make the draw for the Champions League a lot of teams will want to play against us because we are in for the first time and they think we are underdogs,” Ranieri said.
‘We are underdogs but we are dangerous,’ said Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri.
Leicester City’s annual awards dinner will be held on Tuesday evening,
And on Thursday night, Jamie Vardy will be in London to collect his 2015-16 Football Writers’ Player of the Year trophy,
Next Sunday the Foxes’ open-top bus will wind its way through the streets of Leicester in a city-wide victory celebration.
“I think we have proved that anything is possible,” Danny Simpson said. “You can go through the group individually. But it’s a team game and that is what we have proved this season. We are a team. Every single one of us has a little story, for whatever reason at other clubs. We’ve all come to Leicester, a great family club, and we have gelled as a group. Every one of us has excelled.”

LIVERPOOL TO CLASH WITH SEVILLA IN UEFA EUROPA LEAGUE FINAL IN BASEL
LiveFootballTickets.com still has great 2016 Europa League Final tickets for Liverpool v Sevilla on May 18th in Basel, Switzerland.
Pride, passion, and belief are key to Liverpool's strategy that has taken them to the Europa League Final.
Klopp who has taken his new team to two cup finals this season, had nothing but praise for his Liverpool side.
"Wonderful night, brilliant game from my side. What a performance. The first half an hour was a big emotion! It was great!”, exclaimed Klopp. “The last 15 minutes of the first half we lost patience. The second-half plan was to keep going with the emotional football but using the brain a bit more and in the end, brilliant.”
"Everyone spoke a lot about this team before I came here. It was all about quality and not good transfers. I came here because I thought they had a nice squad and now we are in the final."
Klopp’s Liverpool side overturned a first-leg deficit to beat Spanish La Liga titans Villarreal in the semi-finals.
Liverpool manager Klopp said he could find "30 million people who want to see the game".
"It is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to play this final but we cannot change the stadium so we cannot think about this," added Klopp. "I have been to Basel one or two times, it is a wonderful stadium and a wonderful city.
"I don't know what it means that it is nine years between Liverpool's last final," said Klopp. "A lot of teams want to go to finals, it is not too easy, but it is a real opportunity and we will take the opportunity."
Liverpool intends to "take the opportunity" when the Reds clash with holders Sevilla in the final of the Europa League, says manager Klopp.
The Reds lost the first leg of their semi-final tie 1-0 to Villarreal and went on to an impressive display in their second leg at Anfield on Thursday to win 3-1 on aggregate.
Going into their match with Villarreal, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp asked his men to play with emotion to pay tribute to the 96 victims of the 1989 Hillsborough disaster in Sheffield.
An embarrassing own goal by Villarreal captain Bruno Soriano under pressure from Sturridge, and second-half strikes from both Daniel Sturridge and Adam Lallana gave Liverpool the victory over Spanish opponents Villarreal and put the Reds through to the final.
Villarreal have already reached the Champions League next season by securing 4th place in the Spanish La Liga.
Twenty-six year old Daniel Sturridge who started on the bench in the first leg, and was named to the starting XI in the second leg, was key to Liverpool’s success as he scored one goal and was involved in the others. Sturridge has scored in four of his past five appearances at Anfield in all competitions.
Sturridge had a "great game .. great game", said Klopp. "When Daniel Sturridge is fit he is an unbelievable striker, but even he needs players to play with and I know about his quality, I knew before I came here. Great player."
Daniel Sturridge, FC Liverpool
Daniel Sturridge was jubilant and grateful after scoring Liverpool’s winning goal.
“The fans were top class and for the boys, it was about soaking up the atmosphere and putting in a performance. We had to work our socks off but we got the result we needed,” said Sturridge. ‘I’m grateful to God for all that I’ve been blessed with and in football there’s always going to be ups and downs. It’s about putting your body on the line.”
“If you don’t take shots, you don’t score. Scoring goals for me is a great feeling. We like to press and we like to be in opposition faces.”
"There will always be ups and downs in football. It is about being prepared to put your body on the line and take chances. It is a great feeling," added Sturridge.
Villarreal ended the game with 10 men after Victor Ruiz was sent off.
"When you perform like we did then you want to have it all and that is what we will try," said Klopp. "We will go there and try to do everything for this wonderful club."
Liverpool has won 8 out of the 11 European finals they have competed in: 5 of 7 Champions League trophies, and 3 of 3 Europa League trophies.
Sevilla have won the Europa League trophy for 2 years in a row, more than any other club. The winner of the Europa League Final will earn a place in the 2016 – 2017 season.
The Europa League Final match for the silverware at St Jakob-Park in Basel will be the Reds first European final since losing 2-1 to AC Milan in the Champions League in 2007.
With Jurgen Klopp in charge, there is a notable positive change in the Liverpool squad’s energy levels in general, and something special going on with individual players.
"In 2016, the team have shown a lot of times what they could be capable of in the future so that's a good sign and that is more important for me as a manager," said Klopp. "There's special times ahead. It's almost like they are unbeatable here. It's becoming a fortress."
Going into the last games of the season, Liverpool are in 8th place with 55 points.
Liverpool, Champions League winners in Istanbul against AC Milan in 2005 and 18 times England Premier League winners, are fighting their way back up to the top of the EPL table.
Klopp’s side lost on penalties to Manchester City in the League Cup final in February in Klopp's first cup try for a trophy with the Reds.
Liverpool next host Watford in the Premier League on Sunday aiming to secure a place in the 2016 - 2017 Europa League. The Reds are 9 points and 19 goals behind 4th place Manchester City in the Premier League. Liverpool will qualify for the Champions League next season if they win the Europa League Cup – an amazing show for Klopp in his first campaign in charge.
Through the years, the Liverpool side have been fiercely competitive and brought great glory and honor to their club and fans.

Zinedine Zidane, manager Real Madrid, and Manuel Pelligrini, head coach Manchester City – Real Madrid v Manchester City FC, UEFA Champions League Semi Final Second Leg
Real Madrid is on fire since boss Frenchman Zinedine Zidane has taken his new side from being kicked out of the Copa del Rey for fielding an ineligible player and being humiliated by Barca 4-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu, to being only one game away from being crowned “Kings of Europe”.
Zidane is regarded by some as ‘the coolest man on the planet’.
Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is happier and his game has picked up since Benitez was replaced by Zidane on January 4, 2016.
“Zidane is doing a great job. He’s helping us and we are helping him. I admire him as a coach and a person, I hope he continues in the job,’ said Ronaldo. ‘We’ve always been behind Zidane because he is a humble person who likes to listen, and that always makes things easier. I’m very happy.’
And with only two remaining La Liga matches, Real Madrid are still in the hunt for the league title and a top four Spanish Primera League finish in order to qualify for the Champions League again in the 2016 – 2017 season.

In the past, Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid have met 200 times in La Liga and Copa del Rey games. Most matches between the two titan Madrid clubs have resulted in victories for the Merengues.
This will be Real Madrid’s 14th Champions League final. Real Madrid has won the Champions League ten times in1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1966, 1998, 2000, 2002, 2014; and they have been runners-up 3 times in 1962, 1964, 1981.
Atletico Madrid has yet to bring the glory and prestige of winning the Champions League to their fans – but look to be capable of doing so this time.
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane took over from Rafa Benitez in January 2016. Zidane sees the upcoming CL final against Atletico as a “50-50” game – meaning both clubs have an equal chance of winning - after Real booked their spot to play Atletico Madrid in a repeat of the 2014 final in the most prestigious showpiece in Europe.
