FA Cup final

The 140th edition of the world’s oldest club competition reaches a finale on Saturday as Chelsea and Leicester lock horns for one of the most coveted prizes in football.

Chelsea have been a revelation since Thomas Tuchel took over from Frank Lampard in January and he could yet preside over a remarkable Champions League and FA Cup double in his first season at the helm.

The Blues have conceded only once en route to Wembley and dumped out quadruple-chasing Man City in the last round to reach their fourth final in five years.

BT Sport: THE place to watch the final

Leicester’s European hopes for next season are back on track after an invaluable win at Man United and they will be looking to spring another surprise on Saturday.

Brendan Rodgers’ side, competing in their first FA Cup final since 1969, are in pole position to finish in the Premier League’s top four and could cap off a superb season with a rare piece of silverware.

Thousands of fans will be in attendance at the home of football and BT Sport will be bringing the curtain down on another captivating season of cup football in style.

From a five-hour broadcast with a stellar line-up of pundits and analysts to an immersive digital viewing experience, don’t miss any of the action as we get underway on BT Sport 1 HD and Ultimate from 3pm on Saturday.

Women’s Champions League final

Absolutely anyone can watch Chelsea’s bid for a maiden Champions League crown on Sunday. The showpiece from Gothenburg, Sweden will be shown for free on the BT Sport app, btsport.com and our YouTube channel.

Chelsea reached the final after overturning a 2-1 first-leg deficit against Bayern Munich. Emma Hayes’ side won 4-1 in the second leg at Kingsmeadow to become only the second English team to reach the final after Arsenal in 2007.

The 44-year-old, who remains on course for an unprecedented quadruple after securing the Women’s Super League title, was overcome with emotion after the historic win.

“I’ve wanted today so badly,” she said. “It was the longest week in the world. I had to do everything to keep my emotions in check, keep training normal. I just wanted the game to come. I’m so happy it was an early kick-off.

“I’ve been in enough of these games now to know they’re never straightforward. Fair play to Bayern, I think they were a tremendous opponent. But the resilience in this group is just so unbelievable.”

Barcelona will be a difficult test having knocked out Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City on their route to Sweden, and they have more experience than Chelsea, having been runners-up in 2019.

Find out if Chelsea can overcome Barca live on BT Sport 2 HD from 7.15pm on Sunday.

Premier League

We have another double-header from the Premier League this weekend, starting with Burnley’s clash with Leeds at Turf Moor on Saturday - live on BT Sport 1 HD from 11.30am.

The Clarets secured their top flight status for another season courtesy of a 2-0 victory over Fulham last time out, thanks to first-half goals from Ashley Westwood and Chris Wood.

The victory means Sean Dyche’s men will play Premier League football for the sixth successive season, a notable achievement given they have one of the league’s smallest budgets.

They entertain Leeds in the Saturday early kick off, who bounced back from a disappointing defeat to Brighton with a comprehensive 3-1 victory over Tottenham last weekend.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side are 10th in the table and will be pushing for a top-half finish with three matches to play.

On Sunday, Everton - who still retain hope of qualifying for Europe next season - host rock bottom Sheffield United at Goodison Park.

The Toffees occupy eighth-place in the table and are three points adrift of fifth-placed West Ham, who they beat 1-0 last time out to give their European ambitions a shot in the arm.

For opponents Sheffield United, who have endured a dismal campaign, it’s a case of re-building ahead of their return to the Championship next season with all the action live on BT Sport 1 HD & Ultimate from 6.30pm on Sunday.

UFC 262

A new UFC lightweight champion will be crowned when Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler meet in the main event for the belt vacated by Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The event will take place at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas in front of a full capacity crowd.

Four reasons you can't afford to miss this card

The post-Khabib era begins and it promises to be an unmissable spectacle.

Former three-time Bellator champion Chandler made a stunning start to his UFC career with a first-round TKO of Dan Hooker at UFC 257 which earned him the performance of the night bonus.

He meets Brazilian Oliveira who is on an eight-fight winning streak, the most impressive coming against Tony Ferguson at UFC 256 in December.

Ferguson also returns at UFC 262 against Beneil Dariush in a tantalising co-main event.

Katlyn Chookagian vs Viviane Araújo, Shane Burgos vs Edson Barboza and Matt Schnell vs Rogério Bontorin are also scheduled to take place on a stacked main card.

A welterweight bout between Brit Leon Edwards and former lightweight title challenger Nate Diaz was expected to take place at this event, but Diaz pulled out due to a minor injury. The bout will now take place at UFC 263 in June.

Set your alarms for 1am on Saturday night because this is not one to be missed, live on BT Sport 1 HD! But don't forget, you can watch all the action on the BT Sport app on Sunday morning completely spoiler free.

Gallagher Premiership

Three matches from Round 19 of the Gallagher Premiership will be shown live and exclusive on BT Sport this weekend.

Our coverage begins on Friday night when Bath entertain Sale at The Rec from 7pm on BT Sport 1 HD & Ultimate. Stuart Hooper’s side have probably left themselves with too much to do to reach the play-offs after successive defeats to Wasps and Bristol.

Third-placed Sale have bounce back from European disappointment with three consecutive league wins and are well placed to finish in the top four.

On Saturday, we have live coverage of Wasps’ meeting with rock bottom Worcester, from 3pm on BT Sport Extra 1 HD, and Leicester’s clash with Harlequins from Welford Road at the same time on BT Sport 2 HD.

Lee Blackett’s side have shown signs of improvement in recent weeks after a poor season by their standards, but they were denied a second successive victory at the death against Harlequins last time out.

They’ll be looking to return to winning ways against a Worcester side who have won only three games all season.

Harlequins will be confident of continuing their superb season against an improving Leicester side in the second part of our double-header.

The remaining three games from Round 19 will be show on Monday and Tuesday next week with broadcast details available here.

MotoGP France

After a two-week hiatus, the 2021 MotoGP season is back up and running with the Grand Prix of France at the legendary Le Mans circuit.

Ducati’s Francesco Bagnaia leads the championship standings despite not winning a race this season. He’s two points ahead of France’s own Fabio Quartararo who couldn’t make it three successive wins in Spain after claiming victory in Doha and Portugal.

Australia’s Jack Miller beat team-mate Bagnaia to claim his second MotoGP victory at the Spanish Grand Prix last time out, after a mechanical issue saw Quartararo’s pace drop considerably.

“It’s a flood of emotions: happy sad, everything,” said Miller, whose previous win came at Assen in 2016.

What promises to be another wide open season is shaping up fascinatingly as the European swing continues.

We’ll build up to the race with full and uninterrupted coverage of every Free Practice and Qualifying session on Friday and Saturday, live on BT Sport 2 HD from 8am. We’ll also, of course, be showing every Moto2 and Moto3 session - including the races - in full as well.

Race day gets underway at 9.30am on BT Sport 2 HD and after you catch your breath, Chequered Flag will round up the weekend’s talking points with the very best analysis from our pundits and high-profile guests on the same channel from 2pm on Sunday afternoon.
