Champions League Final - Man City v Chelsea

For the third time in European Cup history, we have an all-English final as Manchester City take on Premier League rivals Chelsea for a shot at glory.

All eyes will turn to Porto's Estadio do Dragao as City go in search of their first Champions League trophy against a Chelsea team who tasted glory back in 2012.

Pep Guardiola's men have finished 19 points better off than The Blues domestically and enter Saturday night's clash as favourites to lift the famous trophy.

Yet Chelsea have got the better of the Premier League champions twice in the past month and under Thomas Tuchel the Londoners are a team on the up.

Finals Month on BT Sport

With nine finals in 15 days, from football and rugby's top competitions, read our guide for the games you can't afford to miss.

Tuchel's men overcame 13-time winners Real Madrid in the semi-finals and possess one of the meanest defences in Europe. Against a team with as much firepower as City's, you  feel they'll need to display all their defensive nous to emerge as winners in Porto.

Chelsea will take heart from their previous Champions League final success though, when they headed to Bayern Munich's Allianz Arena as outsiders against the German champions yet emerged with a dramatic shootout win thanks to Didier Drogba's interventions.

It all sets up what promises to be a tantalising clash in Iberia as the Premier League sides battle it out to conquer Europe.

Gallagher Premiership - Matchday 20

As we approach the business end of the domestic rugby calendar, BT Sport bring you another full round of Gallagher Premiership fixtures from Friday night until Sunday afternoon.

First up, on Friday night, we have a top-flight double-header as Sale Sharks take on Bristol Bears and London Irish visit Gloucester.

Bristol have been the dominant force this season and sit atop the table but face a tough task in seeing off a Sharks side who came out on top in the reverse fixture at Ashton Gate.

Gloucester meanwhile will want to end a miserable campaign on a high when they travel to the Brentford Community Stadium to face a London Irish team who've been outperforming expectations.

The action continues with three games on Saturday, beginning with a clash from the home of English rugby as Harlequins bid to solidify their place in the upper echelons of the Premiership with a win over Bath.

Next up we turn to Welford Road where Leicester Tigers bid to bounce back from Challenge Cup final disappointment against a basement boys Worcester.

It's Northampton against Wasps up next in a match that could have huge ramifications for who qualifies for Europe next season before we round the weekend off with Exeter's trip north to Newcastle as the defending champion Chiefs bid to close the gap on leaders Bristol on Sunday afternoon.

MotoGP - Grand Prix of Italy

The 2021 MotoGP campaign is racing by and we are already at the sixth Grand Prix of the season - from the Mugello Circuit in the beautiful Italian region of Tuscany.

After Maverick Vinales claimed the Grand Prix of Qatar opener, Fabio Quartararo and Jack Miller have each claimed back-to-back wins in the next four races leaving the current standings wide open.

It tees up a tantalising trip to central Italy as second-placed Francesco Bagnaia will hope to close the gap on standings leader Quartararo with a win in his home country while Johann Zarco, Miller and Vinales lurk closely behind.
