The Top Two

Barcelona Women win Champions League

A first half blitz that saw Barcelona put four goals past Chelsea was enough to claim the Champions League crown. Niamh Charles,  Alexia Putellas, Aitana Bonmati and Caroline Hansen were the scorers on the night.

Barca became the first club to have won both the UEFA Men’s and Women’s Champions League titles.

Nadal and Swiatek Emerge Champions in Italy

Rafael Nadal defeated world number one Novak Djokovic to win a 10th Italian Open title .

Nadal won a 2hour 49 min epic, 7-5, 1-6, 6-3 against the defending champion.

French Open champion Iga Swiatek claimed a double bagel victory in the final as she claimed a 6-0, 6-0 demolition of former world No.1 Karolina Pliskova in the Italian Open final.

The 19-year-old will defend her title at the Roland Garros later this month.


Cup Wins, League Titles & Alisson Wonderland

Manchester City won their third league title under manager Pep Guardiola after rivals Manchester United lost 2-1 to Leicester City, which gave the league leaders an unassailable 10-point lead in the points table.

It is Guardiola’s 10th major honour since taking charge at City in 2016. They have been in great form, setting the record for the most consecutive away wins in the league – 12.

City scored the most goals (72) and conceded the fewest (26) during the course of the season.

Rangers Win the Title

Steven Gerrard’s Rangers side became only the second team to win the Scottish Premiership and go an entire season without losing a game. They won all 19 of their home games and equalled the league record of 26 clean sheets in the campaign.

Leicester Create FA Cup History

Fifth time lucky. Leicester won the FA cup in their fifth appearance, defeating Chelsea 1-0 at the Wembley stadium in front of the largest crowd for a sports event in England since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

Youri Tielemans’s sensational strike was the only goal of the game. Watch the highlights below:


Dortmund Win DFB Pokal

German power house Borussia Dortmund thrashed RB Leipzig 4-1  at the Olympiastadion to win the DFB Pokal for the first time since 2017.

Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland scored two goals each while Dani Olmo’s stunning second half effort for Leipzig was a mere consolation.

Alisson Becker Scores Winner

In their 129-year history, no goalkeeper had scored a competitive goal for Liverpool before Alisson Becker stepped up to head the winner in the 95th minute against West Brom to keep their hopes of finishing in the Top 4 alive.

He is the first Premier League player to score a header and a winner.


Steph Curry Wins NBA Scoring Title

Stephen Curry helped the Golden State Warriors clinch the 8th seed after a splendid 46-point performance against the Memphis Grizzlies to secure a 101-113 victory at Chase Center.

He finished the season with an average of 32 points. Curry became the oldest player to win a scoring title since Michael Jordan.

The Warriors will face the LA Lakers in the play-in tournament next week.

Anthony Edwards’  30-point  performance helped Minnesota dominate Dallas in a season-ending win in Minneapolis.

Edwards is in contention to be Minnesota’s first Rookie of the Year since Karl-Anthony Towns won the award in 2016.

Brooklyn Nets Secure No. 2 Seed

The Nets closed out the season with a superb win over Cleveland Cavaliers. The victory means the Milwaukee Bucks will have the No. 3 seed in the playoffs and face off against the Miami Heat in the first round, while the Nets will face the winner of the Boston Celtics vs. Washington Wizards play-in matchup.

Watch this piece of play from the Nets in their final game:

In-form Kyrie Irving finished as the player who shot 50% or greater from the field, 40% or better from the 3-point range and at least 90% on free throws. He also averaged 25 points per season.
