The UK’s European football broadcaster TNT Sports will continue to show the match on June 1.

But they have today announced that non-subscribers will also be able to stream the action live on Discovery+.

The option will also be available for the Europa League final between Bayer Leverkusen and Atalanta on May 22.

And the Europa Conference League final on May 29 between Olympiakos and Fiorentina will be shown on Discovery+ too.

It means fans will have several ways to watch the action for all three showpiece events.

The Conference final sees Fiorentina attempt to win a second continental trophy after losing last year’s game to West Ham, with Joe Cole and Don Hutchison in the TNT Sports studio.

But the Italians face a tough challenge in Greek gods Olympiakos, who demolished Aston Villa in the semis and will fancy their chances at the home of rivals AEK Athens.


A week earlier, the Europa final between Leverkusen and Atalanta takes place and will be monitored by Cole, Peter Crouch and Owen Hargreaves.

All eyes will be on new German champs Bayer, who remain unbeaten in all competitions this season.

But their Italian opponents will be a tough nut to crack, with Atalanta on a four-game winning run and hopeful of a Champions League finish in Serie A.

The last game will be the Champions League final, and has Hargreaves, Steve McManaman and Rio Ferdinand in tow.

Borussia Dortmund reached the Wembley final a decade ago before losing to Bayern Munich.

They KO’d giants like Atletico Madrid and PSG on the way too, with stars including Man Utd loanee Jadon Sancho in top form.
