Football Classics live at Highlander

25 May 2013

Football Classics at The HighlanderThe weekend of 25th and 26th of May 2013 will be marked by 2 stunning and at the same time super unique events for all the football fans! The history of soccer will gather some incredible facts after that weekend. There has never been a Champions League Final where 2 German teams will battle for the most precious title in the club tournaments... And The Derby of Rome has never happened to be The Final of Coppa Italia before!

There is always the first time, though and here it is! Saturday, May 25th 2013 - Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich will determine the winner of The UEFA Champions League. In the past decade we witnessed a Spanish, an Italian and an English Final and now it is Germany's turn. Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are the biggest rivals in the Bundesliga recently. In the past 2 years Dortmund won the German Championship at Bayern's expense... Bayern claimed the title in Germany this year and they completely dominated the Bundesliga allowing only one defeat for the whole season. Dortmund came second but they have a huge chance for redemption if they end up winning The Champions League. That will be a massive upset for The Bavarians who qualified for the final 3 times in the last 4 years and again are considered as the big favourites. So, the tension is there for both teams and we just need to see who will be destined to touch The Blaze of Glory! 

Enormous pressure is also on Roma and Lazio. The two bitter rivals from The Eternal City are the ones who reached the Final of The Italian Cup this year and the big battle is scheduled for Sunday, May 26th 2013. The match is supposed to start at 6 pm but some last minute updates are possible as on that same day the municipal elections of Rome are scheduled too and the locals will be choosing their new mayor.

A victory on the Final of Coppa Italia also means a guaranteed spot for the next year's edition of Europa League. No need to say that the matches between those two have never proceeded in friendly atmosphere....

All these facts pile up the pressure on everyone from the 4 teams. Highlander will be showing both games. Certainly, RESERVATIONS ARE STRONGLY RECOMMENDED! Those of you who reserve need to be at the pub  half an hour before the start of any of the matches!!!  Bookings who fail to show up on time will lose their seats to the customers who show up without reservations!!! And here is the summary of all of the above:
