Live coverage of the climax of European football's second club competition from the impressive Nya Ullevi stadium in Gothenburg. Kick-off is at 7.45.
The French team will be looking for goals from target man Didier Drogba , whose stunning brace in the semi-final against Newcastle ended English interest in the tournament. But their Spanish opponents, impressive throughout their own domestic season, will be hoping to make up for losses in their last two appearances in European finals, both times in the Champions League.
Extra-time and the silver-goal rule will apply if the match is deadlocked at full-time, with penalties if the stalemate hasn't been broken by the end of the 30 minutes.
Introduced by Gary Lineker , with expert analysis from studio guests. Commentary is provided by Barry Davies.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
