Ex-Chelsea player backs Liverpool to win Champions League

News broke earlier today that TV3 had snapped up the majority of the rights to Europe's top competition for the next three seasons.

"This season we have shown some absolutely fantastic games and have had some of our biggest games to date with our UEFA Champions League viewing figures up by 47 per cent this season".

Previously, Champions League matches had been shared between RTÉ and TV3 on terrestrial television in Ireland and, while that is still the case, the carve-up has changed somewhat. Begovic also advised Liverpool that they are facing a Real Madrid side that has placed all their attention on winning the Champions League, after failing to defend the La Liga "It's a heck of a Champions League final", "I mean you couldn't wish for much more with two huge clubs going at it".

The new deal will see the Ballymount-based broadcaster share the rights to 16 Tuesday night Champions League matches with RTÉ; with the latter having first choice of game broadcast.
