Spanish King's Cup (Copa del Rey) final

11th June 2005 @ Vicente Calderón Stadium (Atletico Madrid's stadium)

Italian Cup final

1ST LEG: 12th June 2005 @ Stadio Olimpico, Via Foro Italico, Rome, Italy
2ND LEG: 15th June 2005 @ Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (San Siro), Via Piccolomini 5, Milan, Italy

These are probably the last two biggest cup finals or any biggest finals of European football left of this season. After that, we will have to wait until August before there is any nice and competitive football matches to watch. We will just bore ourselves to death with transfer news/rumours after transfer news/rumours. Well, can't help it, that's life during the break.

It will be interesting to watch the Italian Cup final especially since you have AS Roma against Inter Milan. Both have not win anything this season and will be pressured to get it. This situation reminds me of the English FA Cup final between Arsenal and Manchester United. The upcoming Conferdations Cup is causing problems for Inter, as the Nerazzurri will have to do without their Brazlian and Argentine stars for the Coppa Italia final against Roma because of the FIFA event set to take place in Germany. For the Spanish Cup, it is pretty obvious that Real Betis are the favourites.

Whatever the outcomes, I really wish both games will be a nice finish to the season. I mean there are nothing else left to watch so let's hope for 2 last exciting matches of the season. Oh, my mistake, I forgot the Italian Cup has 2 legs, so you have 3 matches. I think it is the only competition left on earth to have 2 legs final. No?
