Hello, hello, hello and welcome to your Liberty Shields Live Sports blog for this upcoming weekend. Need a Live Sport Streaming VPN?
We are moving closer and closer to a return to normality with “test events” being held across the UK to integrate large groups of people back into social situations together. Football fans should be back in stadiums in reduced numbers before the end of the season which should bode well for full capacity events to return by autumn. Fun Fact: Live Sport Streaming is one of the most searched terms on Google!
Our Live Sport VPN articles are brought to you in partnership with EPL Index, and Dave Hendrick – host of the Two Footed Podcast, offering FREE podcasts to football fans.
With that, plus the European Championships, the Copa America and the Olympics all on the horizon there’s plenty to be excited about.
Anyway, it’s the weekend again so as usual we’ve put together a somewhat exhaustive list of the best live sport available to you over the next few days so let’s just jump straight in.
⚽ Live Football Streaming VPN
🖥️ Live BT Sport & Premier Sport Streaming
There’s a near full round of Premier League games on, so as usual we’ve gone ahead and previewed three for you which can be read right here.
Looking around the rest of the big five leagues, it’s a big weekend in a couple of them with games that could sway the title on offer.
Ligue 1 – Lens vs Lille on Friday at 8.00pm
With three games left in the Ligue 1 season, Lille hold a one point lead over PSG at the top of the table so they can’t afford any slip-ups in their remaining games. This weekend they face the toughest of their three remaining opponents when they visit 5th placed Lens knowing that anything short of a win will hand the advantage to PSG, who travel to Rennes on Sunday.
Lens lost to PSG last weekend but gave a good account of themselves, as they have done all season. Lens are the surprise package of the Ligue 1 season as a newly promoted team having finished 2nd in Ligue 2 last season. Their performances are particularly impressive when you consider that the team who beat them to the Ligue 2 title last season, Lorient, have struggled at the bottom of the table all season and currently sit 17th.
A Lille win will put all the pressure on PSG who are coming off a Champions League exit and could well suffer something of a hangover after the manner of their defeat to Manchester City. With St-Etienne and Angers to come, Lille know that a win here puts them in a very strong position.
Bundesliga – Borussia Dortmund vs RB Leipzig on Saturday at 2.30pm
Two teams who have played their part in the ongoing managerial merry-go-round in the Bundesliga meet on Saturday as 5th placed Dortmund welcome 2nd placed Leipzig to the Westfalenstadion as they try to continue their good run of form and secure a top four finish. With four wins in a row, BVB are the form team in Germany and they have found this form at the ideal time to close the gap on Eintracht Frankfurt and Wolfsburg who have both stumbled of late.
Leipzig are comfortable in 2nd place, nine points clear of Dortmund it would take a complete catastrophe for them to fail to finish in the top four. With Julian Nagelsmann leaving this summer to take charge of Bayern Munich, Leipzig have stayed within the Red Bull family to find his successor by choosing Jesse Marsch of Red Bull Leipzig. Marsch will take over a quality team but one likely to lose at least three important players in Dayot Upamecano, Ibrahima Konate and Marcel Sabitzer.
This game promises to be a fun one, especially with Erling Haaland seemingly on a one man mission to get Dortmund into next season’s Champions League.
La Liga – Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid on Saturday at 3.00pm
Third placed Barcelona welcome league leaders Atletico Madrid to the Nou Camp knowing that defeat likely ends their title hopes with just three games to play after this weekend.
Barca, a trainwreck in the early part of the season, found a system that worked for them and the form that had deserted them for the better part of 15 months to close what had, at one point, been a seemingly insurmountable gap between themselves and Atletico who have topped the table since November. A recent defeat to Granada cost them the opportunity to go top and they won’t want to let this opportunity, likely their last of the season, slip away.
Having suffered only one defeat in the first 23 games of the season, Atleti went on to lose three and draw three of their next nine games and had to watch the massive lead they had built over Barcelona and Real Madrid whittle away to a meagre two points. With Barcelona and Real having pretty straightforward run-ins after this weekend – Real play Sevilla on Sunday night, Diego Simeone will know his team can not afford to lose this game. A draw would still leave them top, regardless of the result of the Real vs Sevilla game, but only on goal difference. They would then have to win their last three games to secure the second La Liga title of the El Cholo era.
Serie A – Juventus vs AC Milan on Sunday at 7.45pm
There are just some games in football that mean a little bit more. Games that aren’t local derbies, but rather have a national impact. Liverpool vs Manchester United, Real Madrid vs Barcelona, PSG vs Marseille, Porto vs Benfica, Bayern vs Dortmund. Games that you go out of your way to watch. Juventus vs AC Milan has historically been high on that list, but in recent years it hasn’t held the same appeal. Milan have been largely terrible for most of the past decade. Since winning their last Serie A title in 2011, they have had to sit and watch Juventus lift nine straight titles. That was off the back of their city rivals Inter winning four in a row. Inter will claim five in a row but they were handed the 05/06 title because Juventus were thrown out of the competition having won it in dominant fashion, but that’s beside the point. It’s been a barren time for Milan.
Things have improved for Milan though, despite Inter claiming another title this season. Milan led the league for much of the season, playing the best football seen from a Rosseneri side since that title winning side. With the ageless Zlatan back to lead the line, the brilliant Gigi Donnarumma in goal and a mixture of proven quality and young talent in defense and attack, Milan are on their way to building a quality team that could prove capable of sustaining a title challenge in the next couple of seasons.
It’s been a very disappointing season for Juventus, one which may cost Andrea Pirlo the job he was thrust into without applying for. Their hopes for a tenth title in a row went out the window very early, the crashed out of the Champions League with little more than a whimper and they face a tricky run in that could see them miss out on Champions League qualification for next season. Juventus put all their eggs in the Cristiano basket and it has backfired on them. This summer they face big decisions, though if there is no Champions League football for the Old Lady those decisions might get made for them.
🏉 Live Rugby Streaming VPN
🖥️ Live BBC, ITV, BT Sport & Premier Sport Streaming
It’s back to domestic action this weekend with the Gallagher Premiership and the Pro14 Rainbow Cup putting on quality games galore.

It’s the Spanish Grand Prix at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya this weekend. Five time Spanish GP winner Lewis Hamilton will, as always, be the pre-race favourite. Hamilton was first to the chequered flag last weekend in Portugal, and given his dominance of the sport in recent years it would be no surprise to see him win his fifth Spanish GP in a row, and sixth overall to draw even with the great Michael Schumacher as the most successful driver in the history of this historic event.
💪 Live UFC Streaming VPN
🖥️ BT Sport Live Streaming & Catchup
The UFC brings you UFC on ESPN: Rodriguez vs Waterson this weekend, with a women’s Flyweight contest between Marina Rodriguez and Michelle Waterson in the headline slot. Rodriguez, 12-1, turned in the best performance of her career in January when she destroyed Amanda Ribas and she will be looking to do the same against the veteran Waterson. Waterson, 18-8, last fought in November when she outpointed Amanda Hill in a fantastic fight. With Waterson coming from a Karate background, and Rodriguez being a Muay Thai fighter, this clash of styles should lead to an entertaining fight.
Also on the card, Donald Cerrone takes on Alex Morono who has stepped in to replace Diego Sanchez, who was fired from the UFC last week because his manager/coach/guru is a jackass. Gregor Gillespie finally makes his return on this card too, taking on Carlos Diego Ferreira, and the women who lost to Rodriguez and Waterson in their last fights also face off as Amanda Ribas returns against Angela Hill who beat Ashley Yoder in March.
Bellator are back in action too, and once again have set their event for Friday night, rather than compete with the UFC for Saturday’s audience. Bellator 258 will feature a Bantamweight title fight between defending Champion Juan Archuleta, making his first defence of the title, and former UFC star Sergio Pettis.
The undercard was due to feature Anthony Johnson vs Yoel Romero in a Light Heavyweight Grand Prix contest but Romero failed his medical and has been replaced in the competition by Jose Augusto. While Romero’s absence is disappointing, it’s good to see another fighter being given an opportunity because the initial reports suggested that Johnson would get a bye through to the next round.
The potential show stealer on this card is Michael Venom Page who takes on Derek Anderson in a 175lb catchweight fight. Page is one of the most creative strikers in Mixed Martial Arts and he rarely has a boring fight.
🥊 Live Boxing Streaming VPN
🖥️ BT Sport & Sky Sports Live Streaming & Catchup
All eyes are focused on the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas for Saturday night’s showdown between the number one pound for pound fighter on the planet, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, steps into the ring looking to add the WBO edition to his WBC, WBA and Ring Magazine Super Middleweight titles. His opponent will be Britain’s Billy Joe Saunders who will be looking to cause one of the biggest upsets in recent Boxing history.
Saunders is a quality fighter, make no mistake. He holds an unbeaten 30-0 record and has wins over Chris Eubank Jr, David Lemieux and Andy Lee on his CV. In his most recent fight he outpointed Martin Murray in a hard fought contest. He has talked all the talk ahead of this fight, disrespecting Canelo at every opportunity in attempts to play mind-games with the Mexican star.
Canelo represents an enormous step up in class for Saunders though. One of the greatest fighters the game has ever seen he holds a 55-1-1 record with the only blemishes being a defeat to Floyd Mayweather and a draw against Gennady Golovkin, whom he defeated in a rematch. For a man who began his career as a Welterweight, it’s impressive how Canelo has carried his power and speed up to Super Middeweight as he jumps between weight class collecting belts at Light-Middleweight, Middleweight and even Light-Heavyweight. He has put on clinics in recent victories over Daniel Jacobs, Sergey Kovalev and Callum Smith, winning world titles in three different weight classes in those fights and will look to both inflict the first defeat of Saunders career, and teach him some manners for the first time in his life.
🏏 Live Cricket Streaming VPN

Disaster has struck and the masterpiece that was the 2021 IPL schedule is no more. After an outbreak of positive tests, many players made the decision to withdraw from this season’s competition and the BCCI stepped in and suspended play while India attempts to get a handle on Covid-19. The hope is that the tournament will be able to resume later in the year but for now we must say goodbye to the IPL.
All is not lost though Cricket junkies, the second test between Zimbabwe and Pakistan is available to you beginning on Friday. Pakistan won the first test by an innings and 116 runs and will be aiming to repeat that performance this time around.

🖥️ Sky Sports Golf Live Streaming & Catchup
It’s the Wells Fargo Championship from the wonderfully named Quail Hollow Golf Course this weekend, with Phil Mickelson setting the early pace with a seven under par round of 64 to give himself a two stroke lead. One of the many tournaments that fell foul to Covid in 2020, it was last won by Max Homa in 2019 and often attracts many of the games top players. Past winners include Vijay Singh, Jim Furyk, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy who is the only two time winner. With an $8.1mil overall purse, including just over $1.4mil to go to the winner, it’s a well paid weekend for those taking part.

The Madrid Open is well underway as clay season continues in the Tennis world. Unsurprising Rafa Nadal, the greatest clay court player of all time, is going strong and has advanced to the quarter finals where he will face Alexander Zverev, the number five seeding the second quarter final. Before them number three seed Dominic Thiem will take on John Isner, best known for winning the longest tennis match ever played, an 11 hour marathon against Nicolas Mahut at the 2010 Wimbledon Championship. The other quarter-finals feature Alexander Bublik vs Casper Ruud and number eight seed Matteo Berrettini against number 16 seed Cristian Garin.
On the Women’s side of things, the final is set for Saturday with number one seed Ash Barty, who has established herself as the number one player in the world in the post-Serena Williams era, will face off against number five seed Aryna Sabalenka. Barty is the more established clay court player, having won the French Open in 2019 before sitting out last season due to the pandemic, and will be a heavy favourite to defeat her Belarussian foe.
