Getting ready for tonights Champions League games? If you are a soccer fan then the newest addition to Google might be something for you. Google announced that from now on, when searching for “UEFA Champions League” or simply “Champions League” you will get match scores and schedules in your search result. At the top under the website from the UEFA Google will place a OneBox. Behind each match there is al link to the specific match on UEFA.com. Above the OneBox there are links to Standings, Matches, Clubs and Statistics.
By clicking the link ‘Show more games’ you will see more matches that already have taken place and more upcoming matches. A very nice feature for if you want to search which teams are playing on what dates. At this moment this only works on Google.com and Google.co.uk. I´m not seeing it yet on local versions.
It was already possible to find information with Google about previous and next matches in local competitions for clubs also delivered by UEFA.com. For example if you search for FC Barcelona or AC Milan you will see the result from the last competition match and you will see when the next match will be including date and time.
Have fun if your are watching one of the games tonight!
Now that the matches started it turns out that Google is showing the scores almost realtime.
