Google does the Champions League (mostly)

Tonight Manchester United play Barcelona in the Champions League. Google has noticed. Manchester is Google's second city in the UK.

The following logo appears on Google.co.uk (Manchester United), Google.es (Barcelona), Google.it (the final is being played in Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Italy), Google.fr, Google.de, Google.gr, Google.nl, Google.be, Google.no, Google.se, Google.dk, etc..

It does not appear in Google.ie. Why Ireland isn't in the spirit of this international European match isn't clear. Google's most significant presence in Europe is in Ireland.
