Five things to look out for this weekend

Another fascinating weekend of sport beckons, with football fans most likely to be interested in massive games in both the Premier League and Serie A.

Premier League: Chelsea aim to upset Arsenal

OddsChelsea 31/20, Draw 12/5, Arsenal 17/10

Saturday is a rare quiet day in the Premier League, but a packed Sunday features five matches, with standout games bookending the schedule.

A London derby gets things going as Chelsea look to cut their 10-point deficit to leaders Arsenal.

The Blues were run ragged in last weekend’s 4-1 defeat at Brighton, but bounced back by beating Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League and will now be aiming for a fourth home league win of the season against the rampant Gunners.

Mikel Arteta’s men have amazed with their consistency and may have an extra incentive to win at the Bridge, with Manchester City having the chance to go above them in the table when they face Fulham on Saturday.

Then, at 16:30 on Sunday, Tottenham will look to add to their feelgood factor against Liverpool.

Spurs dramatically claimed top seeding from Group D with Tuesday’s last gasp 2-1 win over Marseille and will look to keep tabs on the top two.

The hosts are 23/10 to triumph against a Liverpool side who have lost their last two Premier League matches, but who are 11/10 for the three points having beaten Napoli in midweek.

Juventus 21/10, Draw 12/5, Inter Milan 11/8

It is not all about the Premier League on Sunday, with Serie A headlining our European Soccer Streaming Highlights with not one, but two huge derbies.

At 17:00, fourth ‘hosts’ fifth as Derby della Capitale rivals Roma and Lazio meet at the Stadio Olimpico.

The Giallorossi have won four of their last five matches across all competitions, while it has been a different story for the Biancocelesti, who have lost their last two.

Roma have won the ‘home’ edition of this game without conceding in each of the last two seasons and a repeat of that outcome is available at 5/2.

Then at 19:45, Italy’s El Clasico takes place as great rivals Juventus and Inter Milan meet in Turin.

Juve were without 12 of their first team players as they lost 2-1 to Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday but Massimiliano Allegri will hope the spirit his threadbare side showed in that game can see them through.

Inter lost 2-0 at Bayern Munich 24 hours earlier, a result that ended a run of seven without defeat and are unbeaten in the pair’s last four meetings across all competitions.

International rugby: Autumn Nations Series ignites

Scotland’s narrow defeat to Australia felt like a nice way to start the Autumn Nations Series and, with that match having fallen outside of the international window, this weekend marks the start of the campaign in earnest.

Italy take on Samoa and Scotland host Fiji, both at 13:00 on Saturday, but things really get going when Wales go searching for their first win over New Zealand since 1953, while at 17:30, the world's number one-ranked team, Ireland, welcome South Africa.

Then, at 20:00, the lights go up at the Stade de France as France look to take another positive step towards next year’s World Cup on home soil against the Wallabies.

Finally, on Sunday, England kick off their campaign against Argentina at Twickenham.

Saturday also sees the Women’s World Cup semi-finals in the 15-player code, with England taking on Canada at 03:30 and hosts New Zealand lining up against France at 06:30.

After an entertaining group phase, the Rugby League World Cup really gets going on Friday with the first quarter-final taking place between Australia and Lebanon at 19:30 in Huddersfield.

The holders will be facing some familiar faces with the Cedars’ best players plying their trade in the NRL.

The winner will face the victor of Saturday’s 19:30 match between New Zealand and Fiji in Hull.

Before that, hosts England meet Papua New Guinea in Wigan at 14:30, but the tie of the round could be Sunday’s match between Tonga and Samoa in Warrington.

Tweaks to the eligibility rules have helped these sides become emerging forces in the global game.

Tonga triumphed 32-18 when the pair met in the pool stages in 2017 and are 8/15 to triumph against 6/4 Samoa who have failed to live up to their pre-tournament hype.

T20 World Cup: Can England do it?

OddsSri Lanka 7/2, England 1/5

The equation is simple for England at the T20 World Cup.

Australia’s four-run victory over Afghanistan on Friday means the reigning 50-over world champions will join the team they beat at Lord’s in 2019, New Zealand, in the semi-finals at the expense of the host nation if they win on Saturday by virtue of their superior net run rate.

In their way stands a resurgent Sri Lanka side who outclassed the Afghans by six wickets on Tuesday.

In-form Kusal Mendis has averaged 34.16 in the tournament and is 7/2 to be his team’s top batter, but England’s sheer strength in depth means they should win the match and therefore eliminate reigning champions Australia.

There are then three more games in Group 2 on Sunday, with India top on six points and South Africa second on five, one more than both Pakistan and Bangladesh.

With the leading duo facing Zimbabwe and the Netherlands, respectively, both will expect to progress to the semi-finals.
