Sunday’s Sport: London and Rome take centre stage

There’s more Premier League and Six Nations action to look forward to on an intriguing Sunday of sporting action.

Italy have the daunting task of hosting France in rugby union’s annual northern hemisphere tournament, while Tottenham Hotspur welcome reigning Premier League champions Manchester City to north London.

Sunday’s other top-flight game sees two former champions of England go head to head, as Nottingham Forest welcome Leeds United to the City Ground.

There’s UK and Irish racing to look forward to with meetings from Leopardstown, Musselburgh and Hereford, which can all be followed via bet365’s Sports Live Streaming service.

With France heading into the 2023 Six Nations on the back of a 13-game winning streak, Italy will be up against it on Sunday.

The Azzurri will have been boosted by some landmark wins last year, as they secured a win in Wales, before beating Australia in Rome.

France are a different proposition and themselves will be brimming with confidence as they look to get their Grand Slam title defence off to a bonus-point winning start in the Eternal City.

It was Bonfire Night the last time Leeds United secured a win in the Premier League and Jesse Marsch’s side will be desperate to get back to winning ways at Nottingham Forest on Sunday.

A World Cup break has lengthened the wait but it has still been too long for the Whites to wait for a league win, as they look to pull away from the bottom three.

Recent FA Cup wins over Cardiff City and Accrington Stanley, along with a draw against Brentford in the league, has boosted morale at the Elland Road outfit in the last week.

However, pressure is still on Marsch to get results in the Premier League and Forest will be looking to add to the Whites’ wait for three points.

The Reds saw their EFL Cup journey come to an end in midweek with defeat to Manchester United in the semi-final second leg.

It’s a shorter turnaround for Steve Cooper’s side, who will be hoping to extend their three-point lead over Leeds in the table this weekend.

After back-to-back defeats to Southampton and Manchester United in the EFL Cup and Premier League respectively, Manchester City are looking like their former selves.

League wins over Tottenham and Wolverhampton were backed up by a 1-0 win over Arsenal in the FA Cup last time out.

In a quick turnaround between the two fixtures, City and Spurs lock horns again in the league on Sunday, with the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium the stage.

City ran out 4-2 winners in their last meeting on 19th January in Manchester and another high-scoring encounter might well be on the cards in this one.
