Tuesday's Sport: Champions League, Cricket and Rugby League top the agenda

Champions League match-ups are the highlights on the sporting list on Tuesday, with both Chelsea and Manchester City in action away from home.

The Blues face a tough test at FC Salzburg and while City may have already qualified for the knockout stages, there will be plenty of attention on Erling Haaland’s return to Borussia Dortmund.

Hosts Australia face Sri Lanka in the one match taking place at the T20 World Cup and there is also one game in the Rugby League World Cup, while there are four race meetings available to watch on our Sports Live Streaming platform.

OddsFC Salzburg 7/2, Draw 3/1, Chelsea 8/11

Chelsea may top Champions League Group E with two games to play, but they have little room for error, with all four teams still hoping to make it through to the knockout stages.

FC Salzburg are the closest challengers to Graham Potter's side and they will be hopeful of taking all three points at the RB Arena on Tuesday evening.

They are the only team yet to taste defeat in the section and are also unbeaten at home in their last 40 games in all competitions - a run which stretches all the way back to February 2021.

However, the visitors will also arrive on a high, with the Blues having pieced together an eight-match unbeaten run which began with a 1-1 draw at home to Salzburg in mid-September.

The impressive Noah Okafor was the goalscorer for the Austrians that evening and he is 7/2 to find the net at any time on Tuesday evening.

Champions League: Haaland hoping to haunt Dortmund

OddsBorussia Dortmund 39/10, Draw 10/3, Man City 8/13

Norwegian striker Erling Haaland has been nothing short of a sensation since moving to Manchester City from Borussia Dortmund in the summer, scoring 22 goals in just 15 appearances in all competitions.

He is as short as 4/6 to score at any time against his former employers, while Julian Alvarez is 13/10 to get on the scoresheet if given an opportunity to show what he can do.

Haaland netted the winner when the two sides met in Manchester in mid-September, with BVB showing up well in a narrow 2-1 defeat.

Their form since then has been somewhat sketchy, with just three wins in eight games in all competitions, however a 5-0 Bundesliga thumping of Stuttgart at the weekend will certainly have boosted morale in the home camp.

T20 World Cup: Baggy Greens must show major reaction

OddsAustralia 2/9, Sri Lanka 10/3

As both hosts and defending champions, there is plenty of pressure on Australia to impress at the T20 World Cup.

However, their campaign got off to a worrying start as they were swept aside by 89 runs at the SCG by New Zealand, the team they beat in the tournament final last year.

Next up is a meeting with Sri Lanka in Perth, with the Islanders having fought their way through the initial group phase, before dismissing Ireland by nine wickets in their Super 12s opener.

And the Baggy Greens can take nothing for granted, with 25 previous T20I clashes between the two sides having yielded 14 wins for Australia, ten for Sri Lanka and one tie.
