General: Five things to look out for this weekend

From Premier League football to PGA Tour golf, there is plenty to get stuck into this weekend as the sporting action comes thick and fast.

Along with football and golf, the T20 World Cup in Australia also begins, while the racing world will wave goodbye to one of the very best in Europe and you can follow the action on bet365's Sports Live Streaming platform.

Saturday will mark the final racecourse outing for the William Haggas-trained Baaeed, who is aiming to make it a perfect 11 wins from 11 starts when turning up at Ascot.

The son of Sea The Stars will be gunning for the Champion Stakes at the Berkshire track and it will be tough work for his eight rivals to stop him.

Baaeed handled the step up to 1m2f with ease at York in the Juddmonte International, winning by over six lengths, and another commanding performance could be on the cards.

England will look to build on their opening Women's Rugby World Cup victory over Fiji when they take on France in Pool C.

The Red Rose thrashed Fiji 84-19 in their first match to put down an early marker and they are 4/9 to lift the trophy for the third time.

France thumped South Africa 40-5 to start their quest for glory in style but they will have to put in an even better performance if they are going to chalk up another victory on Saturday.

The first match of the T20 World Cup begins in the early hours of Sunday, with Sri Lanka's clash against Namibia beginning at 05:00.

Sri Lanka won the tournament in 2014 when staged in Bangladesh, overcoming India in the final, and they are 20/1 to join the West Indies as the only team to have won the trophy twice.

Kusal Mendis has scored 836 runs in his T20i career and he is 9/4 to be his side's top batter against Namibia, who are making their second tournament appearance following their 2021 debut.

Premier League: Can Liverpool stop City?

OddsLiverpool 13/5, Draw 3/1, Man City 10/11

Liverpool have struggled to match their standards from previous seasons and Jurgen Klopp has already ruled his side out of the Premier League title race ahead of Sunday's visit of Man City.

However, the Reds did thrash Rangers 7-1 in the Champions League last time out and that is a welcome confidence-boost for a side that were failing to fire on all cylinders.

Klopp's side still face a tough test against reigning champions City, who remain undefeated across all competitions this season and will welcome back a rested Erling Haaland to their starting XI.

The Norway international was rested for the European clash in midweek and he is 8/11 to find the back of the net anytime at Anfield, while he is 11/4 to score the first or last goal.

Haaland has already scored 15 goals from nine league matches since joining City in the summer, including hat-tricks against Nottingham Forest, Crystal Palace and Manchester United.
