Wednesday's Sport: Champions League group stage concludes

Chelsea and Manchester City have already qualified for the last-16 as they prepare to play their final Champions League group games.

The Blues have wrapped up top spot in Group E, while the Citizens will finish at the summit of Group G as they continue their pursuit of a first-ever Champions League crown.

The Londoners play host to Dinamo Zagreb at Stamford Bridge, while City are at home to Spanish outfit Sevilla.

There are also five race meetings from across the UK and Ireland to keep in touch with via our Sports Live Streaming platform, while the Women's Rugby League World Cup sees two more matches and the WTA Finals continues in Fort Worth, Texas.

Champions League: Blues seeking Dinamo revenge

OddsChelsea 3/10, Draw 9/2, Dinamo Zagreb 17/2

Chelsea may have already secured the honours in their group, but they have some unfinished business with Croatian outfit Dinamo.

The Blues were beaten 1-0 in Zagreb in their group opener, with Mislav Orsic scoring the only goal of the game early on in the Maksimir.

Chelsea responded with a draw and three wins in their next four games and can relax a little as they have a massive Premier League London derby at home to Arsenal at lunchtime on Sunday.

N'Golo Kante, Reece James and Wesley Fofana remain on the sidelines for Graham Potter's side, while Kepa Arrizabalaga (foot) and Mateo Kovacic (calf) are unlikely to be risked.

Dinamo, meanwhile will be eager to impress, as they can still claim a place in the Europa League by winning at Stamford Bridge, while also seeing AC Milan beat FC Salzburg.

Champions League: City need to fire without Haaland

OddsMan City 2/9, Draw 11/2, Sevilla 11/1

Like Chelsea, Manchester City have made sure that they will finish top of Group G, but they will feel that they have something of a point to prove against visitors Sevilla.

The Citizens have drawn a blank in each of their last two Champions League outings - drawing 0-0 at both FC Copenhagen and Borussia Dortmund.

Pep Guardiola's side will be eager to improve on that stat, but they will have to do so without injured star striker Erling Haaland, meaning that Julian Alvarez will get an opportunity to shine.

When these two sides met at the Sanchez Pizjuan in early September, City romped to a 4-0 victory, with Haaland scoring twice, while Phil Foden and Ruben Dias also got on the scoresheet.

Championship: Six games on the agenda

As well as a wealth of European action, there are six games taking place in the Championship, including Burnley playing host to Rotherham United.

The Clarets have started to motor under new head coach Vincent Kompany, as they seek an immediate return to the Premier League, and will expect to take all three points at Turf Moor.

Also in action on Wednesday evening are Norwich City, who take on fellow promotion hopefuls Queens Park Rangers.

The Canaries ended a run of six games without a win last time out as they defeated Stoke City 3-1 at Carrow Road, while the R's have lost their last two matches on the road - going down 3-1 at Luton Town and 2-0 at Birmingham City.
