πŸ’ 3:00: New York Rangers – Calgary Flames, NHL regular season

Intrigue: Will Panarin and company break Calgary’s streak?

Calgary suddenly jumped onto the playoff scene when everyone had already written them off and won four games in a row. Now they are just three points from the top eight and Nazem Kadri’s phrase about β€œa pack of hyenas that can kill a lion” has become popular. On this trip, the Lights managed to face the West leader, Boston, and today they will try their luck against the Rangers, the third team in the conference. The leader of the “blue shirts”, Artemy Panarin, also has local tasks: the day before being expelled from the top 5 of the league, he needs to regain lost positions. Additionally, Artemy needs to score two goals to tie Alexei Zhamnov on the all-time list of Russian snipers (he currently has 247 goals).

β€œArtemy is one of the candidates for the Hart Trophy:

Two Russians are among the top 5 candidates for the NHL season’s MVP award according to theScore

πŸ€ 3:00: Cleveland Cavaliers – Philadelphia 76ers, NBA regular season

Intrigue: Will Cleveland stumble in the regular season?

The Cleveland Cavaliers are gaining momentum in the Eastern Conference. The Club, coached by Donovan Mitchell and Evan Mobley, has already climbed to second place in the East and is in excellent form. The Ohio team cannot be defeated for nine straight games, and in the last 20 games of the regular season, Cleveland lost only three times. A simply incredible result for JB Bickerstaff’s team. Now the Knights face the Philadelphia 76ers, who have fallen to fifth place in the standings after the injury of leader Joel Embiid. Can Tyrese Maxey and newcomer Buddy Hield stop the Cavaliers?

How did Cleveland get to second place in the East?

Magnificent transformation of Cleveland. How did an NBA club rise to second place in the East in a month?

πŸ€ 4:00: Milwaukee Bucks – Denver Nuggets, NBA regular season

Intrigue: Will Giannis and Lillard defeat the NBA champions?

The Milwaukee Bucks’ head coaching change so far has been more of a bad decision than a good one. The club, led by Doc Rivers, won only two games out of seven played in the NBA regular season. The Stags confidently beat one of the outsiders of the Eastern Conference, the Charlotte Hornets, in their last game, but now they will face the current NBA champions, the Denver Nuggets. Nikola Jokic and company have rarely lost lately. At the same time, the center is the main favorite in the fight for the season’s most valuable player (MVP) award. Can Rivers find Denver’s weaknesses to beat their opponents?

Milwaukee’s problems in the NBA:

Milwaukee is in terrible shape. Was it necessary to change coaches during the NBA season?

πŸ’ 6:00: Vegas Golden Knights – Minnesota Wild, NHL regular season

Intrigue: Will Kaprizov achieve another club achievement?

In the previous game, Kirill Kaprizov set a new record, becoming the first player in Minnesota history to score at least 20 goals in four consecutive seasons. The goal against Pittsburgh was the game-winning goal, and the next game-winning goal will be the 20th of his career and will make him the ninth player in club history to reach this mark.

Kirill’s album was the cherry on top of Marc-AndrΓ© Fleury’s celebration:

“We couldn’t lose.” Kaprizov scored and set an all-time record for Minnesota

πŸ€ 6:30: Los Angeles Clippers – Minnesota Timberwolves, NBA regular season

Intrigue: who will be stronger in the game among the leaders of the Western Conference?

Trading James Harden turned out to be the right decision for the Los Angeles Clippers in the long run. Tyronn Lue’s team, after a not very successful start to the 2023/2024 season, is now second and one victory behind the Minnesota Timberwolves, leader of the Western Conference. Both clubs are very strong teams. The Sailboats have an excellent set of players who can take down any defense in the league and the Wolves, in turn, put an emphasis on defensive actions. Let’s see which is stronger: the defense of some or the attack of others.

Who showed up at the NBA trade deadline:

“They have a chance to play in the NBA Finals.” Who performed better at the trade deadline?

🎾 14:00*: Erika Andreeva (Russia, Q) – Ekaterina Alexandrova (Russia, 14), Doha, second round

πŸ’¬ Match with text broadcast

*The match schedule may change and will be confirmed.

Intrigue: how will the third Russian derby of the tournament end?

In the category of the Doha tournament there were nine Russian tennis players and in the first round two Russian derbies were played: Erika Andreeva – Diana Schneider and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova – Daria Kasatkina. So in the second round, our athletes will continue to push each other out of the way. This time Andreeva Sr. will fight Ekaterina Alexandrova. The girls had never played with each other before. The winner of the third round will cross the grid with one of the Iga Swiatek – Sorana Kirstea couple.

Ekaterina almost won the title in Linz:

Alexandrova lost the title battle to the TBS champion. Ostapenko won his second trophy of the season

🎾 14:00*: Marta Kostyuk (Ukraine) – Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (Russia), Doha, second round

πŸ’¬ Match with text broadcast

*The match schedule may change and will be confirmed.

Intrigue: how will the first meeting between Kostyuk and Pavlyuchenkova end?

After defeating her partner Daria Kasatkina, Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova will face Ukrainian Marta Kostyuk in the second round in Doha. The tennis players had not seen each other before. In the third round, the winner will face the couple Marketa Vondrousova – Gretje Minnen.

Anastasia is performing well this season:

Alexandrov and Pavlyuchenkova reached the semi-finals in Linz! Will there be a Russian final?

πŸ’ 17:00: β€œSalavat Yulaev” – β€œAvangard”, KHL regular championship

πŸ’¬ Match with text broadcast

Intrigue: Will Boucher approach Mozyakin?

Both Salavat Yulaev and Avangard have already secured participation in the playoffs, but the question of who will win the Chernyshev division remains open. Both teams are in excellent form and with only three points difference, it promises to be a hot match. If we talk about individual players, you should definitely keep an eye on Reed Boucher, who follows Sergei Mozyakin’s sniping record. After five goals in the last three games, he has very little left to repeat the unique achievement of the former Magnitogorsk captain.

Will the American take away one of the records for the best sniper in KHL history?

🎯 19:10: Biathlon – World Cup 2024, women’s individual race

Intrigue: Will Julia Simon take her fourth gold at the 2024 World Championships?

Julia Simone is a true star of the 2024 World Cup. In Nove Mesto, the Frenchwoman won three golds in three races: mixed relay, sprint and pursuit. The next start is the individual race. This season, Simon had an uneven performance in this discipline: 31st and second place. Despite this, Julia will try to get her fourth gold at the 2024 World Cup.

Julia Simone is the true queen of the World Cup. It is simply impossible to stop her!

“This is crazy”. The Frenchwoman ended the intrigue in the women’s pursuit at the Biathlon World Championships

πŸ’ 19:30: Ak Bars – Neftekhimik, KHL regular championship

πŸ’¬ Match with text broadcast

Intrigue: how will the last Tatarstan derby of the regular season end?

“Neftekhimik” can breathe: KHL and FHR decided not to satisfy Sibir’s request to return points to him for violating the limit on foreign players. Now the fate of the playoffs is exclusively in the hands of the Nizhnekamsk team, which currently occupies eighth place and is two points ahead of Amur, but the Khabarovsk team still has one game less. Thus, the last Tatarstan derby of the regular season takes on additional weight. “Neftekhimik” needs a bloody nose to continue its successful streak (in the last four games it has scored seven out of eight points), while “Ak Bars” also needs a victory to secure a place in the playoffs and move away from its pursuers.

⚽️ 23:00: Copenhagen – Manchester City, Champions League, round of 16, first leg

πŸ’¬ Match with text broadcast

Intrigue: Will Manchester City achieve its first victory over its rival in Denmark?

It seems that everything is clear in this couple. On paper, City shouldn’t have any problems, especially since Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland are already fit. But there is a small chance. Manchester City have never beaten Copenhagen away from home, despite the teams only meeting each other twice in Denmark. In 2009, the rivals scored two goals in the Europa League and in 2022 they kept a clean sheet in the Champions League. On the other hand, Pep Guardiola and his team are unlikely to pay much attention to these statistics.

Guardiola does not believe that his team will win the treble this season:

Guardiola: There is a 99.9% chance that Manchester City will miss the treble.

⚽️ 23:00: RB Leipzig – Real Madrid, Champions League, round of 16, first leg

πŸ’¬ Match with text broadcast

Intrigue: how many goals will Real Madrid’s attack score in Germany?

Real Madrid faces the game in a very good mood. Last weekend, the Madrid superclub destroyed Girona (4-0) in the Spanish Championship and practically ended the intrigue. Almost no one doubts that the gold medals will go to the Real Madrid players. Leipzig started 2024 with three league defeats and has won just once in its last five tournament games. The favorite is obvious, but perhaps the hosts will spring a surprise?

Real Madrid came to the game with great adventures:

Real Madrid traveled to Leipzig by bus due to the strike at the airport
