⚽️1:00 p.m.: Kawasaki Frontale – Bayern, friendly match
Intrigue: Bayern prepares for the first full season with Tuchel
Bayern in the first pre-season game lost to Manchester City (2:3). Now Thomas Tuchel’s team gets a less serious rival. In Tokyo, Bayern will play Kawasaki Frontale. Given Bayern’s failure at the end of the last championship (the victory in the Bundesliga is Borussia’s credit), Tuchel is important to transmit his ideas to the players in the preseason. Before the start of the Bundesliga, a couple of weeks. Will Munich have time to get in shape?

⚽️ 13:00: France vs Brazil Women’s World Cup Group F Round 2
Intrigue: Brazil will reach the 1/8 final if they beat France
The French team went to the Women’s World Cup as one of the favourites, but failed to win in the 1st round, a goalless draw against Jamaica. The Brazilians lead Group F after the defeat of the Panamanian team 4-0 and, if they win, they will issue a direct ticket to the playoffs. Ari Borges, 23, showed off a lovely start: a hat-trick and an assist. The possible loss of the captain may affect the game of the French: defense Wendy Renard was preparing for the match in the individual program due to an ankle injury.

⚽️ 15:00: Krylya Sovetov – Dynamo, RPL, round 2
💬 Match with text streaming
Intrigue: Will Lichka get his first win as Dynamo head coach?
Dynamo had a bad start to the new season. In the first round, Marcel Lichka’s team lost to Krasnodar, and then in the Cup they lost on penalties to Pari NN. Clearly, this was not the start the leadership was counting on. The situation must be corrected in the match with Krylya Sovetov. Samarans in the RPL beat Akhmat and then lost to Baltika in the cup meeting. Igor Osinkin’s team has a chance to start the championship with two victories. Thus indicating immediately that the club is not going to fight for survival, as it did last season.

⚽️ 5:00 p.m.: Bournemouth – Atalanta, friendly match
Intrigue: Atalanta prepares for the season with Alexei Miranchuk
Atalanta already played a game in the preseason. Gian Piero Gasperini’s team defeated Pro Vercelli with a score of 6:0. Alexey Miranchuk did not appear on the field. But the Russian can play for Atalanta in England. The Italians will play abroad with Bournemouth. Miranchuk’s future remains in doubt. Torino and Verona cannot agree with Atalanta on the amount of the transfer. So, probably, Alexei will stay in Bergamo. Therefore, he is obliged to show his maximum at the Atalanta training camp.

⚽️ 17:30: Ural vs Pari Nizhny Novgorod, RPL, round 2
💬 Match with text streaming
Intrigue: for the first time will the teams score more than two goals in a head-to-head encounter?
Ural and Pari Nizhny Novgorod struggled for survival last season. Viktor Goncharenko’s team escaped, but the Nizhny Novgorod team got into the joint zone. But in the end, Pari NN turned out to be stronger than Rodina and stayed in the RPL. Ural started the new season with a win over CSKA, while Sergey Yuran’s team lost at home to Zenit. But Nizhny Novgorod looked good. Therefore, there is no clear favorite in the next match. “Ural” will play at home – a small factor in favor of Yekaterinburg. But the meeting can end in completely different ways. An interesting fact: in five head-to-heads, the teams have never scored more than two goals. Will it work this time?

🏎 5:30 p.m.: Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix speed race
Intrigue: will the weather play a role?
The Belgian Grand Prix is the next leg of the current F-1 season, which takes place with a separate qualifying and sprint race. Consequently, the results of the drivers in qualifying on Friday do not matter: on Saturday morning everything will start from scratch and then we will have a short race. It is clear that Max Verstappen and Red Bull are cast as favourites, but will the unpredictable Belgian weather stop them? The forecasts did not exclude rain on Saturday, so we can expect all kinds of surprises with rare visitors in the third segment and the top 8 of the sprint.

⚽️ 18:00: Sokol – SKA-Khabarovsk, First League, matchday 3
Intrigue: Will the Khabarovsk club get a third straight victory at the start of the First League?
SKA-Khabarovsk started the championship with two victories: they defeated Shinnik and Tyumen (both meetings – 2:0 each). And Sokol lost to Rodina (0:4), and then turned out to be stronger than Shinnik (3:2). Denis Boyarintsev’s team does not have the task of entering the RPL, but the team is unlikely to stop fighting for the top positions because of this. SKA-Khabarovsk, on the contrary, plans to increase, so you cannot make a mistake. Can Roman Sharonov’s team pull off a third straight win? It is unlikely to be easy, since the meeting will take place in Saratov.

⚽️ 20:00: Rostov – Zenit, RPL, matchday 2
💬 Match with text streaming
Intrigue: the main match of the second round of the Russian Premier League
An interesting meeting will take place in Rostov-on-Don. “Rostov” Valery Karpin will accept the current champion – “Zenith”. Last season, the southerners fought with St. Petersburg for gold, leaving the race at the end. Both clubs started the new championship with victories: Rostov beat Fakel (2:1) and Zenit beat Pari NN (2:0). The teams have big ambitions. “Zenith” wants the sixth gold in a row, and “Rostov” at least – to fight for medals. These top matches are a great test.

⚽️ 9:30 p.m.: Genoa vs Monaco, friendly match
Intrigue: Alexander Golovin’s team prepares to fight against PSG in Ligue 1
Monaco didn’t even qualify for European competition last season. Failure forced the bosses to change coaches: instead of Philippe Clement came Adi Hütter. Under him, Monaco have already claimed two wins in pre-season matches, beating Betis and Leeds. Golovin spent halftime in both games, but did not score with effective actions. “Genoa”, under the leadership of Alberto Gilardino, returned to Serie A. The next match is a good test for the Genoese and for “Monaco” – a field of experimentation.
