🥊 4:00 a.m.: Jake Paul (USA) vs. Nate Diaz (USA), professional boxing

Intrigue: scandalous blogger will break another MMA star?

Jake Paul was a successful blogger, but then he decided to become a boxer as well. And he did it! Under the guidance of top trainers, Paul picked up skills and began calling former UFC stars into the ring. Few people believed in Jake, but he took down such tough guys as Ben Askren, Tyron Woodley, and Anderson Silva one by one. Paul suffered his only loss to professional boxer Tommy Fury. Now the blogger is waiting for another former MMA superstar: the formidable Nate Diaz. Will Paul beat a veteran?

⚽️ 5:00 am: Netherlands v South Africa, round of 16 of the Women’s World Cup in South Africa

Intrigue: will African dominance continue at the World Cup?

African teams have made themselves known at the World Championships in Australia and New Zealand. Three teams from the continent reached the playoffs at the same time: South Africa, Morocco and Nigeria. In the round of 16, the winners of the African Cup will face the Netherlands, runners-up in the world, who beat the United States in the group stage. In the quarterfinals, the winner of this match will be the Spanish team, which today faced Switzerland 5:1.

⚽️ 12:00 pm: Sweden v USA, Women’s World Cup Round of 16

Intrigue: The 2023 World Cup is full of sensations. What happens if the current champions leave the tournament after 1/8?

Alex Morgan is confident that the US team will be able to win the third consecutive World Cup, but the performance of the Americans in the group stage does not inspire confidence. Second place and the lowest score for the United States in the history of their participation in the World Cup. Sweden easily passed the first part of the tournament in the group with Italy, Argentina and South Africa, but the match with the American team could be the first serious test. In the quarterfinals, the winner of this match is expected by the Japanese team, which beat Norway 3:1.

🏉 2:00 p.m.: Slava — Lokomotiv-Penza, Russian Rugby Championship, matchday 2

Intrigue: Will Lokomotiv return the championship game?

The reigning champion Lokomotiv Penza, although he started the 2023/2024 Russian Championship with a victory, there were too many doubts about the game of Alexander Yanyushkin’s wards. This time the rival will be Slava Moscow, who lost in their first game this season. But Muscovites are always very uncomfortable opponents, and the weather in the capital is forecast to be hot. The railway media updated the composition with respect to the last meeting. Will it help them show off the championship game everyone expects of them?

⚽️ 2:00 p.m.: Leicester City – Coventry City Championship Matchday 1

Intrigue: will the updated Leicester cope with the Premier League contender?

In 2016, Leicester became Premier League champions for the first and last time. And everything would be fine, but seven years later the team collapsed in the second most powerful division of English football. In the off-season, Leicester received almost €90 million from the transfers of James Maddison (Tottenham) and Harvey Barnes (Newcastle). In addition, in the condition of free agents, the team left Yuri Tielemans, Caglar Soyuncu and Daniel Amarti. In the summer, Enzo Maresca took over as head coach. The one who helped Guardiola at Manchester City. It is true that it cannot be said that Leicester was lucky with the first rival. Still, last season Coventry fell within a step of promotion to the Premier League after losing on penalties to Luton Town.

⚽️ 4:00 p.m.: Akron – Alania, First League, Matchday 4

Intrigue: will the leader of the First League extend the winning streak in the game with the closest pursuer?

The battle of the best teams of the “Best League in the World”. And that is. Last season, Akron gave Moscow clubs a nightmare in the Russian Cup, but this season they got off to a good start in the First League. Three wins in three games, nine points, first place in the table, goal difference +9. However, Alania is only two points behind and is in the group of Akron’s closest chasers. The Southerners insultingly flew past the joints for unsportsmanlike reasons, but this season they hope to shut down the gestalt and still return to the RPL. So far, neither one nor the other has lost. Maybe on Sunday this series will be interrupted for someone.

⚽️ 17:30: Baltika – Fakel, RPL, round 3

Intrigue: Will Evseev ruin his opponent’s mood in Kaliningrad’s first home RPL game in 25 years?

Baltika returned to the top division of Russian football for the first time in 25 years. By the will of the calendar compilers, he played the first three games of the season (two in the RPL, one in the Cup) as a visitor. And now the first home game in the “tower” in 25 years. You understand what the mood of Sergei Ignashevich’s team will be. In addition, in rivals – a direct competitor in the struggle for survival. After two rounds, neither Baltika nor Fakel scored any points. Vadim Evseev’s team started overall with three losses (including the Russian Cup) and dreams of breaking the black streak.

🏆 ⚽️ 18:00: Manchester City vs Arsenal, FA Super Cup

💬 Match with text streaming

Mystery: who will win the FA Super Cup in the club game with a huge cost of compositions?

This weekend’s main game (may RPL fans forgive us). In addition, the winner will receive a trophy. Last season, Arsenal led the Premier League for a good part of the season, but then the team ran out of gas. And there was the “City” busted so that nobody could stop it, including the rivals of the Champions League. In the summer, Arsenal invested a lot of money in strengthening the team: they spent 230 million euros on the transfers of Declan Rice, Kai Havertz and Jurrien Timber. City paid just under €120m for Joshko Guardiola (not to be confused with Guardiola) and Mateo Kovacic. Both clubs have now crossed the astronomical mark of €1 billion in total team value! By the way, Arsenal haven’t beaten City for three years. In the last eight head-to-head games, success has been constant on Guardiola’s side. Will the London club break a losing streak?

⚽️ 19:00: Zenit – Dynamo, RPL, 3rd round

💬 Match with text streaming

Mystery: Will Zenit lose points in the second game in a row?

Last week Sergei Semak’s team disappointingly missed out on victory in Rostov-on-Don. In the last seconds, they “brought” a penalty into their own goal, and then they also lost their head coach. He said about a red card after the final whistle, so in the next match he will be on the podium. There are still too many questions for Dynamo. No one said it would be easy for Marcel Licka, but so far it’s been pretty sad. Three official matches in the season, two defeats, seven goals conceded. In the second round, the Blue and Whites lost the almost won match in Samara: the opponent turned 1:3 into 3:3 in the last minutes of the match. It feels like flashbacks to last season.

⚽️ 20:00: Sochi – Akhmat, RPL, round 3

💬 Match with text streaming

Mystery: will the Grozny club score the first points of the season?

Akhmat is one of three RPL clubs yet to score points in the new season. A dubious achievement, frankly. It is curious that Sergei Tashuev’s team lost both games at their stadium. Now he is waiting for an away match on the Black Sea coast. Sochi entered the season well: they beat Baltika (2: 0) in the RPL, “nailed” Fakel (3: 1) in the cup game. But the meeting with Krasnodar turned out to be a failure – 0:2. Akhmat’s opponent is far from the easiest, but perhaps Grozny will score the first points of the season away from home.
