🏀 3:30: Philadelphia 76ers – Boston Celtics, NBA regular season

Intrigue: who will become the sole leader of the Eastern Conference?

The teams share first place in the East, with eight wins and two losses. If the success of the Celtics was expected, since this team was considered one of the main favorites for the title, the results of the Sixers are surprising. Many thought that all the drama with James Harden would affect the entire team, but the absence of the controversial defender only gave more freedom to other players. Tyrese Maxey took a big step forward. Who will become interim conference leader after the game?

🏒 3:30: Carolina Hurricanes – Philadelphia Flyers, NHL regular season

Intrigue: Will Andrei Svechnikov score the first goal of the season?

Carolina is one of the most productive teams in the East: only Tampa and Toronto score more goals than the Hurricanes. At the same time, Russian Hurricanes forward Andrei Svechnikov, who has already played seven games after recovering from injury, has not yet scored a single goal. Can he hit the target of Philadelphia, which, with the same number of games, loses even less than Carolina?

🏀 6:00: Los Angeles Lakers – Sacramento Kings, NBA regular season

Intrigue: whose winning streak will be broken?

Both teams started the season unevenly, but have looked good in recent games. The Lakers, although they suffer when LeBron is not on the court, already look better than at the beginning of last season. The wonderful atmosphere in Sacramento ended in a dramatic series with Golden State, now the team is focused on building on its success, but the competition in the West is too great. Both teams are currently on three-game winning streaks. The teams already met two weeks ago, where the Kings were stronger in overtime. Who will win this time and whose winning streak will end?

🏒6:00: Vancouver Canucks – New York Islanders, NHL regular season

Intrigue: Will Vancouver rise to the top in the West?

The Orcas, unexpectedly for many, started the season on a positive note: the Canadian club is confidently among the leaders of the Western Conference, losing only 4 out of 15 matches. Thanks to Vegas’ loss in their last game, the Canucks have a chance to move into first place in the West by beating the Islanders, who have already lost five games in a row.

🎾 16:30*: Novak Djokovic (Serbia, 1) – Hubert Hurkacz (Poland, ALT), ATP Final Championship, group stage

💬 Match with text broadcast

*The match schedule may change and will be confirmed.

Intrigue: can Djokovic make the playoffs after losing to Sinner?

In the final round of the Red Group preliminary phase, world number one Novak Djokovic will play with reserve Hubert Hurkacz, who replaced the injured Stefanos Tsitsipas in the draw. Even a victory in two sets does not guarantee the Serbians’ access to the playoffs; Much will depend on additional indicators and, most importantly, on how Jannik Sinner and Holger Rune will face each other in the next match. Furthermore, in certain situations, Novak can leave the group even if he loses to the Pole. Previously, Djokovic and Hurkac played six times and the Serb won every time. This year he also distinguished himself in Dubai and Wimbledon. Who will be stronger in Turin?

🏒 19:00: Ak Bars – Dynamo Moscow, KHL regular championship

💬 Match with text broadcast

Intrigue: Will Ak Bars be able to break the losing streak?

Kazan is one of the favorites in the East, but is now going through a bad period: for the first time this season it lost three games in a row and fell to fifth place in the conference table. Dinamo Moscow will come to visit them, having missed the victory in the match against Spartak and allowing the red and whites to take first place in the West. To regain the lead, the blue and white need to beat the Leopards, who will strive to rehabilitate themselves from their recent defeats and wait for Spartak’s defeat.

🏒 19:30: “Spartak” – “Salavat Yulaev”, KHL regular championship

💬 Match with text broadcast

Intrigue: will the guests win this confrontation again?

Last season the teams met twice and the visiting club won both times. In September 2022, Spartak won in Ufa with a score of 3:1, and a month later the team from the capital of Bashkortostan came to the capital and took revenge with a score of 5:2. The red and whites have not lost on their ice since the beginning of November, when they were defeated by CSKA. Perhaps Alexei Zhamnov’s team can change the trend of last season; after all, leadership in the West is at stake.

⚽️ 22:45: Slovakia – Iceland, Euro 2024 – qualification, group J, 9th round

Intrigue: Will Slovakia decide the fate of second place or stumble?

The Slovaks have their moment of truth. They are second in the group, but have not yet qualified for the Euro Cup. To do this you have to beat Iceland at home and not be nervous: then Luxembourg will no longer catch up with them. 95% of the guests will not have a continental championship. To get there, it is necessary to beat the Slovaks with a better goal difference in head-to-head matches and also wait for Luxembourg to fail in the last two rounds. It’s hard to believe this.

⚽️ 22:45: Liechtenstein – Portugal, Euro 2024 – qualification, group J, 9th round

💬 Match with text broadcast

Intrigue: how many will Ronaldo score?

Cristiano, of course, may not play at all with the outsider of the group, but historically the national teams of the dwarf states are his clients. For example, in the first round he sent one kopeck to Liechtenstein. This meeting does not have any tournament intrigue, and therefore both teams can enjoy football: the first should not be upset about the lost goals, and the second certainly will not be able to do without experiments.

⚽️ 22:45: Luxembourg – Bosnia and Herzegovina, Euro 2024 – qualification, group J, 9th round

Intrigue: Will Luxembourg continue competing?

It must be admitted that the team from the dwarf state maintained excellent chances of reaching the European Championship almost until the end. Now these chances have diminished and largely depend on the group’s rival: Slovakia. To, at least in theory, continue qualifying for the Euro Cup, Christopher Martins and his partners must definitively defeat Bosnia and wait for the Slovaks to fail. You can be sure: despite the conventions, the team’s mood will be incredible.

🎾 23:00*: Jannik Sinner (Italy, 4) – Holger Rune (Denmark, 8), ATP Final Championship, group stage

💬 Match with text broadcast

*The match schedule may change and will be confirmed.

Intrigue: Will Sinner make it through the group stage without losing?

After two victories at the start of the final tournament, Jannik Sinner practically guaranteed access to the playoffs. The Italian will be content with a victory with any result over Holger Rune or even a defeat, as long as Djokovic does not defeat Hurkacz in straight sets. But the favorite of the Italian public does not think about slowing down. It is true that in personal meetings he is inferior to Holger: 0-2. Rune was stronger in the semifinals at Sofia 2022 and Monte Carlo 2023. But even before Turin, Yannick had not achieved victories over Djokovic.
