19:45, Sky Sports 1: Scotland v Germany – Nothing other than a victory over the reigning world champions will realistically be enough for Gordon Strachan’s Scots. See our betting preview here, with two 11/10 suggestions offered.

19:45, Sky Sports 2: Republic of Ireland v Georgia – Ireland haven’t won any of their last three matches at home and a failure to beat Georgia could leave their hopes of qualifying for Euro 2016 in jeopardy. Ladbrokes are top price on the Ireland victory at 8/15.


14:00, Sky Sports 2: England v Australia – England find themselves 2-0 down in this series after 59 and 64-run defeats. They have won five of their last six one-dayers at Old Trafford though, dating back to 2007. It is 13/8 that England win the third ODI of this series.

19:45, ITV: England v Switzerland – With England already qualified for Euro 2016, all eyes will be on Wayne Rooney as he bids to become the first Englishman to ever score 50 international goals. England are 7/10 to beat Switzerland and extend their Group E record to eight wins from eight.

20:00, Sky Sports 5: Reading v Ipswich – A victory for Ipswich would take them top of the Championship for the best part of at least 24 hours, but they lost both meetings with Reading last season 1-0.

20:00, Sky Sports 1: Wigan Warriors v Hull FC – Wigan did the double over Hull FC in the regular Super League season another victory in the Super 8s would leave them in a strong position of cementing a place in the semi-finals at the close of the campaign. Hull have little to play for.


12:45, BT Sport 1: Everton v Chelsea – Chelsea scored six early in the season at Goodison Park last year and they need similar levels of inspiration to recover from a slow start to the current campaign.

13:30, Sky Sports 1: Sunderland v Spurs – The hosts will he hoping that Jermain Defoe continues to pack his scoring boots to net against his former club as the Black Cats looks to climb off the bottom of the Premier League.

16:00, Sky Sports 1: Leicester v Aston Villa – It was a home win in all three matches between these midlands rivals last season, but Villa’s only league success so far this campaign came on the road.
