Six Nations Rugby: England v Wales
Always a huge game for both sides this should be an occasion to savour given the excellent try-scoring record of both teams in recent history. Wales have lost several of their 2017 Lions contingent to injury but have some good young talent to take their places.

BT Sport 1 HD
Premier League: Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal
One of the keenest rivalries in all of sport as the North London derby kicks off at Wembley. There is little separating the teams in the Premier League table which should make for an intense encounter.

Six Nations Rugby: Scotland v France
Scotland enjoyed a great summer tour and autumn series and are now determined to deliver further evidence  of their progress under coach Gregor Townsend during the 2018 Six Nations.

Premier League: Chelsea v West Bromwich Albion
The Baggies look to be heading for a relegation dogfight at the end of this season and are unlikely to gain much comfort from this trip to Stamford Bridge.

International Cricket - Tri-Series: New Zealand v England
They may have lost the Ashes Test series in pretty abject fashion but England are no slouches when it comes to the Twenty20 version of the game and will undoubtedly be competitive in this Tri-Series which will see them in action against both the Black Caps of New Zealand and Australia.

UEFA Champions League: Last 16, 1st Leg - FC Basel v Manchester City
City fans couldn’t have wished for a more comfortable draw for the Last 16 of the UEFA Champions League and will expect their team to progress against a fairly average Swiss side who finished up as runners-up to Manchester United in Group A ahead of CSKA Moscow and Benfica. 
 
Tuesday February 13
7.45pm
BT Sport HD
UEFA Champions League: Last 16, 1st Leg - Juventus v Tottenham Hotspur

UEFA Champions League: Last 16, 1st Leg - FC Porto v Liverpool
On paper this is a kind draw for Liverpool but Jurgen Klopp will be wary of allowing any complacency to creep into his side’s preparations for this two-leg battle against the FC Porto. The Portuguese side qualified with the fewest points of any of the six clubs Liverpool could have faced and conceded a total of 10 goals during the group stages.

UEFA Champions League: Last 16, 1st Leg - Chelsea v Barcelona
The Blues find themselves with a nightmare draw as they take on one of the aristocrats of Champions League football in Barcelona. Their task will be made all the more arduous given that the second leg will take place at the Nou Camp. On the plus side for the reigning Premier League Champions, Barca superstar Lionel Messi has never scored against Chelsea in his career. 
 
Sunday February 25
2.05pm
Sky Sports PL HD
Premier League: Manchester United v Chelsea
United manager Jose Mourinho will welcome his old team to Old Trafford and will be out to gain revenge for the 1-0 defeat meted out to his side at Stamford Bridge earlier this season. The Blues have given up on their title defence but would love a win here.
