With the important business of qualifying out of the way we thought we'd take a light-hearted look at tonight's friendlies, featuring the likes of Russia v Belgium, Republic of Ireland v Iceland, Portugal v Sweden, and France v Spain. Whilst the overriding sense may be one of European Unity, there's some tasty looking games there...

You know how entertaining England are to watch? Well following on from the impressive performance against Germany, the national side never play well in two consecutive games, so look forward to Lithuania's trip to Wembley and John Stones, Chris Smalling and Michael Keane all passing the ball around at the back without any real penetration.

With the international break in full swing, there’s no Premier League and Championship games to tune into. However, the good news is that there’s a full fixture list in both Leagues 1 and 2. We’ve picked out five of the most likely results from the 21 fixtures across Saturday, which will 100% come in!*


 

We've five fixtures across both League 1 and League 2 on Tuesday evening, and instead of just plucking three of the possible home bankers, we've opted to cover them all. We've got a troubled club actually winning and a striker who's yet to score against a certain opponent - despite being one of the top scorers in the division! Will the said frontman break his duck? Well, find out that and much more by reading on!...

An old classic fixture full of history, drama, goals that may or may not have been over the line, efficiency, non-efficiency, born winners, big disappointments, brilliance and frustration, the Westfalenstadion is the venue for this big midweek clash in the west of Germany.

This week's #ContinentalBreakfast takes you on a couple of trips to Spain to see if table-topping Real Madrid can win at Bilbao, who are extremely strong at home. Real's city rivals tackle fellow title contenders Sevilla in the capital as both look to chase down the top two in La Liga. Elsewhere, in France, Paris SG continue in their pursuit of Monaco at the summit, whilst it's all washed down with Hoffenheim vs.

We've Friday night football this evening, with two three out of the four selections fighting for automatic promotion or a play-off finish, with the other being in a precarious situation at the bottom of the Championship table. Can Sheffield Wednesday leapfrog opponents Reading into fifth place in the league, and will Huddersfield close the gap on the top two in England's second tier?...

Cheltenham's done for another year, the FA Cup is out of the way - for now - and Matchweek 29 is upon us, with a huge SEVEN Premier

The second batch of Champions League fixtures return to our television screens this evening, and one of the two includes the tie of the round from the first leg matches - Monaco and Manchester City. Will we see another goalfest in the south of France? Will it be pragmatic? Will it heck!

There's a full Football League fixture list this midweek, which means one thing and one thing only - our Football League Hotpicks are back! We've plucked out five picks which could well come off. We've analysed the form book, the table and much, much more to find a fantastic five to make your midweek marvellous... if they come off! Have we missed an obvious pick? Put one in that definitely won't happen?

Two Champions League games on Tuesday evening, one with English interest, whilst the other could feature potential winners. It's really heating up now in the competition. Will we see another Barcelona-esque comeback, can Leicester do what many considered the impossible - not that they've done anything like that before - before a ball was kicked in their first leg against Sevilla. Answers to those questions and more, below...

Everybody's expecting three of the big heads (Manchester City, Arsenal, Tottenham) and one of Chelsea or Manchester United to battle it out for a place in the Final when the semis come around, but with this being the FA Cup and NO replays for this stage of the competition, perhaps this won't be all cut and dried. Can Lincoln City cause the upset of all upsets? Will Millwall get yet another penalty and knock Spurs out of the competition?
