When you think of a word to describe this clash, the term ‘juicy’ could well be used. Both of these were two of the favourites to win the tournament and they now face off in a bid to be in the Final. It’s Cristiano Ronaldo vs. Alexis Sanchez, for goodness sake!

Things are hotting up in the U21s Euros over in Poland, and, with the Under-20s winning the World Cup a couple of weeks ago, the pressure is on England’s Young Lions to come up with the goods in Europe. However, to reach the Final, they must defeat the old enemy. It’s also worth noting that there’s no guarantees of winning the Final either, as Spain and Italy both battle it out to be in the last two.

It's hard to believe we're at the end of Royal Ascot but the show goes in and we've got the Qatar Goodwood Festival to look forward to in a few weeks so there's no time to rest on our laurels.

This is it. Enough of the talking, enough of the dire performances, it’s time for Warren Gatland’s Lions to step up to the mark for this first test against the All Blacks at Eden Park in Auckland.

Both of these sides will have high hopes of winning the tournament, but if Italy are to stand any chance, they’ll need to beat the Germans and hope for a favour elsewhere. The pressure is on for a squad which contains AC Milan’s Gianluigi Donnarumma and the highly rated trio of Daniele Rugani, Domenico Berardi and Federico Bernadeschi.

How time flies! It's Day 4 of Royal Ascot already!  A pretty quiet day for us on Friday with just two runners so I hope it's a case of quality over quantity. 

Thoughts on our runners on are below:

Formula 1 | Azerbaijan Grand Prix | Race Preview and Tips

Lewis Hamilton rocks up in Azerbaijan in confident mood and hoping to build on his victory in last week's Canadian Gran Prix. We're TOP PRICE GUARANTEED on the Brit, but can he cut the gap to Vettel even more by climbing to the top of the podium here?  

Football | Germany v Chile | Confederations Cup | Preview and Tips

Two of the pre-tournament favourites clash in this mouth-watering class as Germany and Chile go head-to-head, a place at the head of the table on offer. With neither team really shining in their opening games, both will be eager to put down a marker for the rest of the competition.

Football | Slovakia U21s v Sweden U21s

Seperated by just a point, Slovakia and Sweden will both be looking to cement their place in the knockout stages here. With so much at stake, this could be a rip-roaring match unencumbered by fear.

Strap yourself in, our pulsating preview is just the taster...

Richard Hannon | Son of the Stars to shine at Ascot

We turn our attentions to Day 3 of Royal Ascot and I think we have some decent chances among them.
