It's time. It's here...

Back for your weekly dose of Continental Breakfast, but we have a confession. This is not just the breakfast on the Saturday morning, where you're waking up from that horrendous hangover. Our action begins on the Friday night, when the evening's fun hasn't even begun.

It's the weekend, which can only mean one thing - the return of the Premier League and the StanJames.com Premier League Predictor Competition. Have fun, beat y

The magic of the EFL Cup makes a welcome return tonight and Wednesday as a host of former players take on their ex-employers up and down the country. A fantastic competition like this one is coming to it's climax as the race for this prestigous title heats up.

Who doesn't love a foursome? We have four of the best games this weekend from across Europe which may whet your appetite, so without us prattling on any further, take a seat at the table, get your knife and fork and tackle our latest Continental Breakfast.

BAYERN MUNICH VS. BAYER LEVERKUSEN | SATURDAY 26TH NOVEMBER | 5.30PM | ALIANZ ARENA, MUNICH, GERMANY | BT SPORT 2

Following a couple of great evenings of Champions League games, goals, glory and glorious failure in the case of Tottenham Hotspur, we're onto the Europa League - the bridesmaid to the bride, that box of Quality Street after the big Christmas dinner with all the trimmings. It's not quite like eating from the top table at a gala dinner, but you're not heading to McDonalds for tea, either.

Following last night's goal-fest in the Champions League, we can't wait for tonight's action. More goals, more eliminations, more progressions, just more of everything, really.

Matchday five kicks off on Tuesday night, which means squeaky bums all round for a host of teams. The competitions really starts to heat up now and we cannot wait. We'll now look at four of what - on paper, at least - look the best, and most intriguine matches of the evening, starting with a trip to that horrible place, that dump, that squalor that is Monaco, of course.

Atletico Madrid vs. Real Madrid, Manchester United vs. Arsenal, AC Milan vs. Internazionale, Borussia Dortmund vs. Bayern Munich. Do you get the feeling it's not going to be one of those quiet weekends, picnics in the park, pub lunches and all that?

*Sigh* "Not the Championship!" we hear you cry, but for us, it's one of the best divisions in the world when you look at the size of the clubs in the league and the high profile managers - Rafa Benitez at Newcastle, Reading have Jaap Stam, Mick McCarthy's been a character over the years, and let's not forget, England legend Steve McClaren is back at Derby County. "It's a cracking league!" as Cardiff boss Neil Warnock would say.

It's the weekend, which can only mean one thing - the return of the Premier League and the StanJames.com Premier League Predictor Competition. Have fun, beat your mates, beat us even, and win free bets and prizes!

We've picked three of the most interesting games from an evening of international football. Our picks include a Home Nation, the Euro 2016 runners-up and two giants of the international game.
