Saturday 10 October

Petrolheads, set your alarms for an early start on Saturday morning as a feast of motorsport across the weekend begins with the early stages of Day 2 from the WRC's stop in Italy.

The first broadcast stage begins at 6am on BT Sport Extra 3 HD running for two-and-a-half hours before coming back on air at 9am on the same channel.

We'll also have a must-see AFL semi-final play-off between the Geelong Cats and Collingwood from The Gabba at 9.30am on BT Sport 1 HD as both teams seek to remain in the hunt for this year's AFL flag.

If MotoGP is more your bag, you can tune in to BT Sport 2 HD from 11am as qualifying begins live from the Bugatti circuit with the world's top riders hoping to secure pole position ahead of Sunday's pivotal race.

At midday, get your first footie fix for the weekend from the Women's Super League as winless Tottenham Hotspur welcome unbeaten Manchester United to The Hive.

 

Spurs made a number of high profile acquisitions in the summer, including World Cup-winning US superstar Alex Morgan, and will be keen to pick up their first victory of the new season to shake off their early season woes.

United, however, made some impressive signings of their own, picking up Morgan's World Cup winning team-mates Christen Press and Tobin Heath during the transfer window.

At 1pm on BT Sport 1 HD and BT Sport Ultimate, the Gallagher Premiership play-offs get underway as Lee Blackett's in-form Wasps take on Pat Lam's resurgent Bristol Bears.

Wasps won all but one of the eight games after the restart and will be a formidable match for a Bears side with one eye on the Challenge Cup final later this month.

Following straight after that match on the same channel, title favourites Exeter Chiefs take on Bath looking to remain on track to secure their first championship since 2017.

But Bath, powered by England internationals Sam Underhill and Anthony Watson, will be no pushovers as they seek to win their first crown in more than 20 years.

BT Sport's Fight Club bursts back into life on Saturday evening as Frank Warren brings championship boxing to your screens with a British title showdown between Liam Williams and Andrew Robinson.

Williams, nicknamed 'The Mean Machine', will be hoping to make a statement on what could be his last assignment before securing a world title shot against WBO king Demetrius Andrade.

Overnight on Saturday, we'll be heading back to Fight Island in Abu Dhabi for another belting UFC Fight Night headlined by Marlon Moraes v Cory Sandhagen.

On the cusp of title contention, the two bantamweight rivals trade leather hoping to bump the other back down the rankings and secure a shot at incumbent king Petr Yan's 135lb belt. 

Sunday 11 October

A super Sunday on BT Sport begins with action on MotoGP race day at the Grand Prix of France!

Catch the warm-ups at 7.45am on BT Sport 2 HD before the show gets underway on the same channel at 9.30am. 

We're expecting a race to rememeber from the Bugatti circuit with points to play for in one of the most wide open championship races in recent memory.

Can Fabio Quartararo, victorious in Spain last time out, strengthen his grip on top spot - or will we see yet another unexpected winner?

There's more from the WRC's stop in Italy throughout the morning on BT Sport Extra 1 HD, full details of which can be found on our What's On page.

And at 2pm on BT Sport 1 HD, we'll bring you more from the Women's Super League as Chelsea face Manchester City at Kingsmeadow.

The Blues made their intentions clear this summer as they shelled out a world record fee to bring Pernille Harder to west London and they've made an impressive start to the season with the Danish striker in tow.

Two wins and a draw have put them in third after three games but they are level on points with their visitors Man City, who sit in fifth on goal difference.

City brought England superstar Lucy Bronze back to the UK following her move from Lyon this summer and look a serious challenge to the title after adding the likes of Rose Lavelle and Alex Greenwood to the squad too.

And if you're still clucking for some more women's football to see out your weekend, head over to BT Sport 2 HD to watch French giants Paris Saint-Germain take on Montpellier at 4pm.
