Premier League

Leeds play host to Tottenham in the first of two exclusive BT Sport offerings this weekend, as Ryan Mason's men look to keep their top-four hopes alive.

The 29-year-old has acquitted himself well to life in the dugout so far, after being thrust into the hot seat following Jose Mourinho's dismissal last month.

Mason has won two from two in the top flight - a 2-1 victory over Southampton and a 4-0 thrashing of basement boys Sheffield United - to become the youngest coach ever to taste triumph in a Premier League game.

The win over The Blades featured a hat-trick from on-loan Real Madrid man Gareth Bale and Mason will hope his former team-mate can replicate that form at Elland Road.

The interim boss will be out to make it three from three when he pits his wits against one of the most impressive coaches on the planet - Marcelo Bielsa.

Leeds were caught out on the reverse fixture at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium back in January when they bombed forward - as they always do - only to be caught out by then-Mourinho's team.

Bielsa's side were soundly beaten by Brighton last time out and, while his side have long assured themselves of safety, the Argentine will be keen to ensure their first season back in the Premier League in 16 years doesn't peter out.

Premier League on BT TV

Match previews and how to watch every game this weekend.

Then, just three days after they were dumped out of the Europa League by Villarreal, Arsenal return to the Emirates in domestic action against Sam Allardyce's doomed West Brom side.

The Gunners are languishing in mid-table following a disappointing season under Mikel Arteta but will hope to avoid the embarrassment of finishing in the bottom half of the table by collecting some points in their final four matches.

Arsenal have happy memories from the reverse fixture against The Baggies in December, when they produced a dazzling performance in the snow to thrash Sam Allardyce's side 4-0 at The Hawthorns.

West Brom have collected eight points from their last five games but Big Sam has never won a Premier League match at Arsenal in 14 attempts.

In fact, the former Sunderland and West Ham boss has tasted defeat to The Gunners on 17 occasions in the Premier League - more than any other opponent he's faced.

Gallagher Premiership

The race for the semi-finals hots up this weekend with just five rounds left in the regular season.

Our coverage of all six top-flight games kicks off on Friday night when Sale Sharks, currently in third on 55 points, play host to European Challenge Cup finalists Leicester Tigers.

The Sharks won a thriller away to Worcester Warriors last time out and will be keen to back that up under the Friday nights of the AJ Bell Stadium.

As ever there's a feast of top-flight English rugby on Saturday, starting with Northampton Saints at home to Gloucester.

Victory in the East Midlands derby over Leicester Tigers last time out kept Saints in the race for the top four as they sit four points behind Harlequins with just five weekends left in the regular season. 

Round 18: Gallagher Premiership

Match previews and broadcast details for all six matches this weekend.

Defending champions Exeter Chiefs return to Sandy Park this weekend, a fortnight on from downing league leaders Bristol at Ashton Gate.

Buoyant after landing a psychological blow on the nearest challegers to their crown, Exeter will be looking back up that performance against lowly Worcester as they bid to make sure of a home semi-final.

The second installment in our Saturday 3pm double bill sees Newcastle Falcons play host to London Irish with both teams looking to halt a worrying slump in form.

Falcons’ last win in the league came at the end of February, a six-game losing streak that has seen Dean Richards' newly-promoted side go from top-four hopefuls to struggling bottom-dwellers.

Saturday’s final game is a blockbuster West Country derby as Bath entertain Bristol Bears at the Rec. 

Hosts Bath will be desperate to return to winning ways after their European hopes were ended for another season by Montpellier in the Challenge Cup semi-finals.

The final game of the weekend makes for box-office viewing as two of the most attacking sides in English rugby go toe-to-toe at the Stoop.

Harlequins have scored the most points of any team in the league, while Wasps showed just how lethal they can be, scoring 39 points in a thrilling victory over Bath in round 17.

Women's Super League - Final day

Sunday is all about the conclusion to this season's Women's Super League as Chelsea chase a historic quadruple.

The Blues will finish top of the table for the fourth time if they match, or better, closest rivals Manchester City's result on the final day - with both games live on BT Sport.

With the League Cup already won, the Blues will face Barcelona in the Women's Champions League final on Sunday 16 May, live on BT Sport, before a last-16 Women's FA Cup tie against Everton on Thursday 20 May as they look to sweep all before them.

Ahead of their pivotal clash with Reading on Sunday, Blues boss Emma Hayes believes winning the title would be her "best" achievement as a manager.

"We've been unbelievable all year and I think we've been the dominant team throughout the season," Hayes said.

"It has been the strongest [season in WSL history], it will probably rank as the best. If you look at the number of additions that Man City, Everton, Manchester United plus Arsenal brought in this year, it is not like teams haven't spent money.

"[There is] quality and depth across the league. Every team is stacked."

UFC Fight Night: Rodriguez vs Waterson

Women’s UFC flyweight standouts Marina Rodriguez and Michelle Waterson take centre stage this Saturday in the main event at UFC APEX in Las Vegas.

Rodriguez (13-1-2) is coming off a technical knockout victory over Amanda Ribas at the UFC 257 back in January.

This card is must-watch!

Here are four reasons why you can't miss this weekend's event.

The 34 year-old Brazilian blasted her way into the Octagon with a first-round finish over Maria de Oliveira Neta on Dana White’s “Contender Series” in summer 2018.

As for Waterson (18-8), she’s looking to claim her second straight win after capturing a split-decision victory over the rough-and-tumble Angela Hill last September.

“The Karate Hottie” is ranked three spots below Rodriguez at No. 9 but could find herself back in the mix with a standout performance this weekend in “Sin City.”

Also competing at the UFC Vegas 26 event are welterweight veterans Neil Magny and Geoff Neal.

Elsewhere on the card, Maurice Greene and Marcos Rogerio de Lima hook ‘em up in heavyweight action, while Diego Ferreira and Gregor Gillespie try to settle their business at 155 pounds.

Ligue 1 & Bundesliga

The race to be crowned champions of France and Germany is going down to the wire as we approach the business end of the season on the continent.

With just six points separating the top four clubs in Ligue 1, there's never been a better time to give French football a go and we're showing no fewer than seven live games this weekend to get you started.

On Friday night, league leaders Lille will be looking to extend their one-point advantage over defending champions Paris Saint-Germain when they take on fifth-placed Lens.

Saturday afternoon sees Lyon host Lorient as they attempt to close the gap on Monaco in third, before the weekend comes to a fitting conclusion with PSG's trip to Rennes on Sunday evening.

Dumped out of the Champions League by Man City earlier this week, Mauricio Pochettino, Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and co can focus all their attention on reeling in Lille as they go after a record-equalling 10th Ligue 1 title.

Over in Germany we've got six live games for you to enjoy with Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig and Borussia Monchengladbach all in action.

With seven points separating top-of-the-table Bayern from RB Leipzig, can Julian Nagelsmann sign off in style by chasing down his future employers Bayern? Or will the Bavarian giants edge one step closer to a ninth straight Bundesliga title? 

And much more…

We’ll also bring you live football from the A-League and the National League - plus the latest action from Round 8 of the Aussie Rules season.

Not to mention a whole heap of motorsport, plus MLB and NHL action Stateside.
