To see, to read, to listen to on Eurosport

Tennis, obviously with the Australian Open. Felix Auger-Aliassime is currently battling against Lehecka. But keep your popcorn: from 9 a.m., the Sinner-Tsitsipas clash could be worth its weight in gold.

Come on, it’s a gift, it’s the point of the night.

The point of the night: Khachanov had to work but it was worth it

Skiing, too, with the slalom in Kitzbuhel (10.30 a.m.) and this question: will the Blues win this season? Weaned from victories, the Tricolores bet on Clément Noël, real luck in slalom. Also note the women’s Super G in Cortina (11:30 a.m.).

The continuation of the 16th finals of the Coupe de France. While the big players have ensured so far, Auxerre, Lille, Nantes are in danger (6:30 p.m.) while Brest challenges Lens in the evening (9 p.m.).

The question: Will Arsenal keep up the pace?

They thought they had made the break last weekend against Tottenham but the Premier League is not conquered so easily. While Manchester City are back to five points (with one game more) and challenge Wolverhampton at 3 p.m., Arsenal could approach their duel against Manchester United with only a two-point lead over the Citizens. The shock of this 21st day breathes the 2000s and the classification of the two teams does not say anything else. In full revival thanks to Erik ten Hag, MU is no longer the naive and too limited team of recent years. The situation is similar for the Gunners, exciting and impressive leaders, carried by an Odegaard MVP version. In short, at 5:30 p.m., it should be a treat. And the match not to be missed of the weekend.
