🏒 3:00: Tampa Bay Lightning – Boston Bruins, NHL regular season
Intrigue: Can Tampa win three in a row for the first time this season?
Tampa’s game, according to Nikita Kucherov, is still far from ideal, but at least the team has begun to improve its situation. The victory over Chicago was followed by a comeback against Edmonton, and for the second time this season the Lightning were able to win two games in a row. Kucherov himself is doing his best and producing glasses like a Stakhanovite. Can he and the Lightning take on East leader Boston?

🏒 4:00: Dallas Stars – New York Rangers, NHL regular season
Intrigue: Will Panarin update his own record?
After addressing the matter on October 13, Artemy Panarin does not even think about stopping or at least taking a break. The Russian forward has already broken the club’s record for the longest scoring streak since the start of the season (15 games), and the probability that in the game against Dallas he will again leave the ice without points is very high. Panarin could also become the first Rangers player since Jaromir Jagr to extend his multiple point streak to six games.

🏀 6:00: Golden State Warriors – Houston Rockets, NBA regular season
Intrigue: Can Golden State break its losing streak?
Despite Stephen Curry’s return from injury, Golden State continues to lose and is currently on a six-game losing streak. Draymond Green remains suspended and will not be able to participate in the game. The failed period left the team in tenth place in the Western Conference. Houston, for its part, lost two games in a row after an excellent winning streak. However, the Rockets still look decent in terms of play, at the level of a playoff team. Will the Warriors suffer a seventh consecutive loss?

🏒 17:00: Traktor – Avangard, KHL regular championship
Intrigue: Will “Avangard” take its winning streak to 10 games?
“Avangard” is now the hottest team in the league, having won nine games in a row, pulling its hair from seventh to second place in the Eastern Conference and is already actively stepping on the heels of the leader Magnitka. Compared with the beginning of the season, only heaven and earth! Can they take their winning streak to 10 games, something that hasn’t happened since the 2010/2011 season, when Avangard finished the regular season with 18 wins in a row?

🏒 19:30: Lokomotiv – Spartak, KHL regular championship
Intrigue: Will Goldobin be the first to score 50 points this season?
Nikolay Goldobin has no equal in the KHL! He has spent less than half of the regular season and has already repeated and then surpassed Spartak’s goal record in a championship without problems. In the match against Lokomotiv, the forward could become the first player to score 50 points this season. At the same time, it will be possible to return the favor to Lokomotiv for their home defeat in October.

🏒 19:30: Dynamo M – Ak Bars, KHL regular championship
Intrigue: can Dynamo take revenge on Ak Bars and break the losing streak?
The teams met in Kazan less than a week ago and today the confrontation will continue in Moscow. Both Dynamo and Ak Bars should come out loaded to the max: both teams are going through difficult times. “Barsy” has only achieved one victory in its last five games: over Dynamo. In that game, Vadim Shipachev reached the incredible mark of 900 points in the KHL. For the first time this season, the blue and white lost three games in a row; It should be noted that Nikita Gusev’s nine-goal streak also ended in this period. But he is also close to his milestone: he only has three points left to reach 550 points in the league.

⚽️22:45: Croatia – Armenia, EURO 2024 – qualification, group D, matchday 10
Intrigue: Will Modric reach Euro 2024?
One of the main intrigues of the last round is the situation in group D. Turkey has already booked a place in the Euro Cup, but two teams, Croatia and Wales, are fighting for second place. The bronze medalists of the 2022 World Cup have a much more pleasant situation: they are two points ahead. The Croatians must not play worse than Wales in the last round. Zlatko Dalic’s team hosts Armenia, which has already lost its chances of reaching the European Championship. If the Croats lose or draw and the Welsh win, it will be Wales who will go to the Euro Cup. Then you can’t relax.

⚽️22:45: Wales – Turkey, EURO 2024 – qualification, group D, tenth round
Intrigue: Will Wales get a ticket to the Euro Cup?
Wales find themselves in a situation heading into the final round where not everything depends on them. The team needs to defeat Turkey at home, which has already qualified for the European Championship. But even this does not guarantee Welsh qualifications. Croatia needs a ruling in the home game against Armenia. Only then will Wales enter the first two groups. The chances are not the highest, but they are still there. Therefore, the British have a duty to fight.

⚽️22:45: Greece – France, EURO 2024 – qualification, group B, 10th round
Intrigue: how will France play after the biggest victory in history?
In the last match, the French put on a show with Gibraltar. Didier Deschamps’ team scored 14 (!) unanswered goals. This is the biggest victory in the history of the French team. The team has already qualified for the Euro Cup and is simply enjoying football. Ahead is a trip to Greece. The Greeks will no longer reach the Euro Cup through qualification (but through the Nations League), so we cannot expect a difficult match. Both teams will likely field mixed teams and play for fun.

⚽️22:45: Austria – Germany, friendly match
Intrigue: Will Germany make amends for its defeat against Türkiye?
Germany is the host of the next European Championship, so it did not play in qualifying for the tournament. However, he maintains friendly meetings. With varied success. The national team has fever on the eve of the European Championship at home. Hans-Dieter Flick has already been replaced as coach by Julian Nagelsmann. And in three matches under his leadership, the Germans achieved only one victory, and in the last match they lost at home to Turkey with a score of 2:3. There is a chance to rehabilitate in the next match against Austria. And it’s time to develop the optimal combinations: the teams will not have many opportunities to meet before the Euro.
