Whether you fancy footy from East London or prefer the French variety, BT Sport has got it all – and then some
BT Sport round-up
Despite it feeling like only yesterday since we rang in the new year, March is already making way for April, and the weather is alternating between bracing wind, sweltering heat and the occasional shower of cats and dogs.
With that in mind, it’s probably best that you tune in to West Ham’s clash with Everton from the comfort of your sofa, where a warm mug of tea or a crisp can of pop are just a short walk or exceptionally trained butler/dog away.
Then, when the English footy is over, tune in to a wealth of sporting action from France, the US of A and even Argentina as BT Sport delivers another smörgåsbord of sporting goodness.
Premier League: West Ham v Everton
Saturday 30 March, 5pm, BT Sport 1 HD (CH 527)
As well as being a clash between two teams positioned smack-bang in the middle of the table, this matchup also presents a battle of wits between the teams’ managers. As Manuel Pellegrini’s West Ham host Marco Silva’s Everton, both sides will be hoping a win can trigger runs that could see them challenge for a place in Europe next season.
UFC Fight Night: Edson Barboza v Justin Gaethje
Saturday 30 March, 11pm, BT Sport 2 HD (CH 528)
Expect plenty of fireworks when these two lightweight contenders collide in Philadelphia. With Barboza and Gaethje ranked sixth and seventh in the lightweight rankings respectively, a win for either could see them stake their claim to challenge for Khabib Nurmagomedov’s lightweight belt… as soon as the Russian fighter’s nine-month ban is over, that is.
WTA: 2019 Miami Open Final
Sunday 31 April, 10.30am, BT Sport 3 HD (CH 529)
Ahh, Miami. Sun, sand and, if (like us) you’re a fan of Michael Mann’s 2006 remake of Miami Vice, Colin Farrell’s luscious locks. Ahem. Where were we? Right, the Miami Open Final. Tennis’ best and brightest go head to head on Sunday in a matchup you definitely won’t want to miss, with the winner bagging themselves some serious points in the world rankings and a fairly hefty cash prize.
World Rally Championship: Tour de Corse
Sunday 31 March, 11am, BT Sport 2 HD (CH 528)
The third round of motorsport’s most competitive championship concludes this Sunday on the twisting roads of Corsica, with reigning champion and home favourite Sébastien Ogier looking to reclaim the championship lead with a win on home soil. It’s already shaping up to be another tight battle for the title, with Toyota’s Ott Tänak showing the form that almost bagged him the championship last season. Whatever the outcome – you won’t want to miss this final Super Stage. Just remember your ear plugs.
MotoGP: Grand Prix Of Argentina
Sunday 31 March, 6.30pm, BT Sport 2 HD (CH 528)
If it’s two-wheeled action that butters your crumpets, the Grand Prix of Argentina is not to be missed. After opening with the glitz, glamour and floodlights of Qatar, MotoGP heads to the secluded and historic Autódromo Termas de Río Hondo circuit. Five-time champ Marc Márquez will no doubt be gearing up to get his title defence back on track, but to do so he’ll have to overcome a talented field.
Ligue 1: Toulouse v PSG
Remarkably, 24 wins and one defeat in their opening 27 Ligue 1 matches constitutes a bit of a disaster at PSG. Thrilling as it is to watch a team smash their way through a season with seemingly no credible opposition, there comes a point where you just have to relish the chance to watch a side so imperious even Napoleon would likely have said, “Huh, they’re pretty good.” We’re not saying that Toulouse don’t stand a chance, but after watching PSG of late, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the score on this one might end up looking closer to that seen in a rugby match.
