This week, there’s a sumptuous feast of top live action on BT Sport, including drama from the Premier League, a crunch tie from European rugby’s elite competition and unmissable tennis from the WTA.

 

But where’s the proof to go with this sporty pud? Read on to discover the events you don’t want to miss this week.

European Rugby Champions Cup: Gloucester v Munster

European Rugby Champions Cup: Gloucester v Munster

Friday 11 January, 7pm, BT Sport 2 HD (CH 528)

The penultimate round of the European Champions Cup pool stage sees Irish titans Munster travel to Kingsholm for an absolute doozy of a fixture. Both sides are battling for the top spot in Pool 2, but a defeat for either could give Castres a chance to pounce and claim one of the knockout positions ahead of the final round of matches. Game on.

 

Australia v India: First ODI 

Saturday 12 January, 2am, BT Sport 1 HD (CH 527)

With their hard-fought Test series done and dusted, Australia and India go head to head at the magnificent SCG in the first of three unmissable One-Day Internationals.

Women’s Super League: Arsenal v Chelsea

In the red corner you’ve got league leaders Arsenal, who have what would be a first title since 2012 firmly in their sights. In the blue corner you’ve got defending champions Chelsea, who are still in the mix for silverware and would give their hopes of clinching a second consecutive crown a huge shot in the arm with a victory here. Something’s gotta give…
