France vs Scotland 2019

France vs Scotland : Gregor Townsend makes four changes to Six Nations starting XV.Peter Horne has replaced Finn Russell for the trip to Paris, while there is also room for Blair Kinghorn, Magnus Bradbury and Nick Grigg.Gregor Townsend has made four changes to his Scotland team to play France, with Peter Horne given the no.10 shirt.


Hornes replaces Finn Russell for the Six Nations Test in Paris, full-back Blair Kinghorn and centre Nick Grigg have also been given the nod, while fit-again back-row forward Magnus Bradbury has earned a recall following his Edinburgh comeback last weekend.

All four changes to Gregor Townsend’s team were enforced by injury following Scotland’s defeat by Ireland.

Russell was ruled out with a head injury he suffered playing for Racing 92 while Glasgow trio Stuart Hogg, Huw Jones and Ryan Wilson were all injured against Ireland.

Bradbury made a try-scoring, man-of-the-match return from a four-month absence through shoulder problems as Edinburgh beat Dragons on Friday night.

Townsend is optimistic the latest injuries will not derail his side’s preparations.

“Injuries create opportunities for others to show what they can do and, throughout the past couple of seasons, we’ve seen a number of players really step up,” he said.

“All of the players coming in started against Argentina in the summer, which ranks as one of our best ever away performances.

“On top of that there is cohesion forged through familiarity at club level – Magnus in the back row lines up with club-mate Jamie Ritchie, and Pete Horne and Nick Grigg are either side of Sam Johnson in the backs.”

Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend says players should not have to turn out for their clubs on a Sunday when there is a Six Nations fixture the following weekend as it gives them too little time to recover from injury.

Townsend’s comments come after Scotland fly-half Finn Russell suffered a head injury playing for French club Racing 92 last weekend, ruling him out of Saturday’s clash with France.

“It’s disappointing he played a Sunday before a test match. That was always one of the risks of him playing in France,” Townsend told reporters.

“I’m just disappointed that the French Federation, or the Top 14, had games on Sundays, which makes it very difficult to recover from any injury in a short time. If you have a head injury it is almost impossible to play the following week.

“With the HIA (Head Injury Assessment) process… if anybody is suspected of having a head injury then they go through that process and it effectively rules them out six days later.”

Townsend said countries such as England have the advantage of picking only home-based players, who can be rested from club duty before a Six Nations game.

“It is not a level playing field going into such an important tournament, that our players do play between Six Nations games,” Townsend added.

“But it is what it is, we can’t change it.”

England are targeting a first Grand Slam since 2016 and have looked in superb form, beating the Irish in Dublin before steam-rollering the French at Twickenham.

But they will run into a Welsh side who have title ambitions of their own, with victories over France and Italy extending their current winning streak to eleven matches.

When the sides met in last year’s tournament, England won a tight Twickenham contest 12-6.

Wales host England at the Principality Stadium on Saturday evening in a match that will go a long way to deciding who wins the 2019 Six Nations.

Warren Gatland’s hosts welcome their neighbours to Cardiff on the verge of history having equalled their longest winning run of 11 Tests.

However, those victories have not all been pretty and Wales were forced to fight back from 16-0 down to beat France on the opening night before a second-string secured a lacklustre win over Italy last time out.

By contrast, England cross the Severn Bridge in fine form having beaten last year’s champions Ireland in Dublin before a six-try demolition of France at Twickenham.

Under Eddie Jones England are unbeaten against Wales and a fifth successive victory over Gatland’s side would leave only Scotland and Italy standing between them and the Grand Slam.

When is the match?

Wales and England face off on Saturday evening, with kick-off scheduled for 4:45pm GMT.

Bayern Munich vs Hertha Berlin

Bayern Munich vs Hertha Berlin: Niko Kovac’s Best Available Die Roten Lineup.Bayern Munich host Hertha Berlin at the Allianz Arena on Saturday as Die Roten aim to close the gap on league leaders Borussia Dortmund. Niko Kovac’s side are three points behind Dortmund, and a win over Berlin will see them go level on points with BVB atop the BuLi table.


Bayern came from behind twice to beat Augsburg 3-2 in their last Bundesliga, before drawing 0-0 with Liverpool in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie on Tuesday.

1. Goalkeeper & Defenders

Manuel Neuer (GK): Neuer has been back to his best since returning from his lengthy injury spell. The club captain has only conceded 22 goals in 20 Bundesliga appearances this season.

Joshua Kimmich (RB): Kimmich has grown drastically over the past two seasons and has firmly established himself as one of the best players in Germany.

Niklas Süle (CB): Süle has become Bayern’s main centre back this season, keeping Jerome Boateng on the bench.

Mats Hummels (CB): The defender was back to his brilliant best against Liverpool on Tuesday night.

David Alaba (LB): The Austrian has kept himself injury free this season, having missed just one game.

2. Midfielders

Javi Martinez (CM): Martinez should come in to the starting line up again to cover the injured Leon Goretzka. He is set to make his 15th appearance of the season.

Thiago (CM): Thiago should partner is fellow Spaniard in the heart of the midfield. Bayern have won the last 11 BuLi games Thiago has started.

James Rodriguez (CAM): James has now started in Bayern’s last four games as the Colombian is finally looking settled in Germany.

3. Forwards

Serge Gnabry (RW): Gnabry has had a tremendous season so far, and looks to be an apt successor to Arjen Robben on the right flank.

Robert Lewandowski (ST): The Polish striker has scored 25 goals in 31 appearances in all competitions this season. Lewandowski only needs three more to overtake Claudio Pizarro as the division’s all time leading non-German scorer.

Kingsley Coman (LW): The French winger has played in 11 consecutive Bundesliga matches since returning from his ligament injury and should start this one.

Barcelona vs Sevilla

Barcelona vs Sevilla Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions.The Spanish champions have been misfiring of late and we are backing their trip to the capital of Andalusia to produce few goals this weekendErnesto Valvderde takes his Barcelona side to the Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan on Saturday to face Sevilla in traditionally one of the toughest La Liga fixtures of the season.


Barca recorded a goalless draw at Lyon in the Champions League on Tuesday, meaning the Blaugrana have now failed to score in three of their last four away games in all competitions.

One of those games was at Sevilla, where they suffered a 2-0 Copa del Rey defeat a month ago before turning the tie around at Camp Nou.

Latest odds

Sevilla enjoyed a 2-0 home win over Lazio on Wednesday in the Europa League at bet365 offer them at 7/2 (3.50) to claim another success. Barca are available at 19/20 (1.95) with the draw at 3/1 (4.00).

Watch and bet live on Sevilla vs Barcelona

bet365 customers in the UK can watch and bet live on this fixture. Your account must be funded or active (have placed a bet in the last 24 hours) to enjoy the action.

Team news

Lionel Messi has started Barca’s last two games after a slight injury and although he has not looked at his best, his importance to the side means he is likely to play. The Catalans remain without midfielders Arthur and Rafinha.

Sevilla are missing widemen Nolito and Aleix Vidal, while Sergio Escudero picked up a knock in the win over Lazio and is out. Jesus Navas is also a doubt for the hosts.


Sevilla consistently cause Barca problems when facing them at the Sanchez Pizjuan.

In 2015 the Andalusians won this fixture 2-1 and in 2018 Barca needed two goals in the last two minutes to draw 2-2, while last month Sevilla were comfortable winners in the cup.

The La Liga champions have looked surprisingly blunt in attack in recent weeks and two goals scored in their last four games is not a normal return for Barcelona.

Sevilla, though, have looked tired which is only natural given their season started in July with Europa League qualifiers.

Tips and predictions

Each of Barca’s last four matches have seen under 2.5 goals including their trip to Sevilla four weeks ago. A repeat is available at 6/4 (2.50) and this is a selection that has also paid out in seven of Sevilla’s last ten home games.

In their way are Sean Dyche’s Burnley, battling to move clear of the relegation zone after a slow start to the season.

Spurs are flying after thrashing Borussia Dortmund and with injured players such as Harry Kane and Dele Alli nearing a return, they may just be peaking at the right time.

The visitors are fresh too, with 10 days of rest since their Champions League exploits.

Burnley themselves have had two weeks off since beating Brighton away, which should mean both sides are capable of setting a high tempo.

Welcome to Indy Football’s live coverage of Burnley vs Spurs.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have quietly kept pace with the leaders Man City and Liverpool.
Victory here, after a lengthy rest since their Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund, will see them move within two points.

Bournemouth vs Wolves live streaming preview

Two of the Premier League’s most entertaining teams meet at Dean Court.

Bournemouth were beaten 3-0 at Anfield last time out so have only won 4 of their last 18 games in all competitions.

Despite this, they’re 11th.

Wolves meanwhile are targeting Europe.

Nuno Espírito Santo’s side were held to a 1-1 draw by Newcastle but they do remain seventh in the table.

Last weekend, they beat Bristol City 1-0 to progress through to the FA Cup quarter-finals.

This should be an entertaining clash.

PSG vs Nimes

PSG vs Nimes Live: PSG will be looking to continue their charge towards the Ligue 1 title when they welcome Nimes to the French capital on Saturday afternoon. PSG sit 15 points clear of second-placed Lille with a game in hand, while Nimes have performed above expectations in France’s top flight this season, with a total of 36 points leaving them in 10th position.


Proving far too strong for the remainder of the division, PSG have won 21 of their 24 league matches this season – losing just once – to sit atop the table on 65 points heading into their 25th Ligue 1 fixture of the 2018-19 campaign. Thomas Tuchel’s side have not really needed to break a sweat in the league this season, scoring 74 times and conceding just 14. The capital giants are 15 points clear of second-placed Lille and also have a game in hand, not that it will matter too much as they close on their eighth Ligue 1 crown.

Since suffering their first league defeat of the season against Lyon earlier this month, PSG have won five straight matches, conceding just once. That run of form included league victories over Bordeaux, Saint-Etienne and Montpellier, in addition to a 2-0 success away to Manchester United in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie. It does appear that the league will take care of itself this season. Indeed, only a stunning collapse will prevent Tuchel’s side from landing the title from this position, while they are also live in the Coupe de France.

The Champions League is the trophy that the French giants really want this season, though, and they are in a good position to reach the quarter-finals having recorded an impressive victory at in-form United on February 12. The second leg of the European match will take place on March 6, but PSG have three games before that, facing Nimes and Caen in the league, in addition to a home fixture against Dijon in the Coupe de France.

The fact that PSG have been so impressive without Neymar and Edinson Cavani in recent weeks shows the depth of their squad, but it seems likely that the midfield will be strengthened in this summer’s transfer window. PSG have won all 13 of their home Ligue 1 matches this season – scoring 47 and conceding just five – which is an indication of the task facing Nimes on Saturday afternoon.

Promoted to Ligue 1 after finishing second in Ligue 2 last season, Nimes are playing top-flight football for the first time since the 1992-93 campaign and can be delighted with how they have performed this term. Les Crocodiles have won 10 of their 25 league matches this season, drawing six and losing the other nine to gain 36 points, which is enough for 10th position in the table entering the latest round of fixtures in France’s top flight.

Nimes are only actually two points off sixth-placed Montpellier, while they are a huge 16 points ahead of the relegation zone, suggesting that they will be able to enjoy at least one more campaign of Ligue 1 football. PSG are clearly the overwhelming favourites to collect all three points this weekend, but Nimes have taken nine points from their last three league matches, drawing with Montpellier before beating Nantes and Dijon in their last two.

Leicester vs C Palace

Leicester vs C Palace preview: Jamie Vardy set to return for Foxes.Watch in-game clips and highlights on the Sky Sports app.Jamie Vardy could return for Leicester as they look to end a six-match winless run in all competitions when they host Crystal Palace on Saturday (kick-off 5.30pm).Vardy was surprisingly left out of the starting line-up for the Foxes’ 3-1 loss to Tottenham last time out. He missed a penalty and then scored after coming off the bench.The Foxes have slipped down to 12th in the Premier League following a run of four defeats in their last five league matches.


“I think of course we need to join the performance with the right result,” said Leicester manager Claude Puel. “We need points, that is normal.

“We have two games at home and it will be important to find the results and confidence to continue our good work.”

Demarai Gray says Leicester needed a player like Youri Tielemans and it was important they signed him in January

Palace are one place and five points behind Leicester in the table.

They are unbeaten in their last five matches in all competitions, although they have also only won one of their previous eight league matches.

Palace boss Roy Hodgson will become the oldest-ever Premier League manager when he takes charge of the game.

A look at some of the key stats surrounding this weekend’s Premier League action

Team news

Ben Chilwell and James Maddison will be assessed.

The Leicester pair are suffering from minor knocks and are doubts for the game, but Nampalys Mendy (groin) is fit.

Marc Albrighton is likely to miss the rest of the season after hamstring surgery while Daniel Amartey (ankle) is also out.

Crystal Palace will be without injured defenders Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Martin Kelly.

Opta stats

  • Leicester lost this exact fixture 0-3 last season, but have never lost back-to-back top-flight home games against Crystal Palace.
  • Crystal Palace have won each of their last three Premier League games against Leicester, by an aggregate score of 9-0. They’ve only won more top-flight games in a row against Wimbledon (5), Southampton and Stoke (4 each).
  • Crystal Palace have won three Premier League away games against Leicester, only winning more on the road in the competition against Everton (4).
  • Leicester are winless in their last five Premier League games, last having a longer winless run in the competition in October 2017 (6).
  • Leicester have lost successive Premier League games for the ninth time since Claude Puel took charge. However, the Foxes haven’t lost three in a row in the competition since February 2017, when they lost five in a row under Claudio Ranieri.
  • Leicester haven’t lost four consecutive home Premier League games since January 2000.
  • Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke has scored in each of his last three Premier League games against Leicester. The Belgian has never scored in four consecutive appearances against an opponent in the competition.
  • Just two of Leicester striker Jamie Vardy’s eight Premier League goals this season have come at home. He’s not scored in any of his last four Premier League games at the King Power Stadium, his longest goalless streak at the ground since a run of five between September-November 2016.
  • Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson will be aged 71 years and 198 days on the day of this game, making him the oldest person to take charge of a Premier League game.

Merson’s prediction

Palace will have a go and Leicester score goals, so I think this will be an entertaining draw.

I don’t know what Claude Puel was thinking by leaving out Jamie Vardy against Tottenham. I know he said he is thinking about the future, but has somebody told him he is going to be there for the next three years?!

As a manager, you have one game – that’s how it works. What if they were on the end of a 6-0 defeat against Tottenham? You play your best players when you have them and you are in a job. That’s every manager, not just Puel.

Play your best players, and don’t look too far to the future because there isn’t always a future as a manager. It’s all about results and you have to win matches. No manager can bet anything that they will still be manager at the same club in four years, I don’t care who you are.
