👊 3:40: Roman Kopylov (Russia) – Josh Fremd (USA), UFC Fight Night 227
Intrigue: Will Kopylov become a shadow title contender?
Roman Kopylov started his UFC career with two losses, but then he worked on his tactics and achieved a streak of three beautiful victories. Now the modest and good-natured Russian is waiting for Josh Fremd – a fairly skilled, but quite passable American fighter. If Kopylov wins again, he could become a shadow contender for the championship belt. Roman needs to make a big name for himself – the UFC doesn’t like modest guys.
We tell you in detail about Kopylov:
A village boy and an officer of the Russian Guard. Roman Kopylov is the most modest UFC fighter in Russia
👊 7:00: Alexa Grasso (Mexico) vs. Valentina Shevchenko (Kyrgyzstan), UFC Fight Night 227
Intrigue: Will Shevchenko be able to regain her regular title?
Six months ago, Valentina Shevchenko sensationally lost her championship belt, losing to Mexican Alexa Grasso via choke. The Russian-Kyrgyz athlete suffered defeat, but now she is as tough as possible. Bullet has already stated that she will enter the octagon with the sole purpose of destroying her opponent. But Grasso is far from being a gift and already knows the secret to defeating Valentina. Can Shevchenko become champion again?
Let’s explain why the stakes are so high:
“I come to destroy.” Will Shevchenko return the belt or is Puli’s time over for good?
🎿 14:00: skate test of skaters of the Russian national team
Intrigue: who will perform more quadruple jumps, men or women?
On Sunday the skaters will show spectators and experts new free programs. Unlike short jumps, quadruple jumps are not prohibited for single skaters here, so Kamila Valieva, Adeliya Petrosyan, Sofya Akatieva and other girls will delight the audience with the most difficult elements. Let’s not forget about the triple axle, which is not only the property of Elizaveta Tuktamysheva!
The guys will also organize a quad battle: the Russian champion Evgeniy Semenenko, the winner of the Russian Grand Prix final Pyotr Gumennik and the rest of our skaters, who are capable of a lot, are perfectly prepared for the skate tests. Let’s not forget the sports couples and the dancers: on Saturday, Alexandra Stepanova and Ivan Bukin, who returned after a break, were so well received by the fans that they were in tears.

⚽️ 14:00: Lorient – Monaco, Ligue 1, matchday 5
Intrigue: will Golovin’s team separate from PSG?
Monaco has had a great start to the new Ligue 1 season. Adi Hütter’s team has 10 points from four games and leads the standings. Ahead is a meeting with the unbreakable Lorient. But Monaco has the chance to separate itself from PSG by five points and reinforce its lead. This opportunity cannot be missed. Alexander Golovin, judging by the matches of the Russian national team, is in good shape. Thus, the Russian will help Monaco in the next meeting.

🏎 15:00: Formula 1, Singapore Grand Prix, race
Intrigue: is Verstappen’s series really that?
Saturday’s shocking qualifying results promise us the first Grand Prix of the entire season in which a representative other than Red Bull will win. The Ferrari drivers will start from first and third place, the Mercedes representatives from second and fifth place. There’s also the fast Lando Norris and the weather forecast calls for rain during Sunday’s race. Perhaps it is the weather conditions that will save Max Verstappen’s incredible winning streak, which already has ten Grands Prix?

⚽️ 16:30: Rubin – Zenit, RPL, 8th round
Intrigue: an opportunity for Zenit to enter the top 2
Zenit started the season with unusual results. The team is out of the top 3, but if it beats Rubin, it will rise to the top 3. Good motivation for Semak’s team. Things are not going well for the Kazan team: six points after seven games and 13th place. There was talk of the resignation of Rashid Rakhimov. But for now the coach continues to work in Kazan. The meeting with Zenit is an opportunity to score points and please the Rubin management and fans.

⚽️ 18:30: Everton – Arsenal, Premier League, matchday 5
Intrigue: Will Everton, inspired by new owners, beat Arsenal at home?
Everton face changes. The club was acquired by the American company 777Partners. Perhaps the new bosses will help revive the team, which has been struggling to survive in recent seasons? Everton have a difficult match ahead against Premier League runners-up Arsenal. Arteta’s team has added 10 points in four games and is not going to stop. It’s time for Everton to win. A draw and three defeats is not what the fans expected. But it will be difficult to get three points against a dominant Arsenal. However, the important factor is the home field.

🏉 18:45: Australia – Fiji, KM-2023, group C, 2nd round
Intrigue: Can Fiji unseat Australia from first place in the group?
The Fiji national team had the best performance among the losing teams in the first round of the World Cup. The islanders in the match against Wales kept the intrigue until the end, and if they had had a little more luck in the last seconds, they would have created the greatest comeback in the history of the World Cup. But now the Fiji team will have to show its strength in the match against Australia, which beat Georgia without much difficulty. Fans have the right to expect a very interesting and intriguing battle.

⚽️ 19:00: Lokomotiv – Orenburg, RPL, matchday 8
Intrigue: Will Loko achieve a third consecutive victory in the RPL?
After a sluggish start, Lokomotiv began to steadily gain points. Two wins and two draws in the last four rounds is not the worst indicator. Galaktionov’s team has a home match against Orenburg ahead of them. The Orenburg team also looks better after the change of coach. With Deograsia a draw with CSKA and a victory over Sochi was achieved. Will you be able to take the glasses with you from Moscow?

⚽️ 21:45: Lyon – Le Havre, Ligue 1, matchday 5
Intrigue: Will Kuzyaev score another goal?
The first major rival of Le Havre Kuzyaev in the new season of the French Championship. Although Lyon is last, in 18th place in the table. Coach Laurent Blanc has already been fired from the club. Le Havre is thus capable of defeating a formidable opponent. Fabio Grosso, 2006 world champion and former Olympique player, became Lyon’s new coach. Can the Italian beat Le Havre Kuzyaev? Daler has already scored two goals in Ligue 1. Why not score a third against Lyon?

⚽️ 22:00: Real Madrid – Real Sociedad, La Liga, 5th matchday
Intrigue: are we waiting for Zakharyan’s goal against Real Madrid?
Real Madrid started the season with four wins, and Jude Bellingham has already fallen in love with the Madrid fans. Sociedad is a bit stagnant: three draws and only one victory. Arsen Zakharyan has not yet joined the team, but he came on as a substitute. The 20-year-old Russian is unlikely to feature as a starter for Real Madrid. But he must leave the bench. Can Zakharyan surprise Ancelotti’s team? The last time a Russian scored against Real Madrid was Fedor Smolov in 2020. He has to break the drought and at the same time take away Madrid’s first points of the season.
