???? 1:00: Los Angeles Lakers – Boston Celtics, NBA regular season

Intrigue: which of the stars will participate in the match?

One of the most important Christmas games of this season will pit two teams whose rivalry is the greatest in NBA history. The Lakers and Celtics are by far the best organizations in league history and have tied Finals titles more than once. Despite the importance of the game, the status of some players is in doubt. What’s especially concerning is that decisions on LeBron James and Anthony Davis will be made before the game. Will the well-deserved stars please fans over the holidays?

???? 6:30: Phoenix Suns – Dallas Mavericks, NBA regular season

Intrigue: whose absence affects teams more: Bradley Beal or Kyrie Irving?

The teams are in similar situations in the sense that they have been suffering for a long time due to the injury of one of their leaders. If Bradley Beal was injured in one way or another for almost the entire season and was only able to participate in six games this season, then Kyrie is forced to deal with one, but serious injury. Without their stars, both teams cannot show their full potential and suffer disappointing defeats, complicating their position in the Western Conference. Who will be stronger?

???? 15:30: “Siberia” – “Avangard”, KHL regular championship

???? Match with text broadcast

Intrigue: Will Tkachev repeat his personal scoring record?

Not only is the Siberian derby always exciting and challenging until the end, but also one of the best scorers in the league, Avangard striker Vladimir Tkachev, comes to the Siberian derby with 57 points in 41 games and today can repeat or even update . his own record for points in a KHL regular season. The forward showed his best performance to date a year earlier, scoring 59 points in 64 regular season games.

Reed Boucher considers Tkachev the best partner of his career:

⚽️ 15:30: Newcastle United – Nottingham Forest, Premier League, matchday 19

Intrigue: Will Nottingham break the losing streak?

If everything is clear with the hosts and their status as favorites in this meeting (six points in two games last season), then the guests must correct the current situation: for seven games in a row, Steve Cooper’s team has not known a victory. . So it is not far from the relegation zone: it is only two points away. And there’s a spectacular schedule ahead! The absence of nine opposing players, including Tonali, Manquillo, Pope and Murphy, Willock and Barnes, may help.

????16:30: Finland U20 – Canada U20, MFM-2024, group stage

Intrigue: how will the MFM winner of the last two years begin his title defense?

Invariably, on December 26, the World Junior Championship begins – one of the most prestigious hockey tournaments, one might say, the Olympic Games for players no older than 20 years old. Team Canada has won gold the last two years, but this year they could very well lose the crown. First of all, the Swedes traditionally have a good team, the Americans have assembled a very strong team (the United States already beat Canada in a friendly match). Secondly, the Canadians lack experience: Chicago, of course, did not give Connor Bedard to any national team and, as a result, only one player has MFM experience behind him, several more played at the Glinka Memorial and in the JWCH. But all this is on paper, but hockey will show how it will turn out in reality. Will the Canadians begin their title defense with a win?

???? 19:00: Torpedo – Spartak, KHL regular championship

???? Match with text broadcast

Intrigue: will Kovalchuk continue scoring goals?

Ilya Kovalchuk made his debut for Spartak and immediately scored. Although there were some mistakes, considering he’s already 40 years old and hasn’t played at all for the last year and a half, he’s still off to an encouraging start. The next match promises to be brilliant and will keep viewers glued to their television screens: the red and white will play against Torpedo, against whom they have not yet lost this season. Will it be possible to continue this winning streak and Kovalchuk increase his goal tally?

⚽️ 20:30: Burnley – Liverpool, Premier League, matchday 19

???? Match with text broadcast

Intrigue: Will Klopp’s team top the Premier League table at least for a while?

It seems that those from Merseyside have everything going: win and be first. Yes, before the game between Arsenal and West Ham, but even two days at the top of the Premier League are a solid emotional recharge before the festive marathon of matches. Furthermore, in the last three meetings with this rival, Liverpool always won and only lost once in 10 games.

Speaking of Christmas matches in the Premier League:

Champion at Christmas = Premier League champion? It’s definitely too early for Arsenal to rejoice.

⚽️ 21:00: Al Ittihad – Al Nasr, Pro League, matchday 17

Intrigue: Benzema vs Ronaldo: who will win?

Previously they were partners in Real Madrid, now they are retired legends of the Saudi Arabian Championship. If you haven’t been watching the Pro League, now is the time. This match should not be seen as a championship match or a big challenge. It is more correct to perceive the meeting as a game in a vacuum. Because the fight between Karim and Cristiano is something new, but at the same time their appearance on the same field is something old and forgotten.

I wonder if Ronaldo is sad.

⚽️ 23:00: Manchester United – Aston Villa, Premier League, matchday 19

???? Match with text broadcast

Intrigue: Will United lose again and Villa top the Premier League table?

What a plot! Unai Emery’s team could have temporarily led the English championship table at the beginning of the round, but stumbled against Sheffield. Now it’s Manchester United’s turn, along with Chelsea, the Premier League’s main problem club. However, last season things were not so easy for the Birmingham team, not even in the second half: they lost to United on both occasions (2-4, 0-1). Will the situation change?

Another proof of how good Emery’s team is:


Aston Villa set a record for wins in one year. The club had never won so much!
