What you might have missed between last night and this morning

1. Cycling – UCI Track Champions League: Crazy suspense before the last lap

The appointment fixed in Tel Aviv having been canceled due to the health situation, the epilogue of the UCI Track Champions League takes place this weekend in London. Friday night, Harrie Lavreysen could not do better than fourth in the keirin and remains within shooting range of Stefan Botticher in the sprinters standings. The fight is even tighter among the sprinters, as only two points separate Emma Hinze and Lea Friedrich. All these beautiful people will explain themselves one last time this Saturday evening, and it will be to follow live on all Eurosport platforms.

2. Basketball – NBA: The Clippers kings of Los Angeles, the Warriors tame the Suns

In Los Angeles, a long-awaited derby pitted the Lakers and Clippers against each other. Despite the notable performances of Anthony Davis (27 points) and LeBron James (23 points), it was the partners of Paul George (19 points, 8 rebounds, 9 assists) and Marcus Morris (21 points) who won the end of a thrilling game (115-119). Also in the West, the top shock between Golden State and Phoenix was won by the Warriors (118-96), at the top of the Conference, after ending 18 games unbeaten for the Suns.

3. Alpine skiing – Beaver Creek / Lake Louise: Goggia and Kilde, the ghosts

The two were taken off the runways for months with a serious injury. However, it did not take them long to reach the top again. On Friday evening, Sofia Goggia and Aleksander Aamodt Kilde each raised their arms. The Italian won the downhill from Lake Louise with a cheeky lead over runner-up Breezy Johnson (+1 ”47). The Norwegian got the better of Marco Odermatt for just three hundredths during the Beaver Creek Super-G, while Alexis Pinturault finished in a good 6th place. Two descents for men (7 p.m.) and women (8.30 p.m.) will be followed this Saturday, live and exclusively on Eurosport.

What you are sure to follow today

1. Biathlon – Östersund: Pursuit for women, relay for men

Two races are on the program this Saturday afternoon in Sweden. Priority will be given to the women’s pursuit (1 p.m.), which will see the Austrian Lisa Therera Hauser open the starting gate, 13 seconds ahead of the Swedish Elvira Oeberg. Sixth on the starting line, Anaïs Chevalier-Bouchet (+28 ”) represents the most serious chance of a podium for the Blue. In the process (3.10 p.m.), the French men’s relay will in turn try to get out of the game and will have to. Fabien Claude, Émilien Jacquelin, Simon Desthieux and Quentin Fillon Maillet are contenders for victory, although it will be necessary to beware of the Norwegians in particular.

2. Football – Ligue 1: PSG put to the test of Bollaert

Three days after having stumbled against a solid defense in Nice at the Parc des Princes (0-0), PSG faces another ambitious team in the championship this Saturday evening (9 p.m.), namely Lens. In a Bollaert-Delelis stadium packed and intoxicated by the Sainte-Barbe festivals, the Sang et Or will do their utmost to bring down the Parisian ogre. Earlier today, Marseille will host Brest (5 p.m.) and Lille will host Troyes (7 p.m.).

3. Rugby – Top 14: Reunion at the top between UBB and Stade Toulousain

Last season, they faced each other in the Champions Cup and Top 14. Each time, Stade Toulousain had the last word. But the Union Bordeaux-Bègles has not lost its frantic pace so far, and it is therefore a clash between the first two of the championship which we will attend this Saturday evening (9:05 pm). Pushed by its public, the UBB will seek to take its revenge and, at the same time, to steal the place of leader to its adversary of the evening.
