Allianz Arena, München

Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain will face off in the highly anticipated Round of 16 second leg fixture.

Six Nations: Scotland v Ireland

Sunday 12th March 3:00PM GMT/3:00PM Local Time

Ireland travel to Edinburgh to face Scotland in the fourth round of the Six Nations. Both teams occupy the top two spots in the Six Nations table, Ireland at the top and Scotland in second. Ireland are currently world number one and favourites to win the Six Nations this year, but travelling to Murrayfield will be no easy task.
