19.45 St Johnstone v Aberdeen, Scottish Premier League, Sky Sports 1/HD1
A quiet week lies ahead due to the international break and a
lack of European cup competitions, and it begins in Perth. The hosts were beaten by St Mirren on Saturday but are sitting pretty in fourth. By contrast, the Dons are second from bottom after an Old Firm double whammy in their last two matches.

19.45 Sheffield United v Bradford City, JPT Area Quarter-Final, Sky Sports 1/HD1
Two Yorkshire sides meet in the Northern Quarter-Finals of the Football League Trophy on Tuesday. Sheffield United overcame Rotherham United in the previous round, while the Bantams needed penalties to defeat Huddersfield Town.

Wednesday 9 November
19.30 Glentoran v Linfield, IFA Premiership, Sky Sports 1/HD1
Unbeaten since September, Glentoran host top of the table Linfield with their confidence high. The leaders were defeated in their last game by third-placed Cliftonville, meaning that a home win here will take Glentoran to within four points of the visitors at the top.

19.00 England v Iceland, UEFA U-21 Euro 2013 Qualifying, ESPN/ESPN HD
Qualifying for 2013 continues for the England side with the visit of Iceland to Colchester United for this Group 8 clash. England have won all three qualifiers so far, conceding just one goal in the process. They travel to Belgium next Monday for the next qualifier.
23.45 Vasco da Gama v Universitario, Copa Sudamericana Quarter-Final, Premier Sports
If Thursday is the new Friday, you'll be able to stay up late for this one. This is the second leg between Vasco of Brazil and Universitario of Peru, and it's finely poised for a barnstormer. Goals from Raúl Ruidíaz and Johan Fano gave the Peruvians a 2-0 home win in the first leg, setting up a comeback of epic proportions in the second. Maybe.
