3 Sports Clashes You Need To Watch This Weekend

Check out which sports fixtures you should have your eye on this coming weekend…

The weekend is upon us and there are some epic sports encounters that we should earmark, including Bafana Bafana’s next AFCON battle, a final fight for the Proteas, and a clash of European rugby giants.

South Africa vs Senegal (AFCON football)

Friday, 19:00

Bafana Bafana face an uphill battle to qualify for the knockout stages after slipping to a somewhat unfortunate 3-1 defeat against Algeria in their opening Group C match.

Senegal, 2-1 winners over Ghana in the first round of matches, can be expected to pose a stiff physical test for Ephraim Mashaba’s men at Estadio de Mongomo but Phala remains confident that South Africa can secure a much-needed victory, highlighting their pace and athleticism as key attributes.

South Africa vs West Indies (ODI Cricket)

Sunday, 10:00

After winning the second One-Day International by a colossal margin, host South Africa will take on West Indies in the third ODI in PE, and while some of the Proteas’ big-guns will be rested, its still sure to be a crackers once again.

Windies skipper Denesh Ramdin would hope that his team come up with a significantly better performance this time around in order to stay alive in the competition.

Clermont vs Saracens (EPC Rugby)

Sunday, 17:15

Clermont-Auvergne and Saracens put their Champions Cup credentials on the line at a sold-out Stade Marcel Michelin in the Pool 1 decider.

Saracens have won the last two meetings between these sides including a remarkable 46-6 triumph in last year’s semi-final as well as victory at home in round 1 of this season’s campaign.

The winner in France will progress to the quarter-finals while every bonus point will be vital with the losers facing elimination from the tournament.
