Wednesday 18th October

FOOTBALL

Celtic face a massive test in the Champions League this evening they are at German giants and five-time winners Bayern Munich. Last time out the Scottish Champions beat Anderlecht 3 nil in Belgium in what was only their second ever away win in the group stages of the competition. Another positive result tonight would leave Brendan Rodgers side in pole position to be one of the two teams who qualify for the knockout stages.

Jose Mourinho's back in his home country this evening as the Manchester United boss takes his team to Portugal to play Benfica. The Old Trafford side have two wins from two so far in the campaign.

Chelsea welcome Roma to Stamford Bridge tonight also looking to make it three wins from three in their group. Summer signing Alvaro Morata's fit and back in contention after missing the weekend loss at Crystal Palace.

Cove Rangers will return to the top of the Highland League should they avoid defeat to current Champions Buckie Thistle at Harlaw Park this evening. John Sheran’s side sit second in the table but have played two fewer games than current table toppers Fraserburgh. There are two other games tonight, Formartine will look to stay in touch at the top as they look for a win at Rothes, the remaining fixture sees Deveronvale welcome Strathspey Thistle to Princess Royal Park.

Aberdeen winger Scott Wright has signed a contract extension that will see him stay with the Club until the summer of 2021. The 20 year old, who signed a two year deal in January, has now agreed to pledge his future to the club next four years.

Northern Ireland have been drawn against Switzerland in the World Cup play-offs with the first leg to be played in Belfast. The Republic of Ireland take on Denmark, and will have home advantage in the second leg. Elsewhere Croatia face Greece, while Sweden play Italy.

Despite missing out on a World Cup Play - off spot Scotland have jumped 14 places to 29th in the latest football world rankings. England are up to 12th - but it still means they'll miss out on being top seeds for December's World Cup group stage draw. Wales are down one spot to 14th, while Northern Ireland fall from 20th to 23rd.Germany remain top, ahead of Brazil.

GOLF

Meldrum House golf club Oldmeldrum will play host to next year’s Aberdeen Masters Senior professional tournament from the 17th till the 19th July. Tim Spence picked up the £10,000 winner’s cheque last year.

TENNIS

Roger Federer says his last ambition for 2017 is to win the ATP World Tour
Finals in London.  He concedes it's unlikely he'll catch Rafael Nadal for the number one ranking.  Federer racked up his fifth win in a row over his Spanish rival by taking the Shanghai Masters title on Sunday.

Jamie Murray's secured his place at next month's season-ending ATP World Tour Finals in London for the second year running.  Britain's top doubles tennis player and Brazilian playing partner Bruno Soares got there after reaching the semi-finals of the Shanghai Masters. The pair won two grand slam titles last year in Australia and at the US Open -but they went without a major trophy in 2017.

CYCLING

Britain's Chris Froome has been given one of cycling's most prestigious titles for his achievements this year. He's picked up the Velo D'or award given to the best rider of 2017. Froome became the first man to win the Tour de France and Vuelta a Espana in the same season since 1978.

ATHLETICS

2014 gold medallists Ross Murdoch and Dan Wallace and are among the first athletes to be picked for Scotland's team at next year's Commonwealth Games.  Swimmers Mark Campbell from Peterhead and Aberdeen's Euan Inglis will also be on the plane to the Gold Coast.  Hannah Miley from Inverurie is included to race in the pool as well - as is Duncan Scott - with Alex Marshall and Paul Foster going as defending lawn bowls champions.  The team are looking to build on their best-ever performance in Glasgow - when the host nation won 53 medals.
