where the combatants will be vying for £50,000 in the fast paced competition. BT Sport are also on board for the first time.It will be the Middleweights on show in the capital, and the first quarter final sees the betting favourite take centre stage.

Northampton’s Kieron Conway (10-0, KO3) is a short 19/10 with tournament sponsors, Mansionbet to win the tournament, and he meets rank outsider, Kaan Hawes (5-0-1, KO0) in the first match.

Conway has gone through his paid career the far on a diet of the usual trial horses. He gained a spot on a JD NXTGEN show in his last outing, where he won every round against the durable Gabor Gorbics in an eight rounder in Peterborough. Essex resident Hawes has one blemish on his record, a four round draw with Duane Green in March last year.

The main threat to Conway will be Southern Area Champion, Tey Lynn Jones (11-1, KO2). He kicks off his campaign against Nottingham based, unknown quantity, Derrick Osaze (6-0, KO1).

Jones has fought at a much higher level than Osaze, with him picking up the Southern Area belt in March last year with a seventh round retirement win against MH Legg. He defended four months later with a points win against Darren Cordona.
Osaze is largely unknown and has fought on small hall shows against journeyman opposition.
The third quarter final sees Gravesend’s Sean Phillips (5-0-1, KO1) take on Uttoxeter’s Josh Groombridge (7-1, KO4).
Phillips starts as warm favourite in this contest, with his only setback a debut draw against Anthony Fox in July 2017. Groombridge lost his unbeaten record in April last year, when the then 3-10 Emmanuel Moussinga dropped him twice, before stopping him in seven rounds. He rebounded with a four round points win in September of 2018 against Paul Cummings.
The final quarter final sees joint second favourite with the tournament sponsors, Grant Dennis (12-1, KO2) face a tricky test against Clacton’s Joe Hurn (10-0-1, KO6).

Dennis is also a former Southern Area Champion, picking up the Title in November 2016 by outpointing Nicky Jenman. His only loss was in a step up in class, narrowly outscored in a challenge for the English Title against Elliott Matthews in December 2017. He has two straight wins since.

Chelsea vs Eintracht

Chelsea vs Eintracht: With a spot in the top-four of the Premier League wrapped up, Chelsea now shifts its focus toward reaching the Europa League final. The Blues host Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday in the second leg of the semifinals, aiming to build on the 1-1 draw from the first leg.

Eintracht vs Chelsea

Chelsea: A 0-0 draw will be enough for the Blues to move on, while a 1-1 draw will force extra time. But if there is a draw with multiple goals for either team, the Blues would be on their way out. They are still the favorite in this second leg but have to be cautious about a team in Eintracht that is known for scoring early.

Eintracht: This team is forced to score, or it will be out of the competition. Being more aggressive in attack will be needed and if Chelsea scores one, it’s not a big deal because it doesn’t really change the fact that they need to find the net. Expect them to go for more balls over the top against an inconsistent Chelsea defense.

Eden Hazard starts in the second leg and scores twice as the Blues move on to the final. Chelsea is in a fine position to advance but has to be cautious at the back to avoid an upset against a powerful attack.

Here’s how you can watch the match and what to know

In the FA Cup, they call it the “Magic” of the Cup. In NCAA basketball, they call it March “Madness”. I’m not sure what they call it over at UEFA, but whatever sorcery’s going on in the Champions League these days cannot be explained just by the usual “anything can happen in single-elimination tournaments” cliche.

To be clear, it’s definitely something wicked that’s at work as we’re faced with the daunting task of watching a Champions League final between Liverpool and Spurs. But hopefully all its energies have now been spent, and we can enjoy a straightforward second-leg win over Eintracht Frankfurt after last week’s 1-1 away first leg draw.

On a personal note, in addition to the football drama/tragedies this week, I’ve had two (TWO!) cars break down on me in the span of 12 hours, got swamped at work due to unreasonable deadlines, and I was also told that I tore my ACL and will need surgery and a year of rehab … and that’s all before we’ve even gotten to Thursday, which, as we know, is the worst day.

Arsenal vs Valencia

Arsenal vs Valencia: Arsenal goes to Valencia for the second leg of the Europa League semifinals on Thursday looking to salvage any chance of making the Champions League this season. The Gunners are out of contention for a top-four spot in the Premier League so they must be crowned Europa League champs in order to book a ticket into next season’s Champions League.

Valencia vs Arsenal

The first leg at Emirates Stadium went to Arsenal, 3-1. The defense for the Gunners, just 90 minutes away from the final, has to step up with what can be a daunting task at Mestalla. Just one goal for Arsenal will force Valencia to score three after the first leg ended with the Gunners getting a 3-1 win.

Here’s how you can watch the match and what to know:

Arsenal: The Gunners have been awful on the road in this competition, and the key will be a composed start. Valencia has been able to compete with big clubs at home and the fans will be as loud as they have been in years, so it will all be about Arsenal handling the pressure and playing smart.

Valencia: This is a team that sometimes really struggles to score, but after putting six past Huesca last weekend, the goal-scoring confidence will be there. They better just hope they didn’t use up all of their goals and saved some for this one, where the team is forced to score at least two.

Valencia gets the narrow victory, but an away goal from Arsenal is enough to ultimately send the Gunners through. To set up this simulation, we used kick-off mode but didn’t select a team to control; we then selected the teams and watched the match play out by itself, to give us a unique prediction.

Arsenal host Valencia at Emirates Stadium in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final clash. Follow for live coverage of Arsenal vs Valencia including score. Arsenal are two games away from winning the Europa League. With or without a Champions League place handed to the winner, it is a competition worth winning,

Despite all the smokescreens, beat writers and reporters have provided useful nuggets—potentially shedding light on front-office plans across the league.

Before Commissioner Roger Goodell steps to the podium, we’ll go through one more dress rehearsal—a final first-round mock draft, which connects the top prospects with teams.

What’s the Arizona Cardinals’ final decision on the No. 1 overall pick? How many quarterbacks will go in the first round? Did the New York Giants find Eli Manning’s successor? What did the Oakland Raiders do with their three first-round picks?

The selections below are based on reports and rumors—not the best-case scenario for roster needs.

Final 1st-Round Mock Draft

2. San Francisco 49ers: Nick Bosa, EDGE, Ohio State

3. Washington Redskins: Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State (trade with the New York Jets)

7. Jacksonville Jaguars: T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa

8. Detroit Lions: Clelin Ferrell, DE, Clemson

9. Buffalo Bills: Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama

11. Cincinnati Bengals: Devin Bush, LB, Michigan

12. Green Bay Packers: Brian Burns, EDGE, Florida State

13. Miami Dolphins: Daniel Jones, QB, Duke

14. Atlanta Falcons: Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida

30. Green Bay Packers (from New Orleans): Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma

31. Los Angeles Rams: Mack Wilson, LB, Alabama

32. New England Patriots: Noah Fant, TE, Iowa

The Cardinals could’ve gone in three directions: select Kyler Murray, take a top defensive lineman (Nick Bosa, Quinnen Williams or Josh Allen) and there’s the trade-back option.

It’s quite telling that quarterback Josh Rosen is out of the loop this close to the draft. At an early stage in his career, he needs support from the organization. Instead, the Cardinals have left him guessing on his future.

Rosen called the process of awaiting his fate “annoying”, per ESPN.com’s Josh Weinfuss. “It’s annoying, but it is what it is. Football’s a business, and I definitely respect the higher-ups and their decisions,” he said.

According to NFL Network’s Steve Wyche, Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said the team was undecided on their top draft choice as of Tuesday:
