Tues pm Sport: Liverpool & Chelsea in Champions League Tonight; Sexton a 6 Nations Doubt

: 12/10/2019 - 17:31

European champions Liverpool need a point in Austria this evening to secure their place in the last 16 of the Champions League.

Jurgen Klopp's side are currently top of Group E and will guarantee top spot with a win at Red Bull Salzburg.

And the German boss says his side's success is based on taking it one game at a time:

Kick-off is at 5.55pm, with Napoli hosting Genk at the same time in that group.

Also tonight Chelsea must beat Lille to ensure qualification for the knockout stages.

Frank Lampard's side know a draw will do if Valencia lose to Ajax in tonight's other Group H fixture.

Both games get underway at 8pm.

Because the FAI will not be appearing in front of the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Transport, Tourism, and Sport tomorrow, the committee has cancelled its meeting.

In a letter, the FAI Company Secretary Rea Walshe said the FAI’s key priority at the moment is the necessary refinancing to "secure jobs and the future of the game."

Johnny Sexton is a doubt for Ireland's opening Six Nations matches against Scotland and Wales.

The Leinster captain is believed to have suffered a medial ligament tear during Saturday's European Champions Cup win at Northampton.

Sexton is estimated to be out for between 8 and 10 weeks, which would rule him out of the February fixtures.

=====
Patrick Reed has denied cheating in a tournament last week and hit out at International Team players for saying so, ahead of the Presidents Cup.

Reed received a two-stroke penalty for improving his lie when he moved sand with his practice swing on Friday at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas.

Former Masters champion Reed said he had not seen the sand move and the officials agreed that he inadvertently improved his lie.

USA captain Tiger Woods said he had spoken to Reed about the incident.
