Scotland head to the lion’s den

THIS year’s Six Nations moves towards its conclusion over the next fortnight, and with a busy football schedule too, there’s plenty to attract sports fans into bars.

Scotland face their penultimate match against Wales at Murrayfield  (March 9) and will be hoping to salvage some respectability at home after disappointing defeats to both Ireland and France.

Things don’t get any easier for the Scots as they round off their campaign, and the entire tournament, a week later with a powder keg clash against England at the imposing  arena of Twickenham (March 16).

In football, the Old Firm’s first proper tussle in recent years seems to be going Celtic’s way.

Rangers are tasked with a tricky  Friday night visit to Leith to take on Hibs, while things look altogether more straightforward for pacesetters Celtic as they travel to lowly Dundee on St. Patrick’s Day.

Down south, the pick of the EPL ties sees a Manchester derby at Old Trafford (March 16) as Manchester City look to maintain their swashbuckling start to 2019 against a revitalised United side.

In the glamorous midweek world of continental football, Liverpool have a date with destiny as they head to Munich to keep up their bid of becoming European champions for the sixth time (March 13). Manchester City also face German opposition a day earlier in the form of Schalke.
