  1. Goodbye!

    Well, that's your lot for another edition of Sportsday. 

    Of course, the fun is only just starting, with tonight's Champions League action promising to make this a rather enjoyable evening. 

    You can follow all of the action right here on the BBC website - keep your eyes peeled for our live text that will be kicking off shortly or follow along on BBC Radio 5 live, with build-up starting at 18:30 BST.

    And that's exactly what I'll be doing, so I'm off to get comfy before the theater starts.

  2. Get Involved - best ever saves

    #bbcsportsday

    Jamie Healy: Best ever Save? Dean Kiely from Christophe Duggary in 2003. Amazing reflexes from an underrated keeper.

    Nick: Best save ... My son's with the score at 3-3 in his second game in goal for Wivenhoe under 7s.

    Wheat Is Murder: Jussi Jaaskelainen's tip-of-the-fingertips save for Bolton from Gary Cahill's screamer in 2006, top class!

    The Tea In Team: Best save must be Roy Carroll against Pedro Mendes (2005). It defied logic!

    It certainly did Tea in Team - logic and the rules!

    Thanks to everyone who has sent in their suggestions today, we've had some real crackers. Give yourselves a collective pat on the back.

  4. 'Man City have real belief now'

    Barcelona v Man City (19:45 BST)

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Paul Dickov

    So City may be at full strength, but does that mean they have a chance at the home of the Spanish champions.

    Former blue Paul Dickov believes that the Manchester side will feel confident - and with good reason.

    “It's the first time for me that I think Man City actually feel they can go to the top clubs now and get a result," he told BBC Radio 5 live.

    "They've played Barca before, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final. I think they hoped they'd get a result rather than believing they could. 

    "There's a real belief around the place that they can go there now and go toe to toe with them. 

    "It's going to be difficult because they're the best team in the world but City can go there and cause them a lot of problems.”

  5. Manchester City team news

    Barcelona v Manchester City (19:45 BST)

    Yaya Toure

    Manchester City will be close to full strength for manager Pep Guardiola's homecoming, with no place for fellow former Barcelona player Yaya Toure in his 21-man squad.

    City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo and forward Nolito are expected to feature upon their own return to the Nou Camp.

    Forward Kevin de Bruyne is fit again, while club captain Vincent Kompany came off the bench against Everton on Saturday to make his second appearance of the season.

  6. Celtic team news

    Celtic v Borussia Monchengladbach (19:45 BST)

    Celtic welcome back three players for their home tie against Borussia Monchengladbach, as they look to build on their hard-fought point against Manchester City last time out.

    Defender Mikael Lustig and midfielder Nir Bitton return after both players missed Saturday's win over Motherwell after returning from the international break carrying knocks.

    Midfielder Tom Rogic was rested after a long journey back from international duty with Australia and also returns.

  7. Arsenal team news

    Arsenal v Ludogrets Razgrad (19:45 BST)

    Francis Coquelin

    After Leicester and Tottenham last night, Arsenal, Celtic and Manchester City take their turn in the Champions League limelight tonight. 

    Arsenal go into their match with Ludogrets Razgrad on the back of six successive wins in all competitions, and are unbeaten since their 4-3 loss to Liverpool in their first game of the season. 

    Midfielder Francis Coquelin could start on Wednesday after returning from a knee injury in the 3-2 defeat of Swansea on Saturday.  

  8. Send in your questions for Phil Neville

    Ryder Cup player Andy Sullivan would like to see a return of more British events to the European Tour.

    The Tour, which now hosts events in South Africa, Australia, Malaysia and the Middle East, hosted six events on the British mainland in 2016 - of which only two were in England.

    "It's a shame," the Nuneaton-based 29-year-old told BBC Sport.

    "It would be nice to see more events in England, and in Britain as a whole."

    Welsh boxer Dale Evans says he wants to win the British welterweight title as a tribute to Mike Towell.

    Towell, 25, died in hospital after being injured in a fight with Evans in Glasgow on 1 October.

    Evans, 24, attended Towell's funeral and said the Scot's family convinced him not to retire.

    "Nothing would make me happier than winning the British title and taking it up to Dundee and showing Mike's family and his friends," Evans said.

    "Winning it would make me so proud, and I think it would make the family proud and Mike too."

  15. I had a 'moral obligation' to testify against Cairns - McCullum

    Cricket

    Brendan McCullum

    Ex-New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum said he had a "moral obligation" to testify in court against former team-mate Chris Cairns.

    Cairns was cleared of perjury and perverting the course of justice last November after an eight-week trial.

    McCullum gave evidence accusing Cairns of twice asking him to fix matches.

    Cairns said McCullum's version of events was wrong and that he was "shocked" McCullum would accuse him of trying to recruit him to fix results.

  16. 'World Cup schedules not fair'

    Football

    Northern Ireland

    World Cup and European Championship tournaments have a built-in bias that means teams playing earlier in the group stages are more likely to progress, claim Swiss researchers.

    Sides playing first in the first two rounds of games, as Northern Ireland did at Euro 2016, have a better chance of qualifying by 17 percentage points.

    Economists analysed data from every World Cup and Euros from 1996 to 2014.

    Playing all games simultaneously "would make tournaments fairer", they said.

    The defending World Cup champion tested positive for the steroid clostebol.

    The Norwegian ski federation said the substance had come from a lip cream.

    "The fact that she has been suspended means she has some degree of fault,'' the attorney for the Norwegian Anti-Doping Agency said.
