Ger and Eoin are in the hot seats for this morning's OTB AM to look ahead to all the weekend's action.

Kevin Kilbane will dial into the studio via the Skype machine as Ireland look to salvage their Nations League campaign with back-to-back home games against Denmark and Wales. 

With Real Madrid struggling to put any consistant form together since the departure of club legend, Zinedine Zidane, Graham Hunter will be on the line to assess Julian Lopetegui's reign so far. 

We'll speak to Karim Zidan about the fall out from UFC 229 and the murkier world of MMA promotion.

Irish Hockey hero Nikki Evans will also drop into the studio to talk about the future of hockey on this island and has some interesting points on the cross-pollination of sport. 

We'll also have all the morning's sports headlines and, as always, we'll be bringing you all the news from the morning's sports pages.

You can watch OTB AM from 7:45 every weekday morning on our Facebook, YouTube and Periscope channels.
