OTB AM is back after a night of Champions League drama and a 10-goal thriller at Villa Park - Irish Independent football correspondent is with us to break down the action.

We’ll also look back one of the most-hectic weeks in Irish football history.

Andy Dunne joins us to talk rugby and to talk competition for starting spots in the Irish team.

Writer Brin-Jonathan Butler will also join us to talk about the sinister side of professional chess, the political intrigue behind it’s biggest events, and the masters and prodigies gone awry.

He’s also been in the Deontay Wilder camp and believes that the Alabama brawler has the chance to be the last great American heavyweight - if he manages to hit and stop Fury in LA.

All that and our usual look at the morning’s back pages and breaking sports news.

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