A look at the Match of the Day and Match of the Day 2 scheduling ahead of another busy weekend of Premier League action.

We are all set for another action-packed weekend of Premier League football, and nothing says top-flight action like Match of the Day.

It’s set to be another exciting weekend as we move into the business end of the season, and this week’s action kicks off on Saturday lunchtime when title-chasing Liverpool take on Brighton.

Elsewhere, Manchester City take on Crystal Palace on Monday, but before then, we have two more exciting games on Saturday.

Brentford take on Burnley in the 3pm kick-off and then Manchester United and Tottenham face-off in a six-pointer in the race for a top four finish.

After those three games, Match of the Day will air, as usual, to show highlights of the action, and here we run you through what you need to know ahead of the latest broadcast, including Match of the Day 2, which has the majority of this weekend’s action.

When is Match of the Day?

Match of the Day will air on BBC One at 10.20pm on the evening of Saturday, 12 March.

Match of the Day 2 will follow on Sunday night, 12 March, and that will also be shown on BBC One, with coverage kicking off at 10.40pm.

What will the running order be?

The running order of Match of the Day and Match of the Day 2 won’t be revealed until the day of the broadcasts.

Gary Lineker usually confirms the order on his Twitter sometime on Saturday.

It’s likely United vs Tottenham will get priority, but that will depend on which game proves to be the game of the day.
