Hosting the regional multi-sport meet for the first time since 2005, the Philippines are going all out by featuring a record of 529 events in 56 sports, including esports and obstacle racing for the first time. For Malaysia, the national contingent aims to win at least 70 gold medals from those events.

UCL: Barcelona vs Borussia Dortmund

Schedule: Thursday, November 28 @ 4:00am

Group F leaders Barcelona can seal their spot in the last 16 with a home win over second-placed Dortmund, which could give third-placed Inter an opportunity to move ahead of Lucien Favre's side in the penultimate round of the UEFA Champions League group stage.

UEL: Arsenal vs Eintracht Frankfurt

Schedule: Friday, November 29 @ 4:00am
Channel: beIN Sports Max (CH819)
With just one win in their last eight games in all competitions, Unai Emery is under pressure to ensure the Gunners bounce back in the UEFA Europa League and bag a win against Eintracht, sealing their spot in the knockout phase at the same time. Failing to do so, coupled with Standard Liege's potential win over Vitoria, they might face a tricky visit to Standard on December 12 in their final Group F match.

NBA: New Orleans Pelicans vs Los Angeles Lakers

Schedule: Thursday, November 28 @ 10:30am
Channel: Astro Supersport 4 (CH814 & CH834)
Most NBA fans have surely been keeping an eye on this encounter since the schedule confirrmation as it sees former Pelicans star Anthony Davis return to the Smoothie King Center for the first time since joining the Lakers. There is another mini reunion on the card, with Brandon Ingram and Lonzo Ball likely to be fit to face their former team who drafted them.

Premier League: Chelsea vs West Ham United

Schedule: Saturday, November 30 @ 11:00pm
Channel: Astro Supersport 2 (CH812 & CH832)
A London derby is always a feisty affair, but the upcoming game between Chelsea and West Ham could get slightly more competitive due to Frank Lampard, who came through the Hammers' youth system, being in charge of the Blues. It is also the first time he gets to take on his former team as a manager.

A year ago, nobody would've believed you if you said this would be a top-four encounter, and yet, here we are, with league leaders Mönchengladbach hosting fourth-placed Freiburg. A win for the visitors would see them close a three-point gap between them.

La Liga: Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona
