You might have thought it was just another quietish week of international footbal, but you'd be wrong.
Ireland vs Portugal - Ronaldo to score
When: Thursday, November 11, 7.45pm (GMT)
Where: Aviva Stadium, Dublin, Ireland
TV: Sky Go Extra, Sky Sports Football, Sky Sports Main Events
Ronaldo's Portugal take on Ireland for their World Cup Qualification Group A clash. A Selecao need a win to keep the pressure on Serbia as they battle for top spot in the group.
Portugal's last clash with Ireland, at the start of September, ended in a 2-1 victory with Ronaldo netting both goals, typically in the dying minutes of the game.
Ronaldo also grabbed a hat-trick in Portugal's last World Cup qualification outing against lowly Luxembourg in October.
Simply put, Ronaldo is at the epicentre of everything Portugal do and the chances of him continuing his red hot international form against Ireland are very high.
Brazil vs Colombia - Neymar to score
When: Friday, November 12, 00.30 (GMT)
Where: Arena Corinthians, Sao Paulo, Brazil
TV: Premier Sports
Over in South America, in the CONMEBOL qualification group, Brazil are six points clear at the top and seemingly cruising to the World Cup in Qatar next year.
Colombia are battling for third/fourth spot in the group with a host of other teams and could do with a win. The last time they met in Colombia it ended in a 0-0 draw, mainly thanks to Napoli keeper David Ospina who kept Neymar and his teammates at bay.
But don't be downhearted, Neymar was on target in the 4-1 win over Uruguay in Brazil last World Cup qualifier and he also netted twice in his last league game for PSG against Bordeaux.
Like Ronaldo, Neymar's shooting boots are certainly on.
