An international break is looming, and while this means there's no Barclays Premier League match on BT Sport this weekend, there's still plenty to look forward to.

Two of the hot favourites for the 2014 FIFA World Cup will be in live action on BT Sport 1 - with the broadcaster airing matches involving both Spain and Brazil.

On Friday October 11th, Vicente del Bosque's Spaniards take on Belarus in a Group I qualifier at the Iberostar Estadi in Palma (kick-off 9pm).

The 2010 FIFA World Cup winners can almost book their flights to Brazil for next summer with a win against their lowly Eastern European opponents, who sit bottom of the group on four points.

Spain are level on points with second-place France at the top of Group I, with only one team to qualify automatically for the finals.

However, Spain still have a game in hand on their near rivals, and will be confident of securing safe passage to South America.

On Saturday October 12th, BT Sport viewers can catch a glimpse of next summer's host team Brazil, as they travel to South Korea for an international friendly.

The match, to be played in the Korean capital Seoul (kick-off 12pm), will give ex-Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari the chance to assess his side's progress as the World Cup countdown continues.

Brazil have disappointed at the last two stagings of football's biggest tournament, losing in the quarter finals in both Germany and South Africa.

And with expectations high at home for Neymar and co, 'Big Phil' is under pressure to deliver a sixth World Cup for Brazil.

BT Sport viewers also have a number of other games to look forward to this weekend, including five Hyundai A-League matches from Australia and Barnet v Wrexham from the Skrill Conference Premier on Sunday October 13th (kick-off 2pm).

Dutch legend Edgar Davids remains in charge at The Hive, despite seeing his Bees side relegated from the Football League at the end of 2012-13.

His side have had a solid start to the season, picking up 21 points from 14 league games so far, six more than Andy Morrell's 19th-place Wrexham.

The Dragons have struggled so far this campaign, having suffered heartbreak in the Conference play-offs at the end of last season.

Wrexham lost out to Newport County in an all-Welsh final at Wembley, condemning themselves to another season outside the Football League.
