A packed St James' Park will look to roar Newcastle to the EFL Cup final, as they face Southampton in the second-leg of the semi-final.

The tie is finely poised after a 1-0 win for Newcastle in the first game at St Mary's, but Eddie Howe's men are expected to seal their place in the final with the Magpies unbeaten in 13 competitive home matches this season.

Southampton, though, have won their last two games on the road and will hope to spring a surprise as they look to lift their first major piece of silverware since their 1976 FA Cup success.

Newcastle have the upper hand in the head-to-head stats, with the Magpies unbeaten in their last five meetings – including a 4-1 Premier League win back in November.

OddsLuton 19/20, Draw 12/5, Cardiff 16/5

Tuesday's only Championship game sees Luton play host to Cardiff, in a contest that could have big implications at both ends of the table.

The Hatters know a win would see them move into the play-off places and, potentially, into the top four, while the Bluebirds are currently just one place and three points outside of the relegation zone, after failing to win any of their last nine league assignments.

No less than five of those games have finished in draws for the Welsh outfit, while Luton have drawn seven of their 13 Championship matches at Kenilworth Road.

It was the Hatters that won the reverse fixture 2-1 back in August, with Luke Freeman scoring the opener – the midfielder can be backed at 6/1 to Score Anytime on Tuesday.

We've reached the quarter finals of the Coppa Italia and last season's winners kick off the last-eight fixtures, with Inter Milan handed a home tie against Atalanta.

The hosts have lost just one of their seven competitive matches since the World Cup break – although their last home game did see them beaten 1-0 by Empoli.

Atalanta head to the San Siro unbeaten in their last six matches - four wins and two draws - and have scored 22 goals during that run, including five in the last round against Spezia.

The visitors have failed to beat Inter in their last six meetings but expect goals on Tuesday, with Over 2.5 in Goals Over/Under available to back at 7/10.
