Burnley – Sunderland
Sunderland could field youngsters
Scott Arfield and Johann Berg Gudmundsson are set to miss out on Burnley’s FA Cup third-round replay against Sunderland on Tuesday.
Burnley squad: Heaton, Pope, Robinson, Lowton, Keane, Mee, Darikwa, Ward, Barton, Boyd, Hendrick, Vokes, Gray, Barnes, O’Neill, Kightly, Defour, Tarkowski.
Sunderland manager David Moyes was in the spotlight on Saturday for not changing his side when they were trailing to Stoke City.
Now he has the chance to make as many changes as he wants – or at least as many as his injury-ravaged squad will let him.
Real Madrid – Dep. La Coruna
Real Madrid are bidding to break the club’s all-time unbeaten record on Saturday night when they take on Deportivo de la Coruna at home, but will do so without some key players.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema have been left out of the squad for a rest, while Gareth Bale is injured, so none of the BBC forward line is available.
Meanwhile Luka Modric, the team’s key player in midfield, has also been left out, with Coentrao.
