A preview of what’s happening in European football on Tuesday:

ENGLAND

Manchester United have a chance to lift their spirits after Middlesbrough’s shock FA Cup exit by playing against a Burnley side who have won the Premier League once all season. United are trying to hold on to fourth place to qualify for the Champions League. Burnley are trying to move up the bottom of the table. The other teams in the relegation zone are also in action with Newcastle hosting Everton and Watford at West Ham. It’s Newcastle’s first game since the end of the January transfer window, when the club splashed out over $100 million on new players, including Bruno Guimaraes.

ITALY

After losing 2-1 to bitter rivals AC Milan in the city derby, Inter are looking to bounce back against AS Roma in the Coppa Italia quarter-finals. It’s a big night for Roma coach Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese tactician takes on Inter, the club he led to the Serie A-Italian Cup-Champions League treble in 2010. Under Mourinho, Roma are having an inconsistent season. The team fell to seventh place in the table after drawing 0-0 at home to struggling Genoa at the weekend.

FRANCE

Monaco take on second division Amiens for a place in the Coupe de France semi-finals. Monaco are looking sharp again under attacking-minded coach Philippe Clément and start heavy favorites at home to 14th-placed Amiens. Monaco striker Wissam Ben Yedder looks close to his best form since Clement took over and will be confident of adding to his five goals in the competition this season. The French striker has scored 21 times in all competitions. Monaco was vice-champion of France last year against Paris Saint-Germain.
