Newcastle is into the last eight for the first time since 2006. Leicester hosts Chelsea looking to return to the semifinals after a 38-year wait.

In Sunday's only Premier League game, Watford hosts Southampton sitting a point above the relegation zone.

Real Madrid now only trails Barcelona by a single point going into Sunday's game at last-placed Espanyol. Barcelona was held by Celta Vigo to 2-2 after conceding in the 88th minute on Saturday. Madrid has yet to lose points after the pandemic break. In Sunday's other games, Levante hosts Real Betis, Villarreal plays Valencia and Granada takes on Eibar.
