Southampton can help rescue a wretched season so far if they can overturn a 1-0 deficit at Newcastle United in Tuesday’s second leg of their League Cup semifinal but it will be a daunting task. More details at www.soccer6.co.za.

M1 Pacos Ferreira vs Gil Vicente: Pacos Ferreira are bottom of the table in Portugal with one win all season. Gil Vicente sit just above the relegation places.

M2 Annecy vs Caen: Annecy are on an 11 match unbeaten run. Caen have drawn three of their past four games.

M3 Girondins Bordeaux vs Le Havre: Top of the table clash in Ligue 2 where Le Havre have a seven point lead over second placed Bordeaux.

M4 Carlisle United vs Barrow: Carlisle are looking for a fourth successive victory. Barrow have won one of their last nine matches but are still within one win of the League Two promotion places.

M5 Crewe Alexandra vs Stockport County: Crewe lost 0-2 at Stockport on Boxing Day and now host them just over one month later in League Two action.

M6 Luton Town vs Cardiff City: Cardiff have won on their last three visits to Kenilworth Road but then since lost twice at home to Luton.

M7 Salford City vs Walsall: Salford won their last League Two match 3-0 at home against Gillingham, ending a four-match winless streak. Walsall have the chance to extend their run without defeat to seven League Two matches.

M8 Union Berlin vs VfL Wolfsburg: Union’s last three wins have them up to second in the Bundesliga but they change focus to the cup for the visit of Wolfsburg, who have scored 12 goals in their previous three matches.

M9 Inter Milan vs Atalanta: First of the Copa Italia quarter-finals. Inter are unbeaten in their last eight meetings with Atalanta.

M10 Newcastle United vs Southampton: Newcastle are already 1-0 up from the away leg last week as they host the return leg of the League Cup semi-final.

Suggested permutation:

R2.00 3 x 3 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1
