ENGLAND

Tottenham plays at Wycombe for only the second time in its history. Their first meeting was four years ago — also in the fourth round of the FA Cup — when Wycombe was leading 3-2 after 89 minutes and came close to causing a shock. But goals from Dele Alli and Son Heung-min rescued the north London club, which was then managed by Mauricio Pochettino. Since that game, Wycombe has risen from the fourth to the second tier for the first time, while Tottenham is now managed by Jose Mourinho. Tottenham is already through to one final this season — of the League Cup — and it has not won the FA Cup since 1991.

Spurs held for 24 minutes by 8th-tier Marine before winning

  Spurs held for 24 minutes by 8th-tier Marine before winning CROSBY, England — Marine's part-time players had been holding off Tottenham for 20 minutes when apprentice plumber Neil Kengni spotted his chance. Some 30 yards (meters) from the goal of Joe Hart, who has played at a World Cup for England, Kengni unleashed a shot. Surely the semiprofessional eighth-tier club could not take the lead against the Premier League's fourth-place team? Only the crossbar spared the blushes and Tottenham of Hart, who tipped the ball over to be sure. Incredibly, it took Tottenham 24 minutes to beat goalkeeper Bayleigh Passant in the biggest mismatch in FA Cup history as Carlos Vinícius broke the unexpectedly long deadlock on Sunday.

Athletic Bilbao tries to keep its good momentum when it hosts Getafe in a match between clubs trying to move into the top half of the league standings. Athletic defeated Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup final a week ago and advanced to the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey on Thursday. It also defeated Real Madrid to make it to the Spanish Super Cup final. Athletic lost its last league match, though, against Barcelona at home. It sits in 13th place, just behind Getafe, which has won two in a row following a four-game winless streak.

Senators place veteran defenseman Braydon Coburn on waivers .
The veteran defenseman carries a cap hit of $1.7M this season and was part of the cap-clearing package acquired from the Tampa Bay Lightning this offseason. © Marc DesRosiers-USA TODAY Sports Ottawa Senators defenseman Braydon Coburn Coburn, 35, is only a few months away from winning the Stanley Cup with the Lightning, though he certainly wasn’t a huge part of their postseason run. He suited up just three times during the playoffs and ended up traded along with Cedric Paquette and a draft pick as part of Tampa’s attempt to get cap-compliant.
