So, what sort of teams and performance both these sides put out remains to be seen. Nonetheless it looks like a decent Wednesday night game of football.
Even though Newcastle boss Steve Bruce is coming under increased pressure at the helm, his side actually did the double over Burnley last season, and so Magpies fans can be hopeful of a positive result tonight.
Both these sides have failed to really kickstart their seasons so far, with Newcastle coming into this one on the back of two consecutive losses, losing on both occasions to Aston Villa and West Ham Utd.
Sean Dyche’s side themselves are in ponderous form, despite showing glimpses of creativity in their loss against Liverpool and its not two games without a point following that loss at Anfield and a home defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion.
Odds wise, the bookies seemingly favor the home advantage for Newcastle, with the Toon available at a price a shade above evens at 11/10. Burnley can be backed at 5/2 while the draw is available a shade under 3/1, with a best price of 12/5 on offer.
Team news should be all important in this one with both these managers looking to keep the first team squad healthy for the long term Premier League survival battle which will no doubt be ahead.
And would it be any disappointment for either side to be knocked out of the tournament this early? Probably not.
