Promotion candidates across the second, third and fourth tiers of English soccer will look to spring some surprises on Sunday, as the fifth round of the FA Cup continues. 

League Two side Crawley Town gets a crack at Stoke City; League One club Stevenage, coached by former Colorado Rapids manager Gary Smith, will look to topple Tottenham; and League Championship side Brighton & Hove Albion gets a crack at bringing down Liverpool with places in the quarterfinals on the line. 

Sunday's match with perhaps the most on the line, though, takes place in Paris, where PSG and Montpellier do battle with first place in Ligue 1 up for grabs. Big-spending PSG is nursing a one-point edge over Montpellier and will look to put some distance between the two, who are both comfortably in front of third-place Lille.

For those in search of their Barcelona fix, the Spanish giants clash with Valencia in a meeting of two top-three teams in Spain. Both are well behind league leaders Real Madrid, but maintaining their positions for a place in next year's UEFA Champions League group stage is still on the docket.
