The Coupe de France's last 16 draw yielded two all-Ligue 1 Conforama clashes while pitting four-time reigning champions Paris Saint-Germain against third-division Villefranche.

The draw for the Coupe de France last 16 was held on Thursday, handing Olympique Loynnais - 2-0 winners in Amiens earlier the evening - a trip to Brittany to face 2009 and 2014 winners Guingamp while sending 2011 winners LOSC in the same direction to do battle with Rennes.


Meanwhile PSG will head south to Villefranche-sur-Saône near Lyon for what should be a very special evening for the third-division club and its fans.

SM Caen head to Corsica to test SC Bastia - a proud club playing in Ligue 1 Conforama as recently as 2016-17 before being dropped four divisions due to financial difficulties - while Dijon take on fourth-division Croix away.

To be determined

The winner of the postponed FC Nantes-Toulouse FC last 16 clash - now set for 16:30 on Sunday, 27 January, will travel to fourth-division Vitré.
