The Coupe de France round of 16 will be headlined by the biggest fixture in French football, between Olympique de Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain a sure-to-be sold-out Orange Vélodrome on Wednesday 8 February - just a week before the capital club's European clash with Bayern!

The Coupe de France round of 16 will see the intensity stepped up several notches as the country's two biggest clubs - and traditional arch-rivals - do battle for a place in the quarters.

Neymar Jr settled the only match between the sides so far this season - 1-0 at the Parc des Princes in Round 11 - but in a packed Orange Vélodrome, with Igor Tudor's Olympique de Marseille in rare form and in an upset-friendly cup context, anything could happen in this unmissable clash.

The draw - which came in the wake of Paris Saint-Germain's 7-0 hammering of sixth-division minnows Pays de Cassel on Monday - also yielded a number of all-Ligue 1 Uber Eats clashes, including a mouth-watering clash between Lyon and LOSC at the Groupama Stadium.

Auxerre will be the only top-flight side playing lower-league opposition - in the form of Ligue 2 BKT side Rodez - while fourth-division outfit Vierzon, who take on Ligue 2 BKT's Grenoble, are the only non-professional club left in the running.

The matches will be played on Wednesday, 8 February 2023.
