Coupe de France: Saint-Etienne-Bordeaux in the last 64

L'ASSE affrontera les Girondins de Bordeaux en 32es de finale de la Coupe de France.
French Cup

The draw for the Coupe de France's last 64 was held on Monday night, with Saint-Etienne-Bordeaux and Rennes-Nancy the only all-L1 clashes as France's élite join the competition in matches to be played on January 7 and 8.

After Les Verts won out 3-1 in the Coupe de la Ligue over Bordeaux earlier this season, Francis Gillot's side will have a chance to take revenge as the two sides face off in the last 64 of the French Cup. Finalists in season 2008-09, Rennes will have to eliminate Ligue 1 rivals Nancy to keep their dreams of a repeat performance afloat.

The draw, held in Amiens on Monday night, also pitted Ligue 1 outfits Rennes and Nancy against each other, while reigning Coupe de France holders Lille - who secured the title in dramatic fashion over PSG last season thanks to a spectaculat Ludovic Obraniak free kick, will face the winners of the amateur-league face-off between Chantilly and Le Portel.

Joint Ligue leaders Montpellier and Paris Saint-Germain both fared well in the draw, pitted against amateurs Prix les Mézières and fifth-division Locminé respectively while OL take on local rivals Lyon-Duchère (D4) and OM battle third-division Parisian side Red Star 93.
