It's PSG next for Carquefou

French Cup


After their magnificent performance in defeating Marseille in the previous round, minnows Carquefou, from the French fifth grade, have the chance of another mighty scalp in the quarter-final, where they face PSG.

As with the Marseille game, the match against PSG will be played at the nearby Stade de la Beaujoire-Louis Fonteneau, home of Carquefou's senior neighbours, FC Nantes.

The Marseille game drew a near-capacity crowd of 35,000 and there is certain to be a similar number for the match against PSG, who are going for a Cup double after defeating Lens 2-1 in the League Cup final.
