OL to face Bordeaux, VA v Lille in last 16

Gomis à la lutte avec Henrique.
French Cup
22/01/2012

The draw for the last 16 of the Coupe de France produced four all-Ligue 1 ties, including Lyon against Bordeaux and Valenciennes against Lille.

 

Lyon have beaten two fourth-tier sides to reach this stage, while Bordeaux are through to the last 16 thanks to two victories in penalty shoot-outs. Now, Les Girondins go to the Stade de Gerland for what is a rematch of the 2009-10 Champions League quarter-final.

Holders Lille face a stiff test too as they make the short trip to face North rivals Valenciennes. VA may be appearing at this stage of the competition for the first time in five years, but they have not lost at home to LOSC in the league since March 2006 and will pose a serious threat to Lille's chances of successfully defending their trophy.

Elsewhere, Paris Saint-Germain must go to Dijon in what is a repeat of the sides' meeting in the Coupe de la Ligue last 16 in October. On that occasion, Dijon came from 2-0 down to win 3-2.

The other all top-flight tie will see Rennes - the 2009 finalists who last won the Coupe de France in 1971 - entertain Evian-Thonon-Gaillard. Meanwhile, Bourg-Péronnas - the fourth-tier club who eliminated Ajaccio after extra-time in the last 32 - have been rewarded with a glamour home draw against Marseille, while Montpellier will go to Châteauroux if they can win at Tours on Monday.

There will be at least two clubs from outside the top two divisions in the quarter-finals, after Gazélec Ajaccio were drawn at home to Drancy, and 2010 semi-finalists Quevilly were paired with Orléans.
