PSG to face Lyon in Coupe de France quarters

French Cup
19/02/2012

The draw for the last eight of the Coupe de France was made on Sunday producing the stand-out fixture between eight-times winners Paris Saint-Germain and Olympique Lyonnais.

Last season's runners-up PSG will pit their wits against Lyon on either the 20th or 21st of March after the draw was made live on French TV. PSG have a rich history in the competition having won it six times in the last 20 years, most recently in 2010 when they beat Monaco 1-0 (after extra-time). The capital side have also reached four of the last six finals.

Lyon, meanwhile, have not enjoyed such success in the tournament, with just four final wins to their name but the one that may give them the mental edge next month, came against none other than PSG back in 2008 when Sydney Govo struck the extra-time winner.

Elsewhere there is an all Ligue 1 clash as Valenciennes go up against 2009 runners-up Rennes. Montpellier will take on GFCO Ajaccio (an amateur club from the national leagues). While Marseille will also play one of two lower-tier sides; either Quevilly (the team that reached the semis two season's ago) or Orléans.

Draw: Matches to be played on the 20th & 21st of March

(Ligue 1 unless stated)

Valenciennes - Rennes

GFCO Ajaccio (National) - Montpellier

Quevilly (National) ou Orléans (National) - Marseille
