Match preview

All is not well at Olympique Lyonnais, so will they avoid being on the wrong end of a huge Coupe de France shock?

At the weekend, les Gones horrendous Ligue 1 form continued, this time beaten 2-1 at home by Strasbourg.

This means, since the start of November, Laurent Blanc’s team have won just one of six league matches, meaning they’re all the way down in ninth.

Lyon fans, once again, protested against the board during Saturday’s game.

New majority owner John Textor, who’s just spent €800 million on 77.49% of the club, was in attendance for the first time, surely wondering what he’s got himself into.

In cup terms, Lyon are looking to remain on course to win this trophy for the first time in 11 years, having edged out Metz of Ligue 2 in the previous round.

Hosts Chambéry SF are one of just two fifth-tier clubs to have made it this far, plying their trade in Championnat National 3.

Chambéry have had to come through three rounds already, beating Bourgoin-Jallieu, Rumilly-Vallières and Aubagne.

Amazingly, Chambéry did actually reach the Coupe de France quarter-finals 12 years ago, with that the only time they’ve gone beyond this stage.

Will Lyon be far too strong, or will this be an historic upset?
