Match preview

Will Lille cruise through to the round of 16?

Earlier this month, les Dogues began their Coupe de France campaign with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Troyes.

Jonathan David and then Mohamed Bayo on the scoresheet.

Les Nordistes last won this trophy in 2011, doing the double that season, more recently claiming the Ligue 1 title on the final day two seasons ago.

Right now, Paulo Fonseca’s side are sixth, having beaten Troyes again on Sunday, this time running out 5-1 winners.

Bayo and David bagged braces, before Alan Virginius got in on the act.

Visitors Pau FC compete in Ligue 2, currently sat just above the relegation zone, following a 1-0 defeat at Bastia last Friday night.

In cup terms, les Maynats overcame Salinières Aigues Mortes and US Colomiers in early rounds, before eliminating top-tier Montpellier at the start of this month.

So, Pau are on the cusp of reaching the last 16 for just the second time in 25 years.

LOSC Lille though should be far too strong at Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
