Will Olympique Lyonnais remain on course for Coupe de France glory?

Right now, Laurent Blanc’s side continue to underwhelm in Ligue 1, sat ninth, despite Friday night’s 3-1 victory over Angers.

So, winning a first Coupe de France in 11 years could prove to be les Gones’ best route back into UEFA competition.

In the early rounds, Lyon overcame Metz and Chambéry, before needing a penalty shootout to oust Lille.

That tie finished 2-2, with Corentin Tolisso, Moussa Dembélé, Maxence Caqueret and Dejan Lovren all converted from 12 yards as Lyon advanced 4-2.

So now, despite their inconsistent league form, the five-times winners are big favourites to reach the semi-finals.

Grenoble Foot meantime are dreaming of a first semi-final appearance since 2009.

Vincent Hognon’s team ply their trade in Ligue 2, currently sat seventh, following a goalless draw with Le Havre on Saturday.

In this tournament, Grenoble have already won five ties, taking out AS Illzach Modenheim, Villefranche Beaujolais, Nîmes Olympique, Stade Plabennécois and Vierzon, to set up this glamour fixture.

OL are not at the peak of their powers, but should still be too strong at Parc Olympique Lyonnais.
