Match preview

How far will Olympique Lyonnais go in this season’s Coupe de France?

Lyon have won 21 major honours in their history, including this trophy five times, although they haven’t captured any silverware for 11 years.

Les Gones finished eighth in Ligue 1 last season so, with no European football, this competition has to be a priority.

Right now though, Laurent Blanc’s team are eighth in the table again, following a shock 1-0 home defeat to Clermont Foot on New Year’s Day.

Even so, OL should be too strong in this tie.

Metz meantime had spent six of the previous eight seasons in the top division before being relegated last season.

In cup terms, les Grenats won this trophy twice in the 1980s, but had to overcame SAS Épinal in November just to get this far.

Will Lyon avoid an embarrassing early exit at Groupama Stadium?
