Olympique Lyonnais will host PSG in the last 16 of the Coupe de la Ligue. The match will take place at the Stade Gerland on either October 24 or 25.

Qualification against the Parisians will see Olympique Lyonnais host the winner of Nancy-Toulouse again at the Stade Gerland in the quarter-finals. The winner of the quarter-final will then host the semi-final against one of Le Mans, Lens, Sochaux and Dijon.
After clashing in the Trophée des Champions, Lyon and PSG are destined to meet no less than four times in 2006/07.

It will be the fourth meeting between the two clubs in the Coupe de la Ligue.
At the Parc des Princes, PSG won 2-1 in the last 16 back in 1994/95.
Olympique Lyonnais got their revenge in 1996/97 in the round of 32, by the same scoreline.
In 1997/98, PSG won again at the Parc des Princes, 1-0 in the last 32.
