The draw for the last 16 of the Coupe de France has paired OM and OL at the Stade Vélodrome. The match will be played on Tuesday the 30th or Wednesday the 31st of January 2007.

Bernard Lacombe wasn’t surprised by the draw: “I knew it because the Marseille directors were seated next to me. Every year we are drawn against the team whose people I’m sitting next to… It’s a great tie, even though I would have liked the game to be played at Gerland.
It’s been 34 years that we’ve been saying we will win the Coupe de France, so it will be a really tough match for us… especially considering the performances OM is producing at the moment.”

Rest of draw:
Nantes - Lille
Montceau - Bordeaux
Clermont - Lens
Montpellier - Vannes
Libourne St-Seurin - Sedan
Monaco - Sochaux
