Nice head into this cup tie in decent nick. The Eagles are undefeated in their previous seven league and cup matches, winning four and drawing three.

(odds taken 1550 GMT, Wednesday 29 January)

In the French Cup, Nice have secured two home wins. They saw off Frejus Saint-Raphael before edging past Red Star Paris in the previous round. This will no doubt be their toughest Coupe de France test yet, though.

Lyon Preview – Can the in-form Kids leave Nice with a win and a place in the quarters?

Lyon are sitting nicely in fifth place in Ligue 1 at the moment. The Kids have picked up only nine wins from 21 league encounters, but they have been beaten just seven times. Only the current top four and Reims have lost fewer matches up until now.

Rudi Garcia’s men have had their problems at the Groupama Stadium this term, with four of their league defeats coming on home turf, but they have been excellent on the road. In fact, only champions & current league leaders PSG have a better away record, as Lyon have taken an impressive 18 points from a possible 33.

In the league meeting between the two this season, Lyon secured a narrow 2-1 win over Nice at the Groupama Stadium. It was an eventful match with players sent off on either side, but two first-half goals did the damage for the home team.
