Fourth division FC Libourne Saint-Seurin will host SC Bastia in the French Cup quarter-finals.

Fourth division FC Libourne Saint-Seurin have been rewarded for their French Cup victory over LB Châteauroux with a home quarter-final tie against SC Bastia.

Poor away record
Having beaten Châteauroux 2-0, giant-killers Libourne will host Bastia, who have only won twice away from home in Le Championnat all season, on 10 March. There are also two representatives from the French second division in the last eight. RC Strasbourg will visit CS Sedan-Ardennes while Nîmes Olympique SC are set to host Didier Deschamps’ AS Monaco FC.

Top-flight encounter
The only all-top-flight tie is the clash at Parc des Princes between Paris Saint-Germain FC and FC Lorient, who needed penalty kicks to beat SC Louhans-Cuiseaux in the previous round.
