PSG draw Lyon in French League Cup

September 22, 2006

PARIS, Sept 22 (Reuters) - Five-times champions Olympique Lyon were drawn against Paris St Germain on Friday for a place in the French League Cup quarter-finals.

Lyon, who are looking for a record sixth consecutive title, are widely expected to field a second-string team for the match.

Holders Nancy host Toulouse, while Olympique Marseille, who have not won a trophy since their Champions League triumph in 1993, travel to St Etienne.

AJ Auxerre are home to Girondins Bordeaux.

The other all-Ligue 1 games pitch Le Mans against RC Lens and Lille against Rennes, with all the ties being played on Oct. 24-25.

Lyon and Bordeaux were granted a bye for the previous round after qualifying for the Champions League at the end of last season.

The League Cup winner will play in the UEFA Cup next season.
