Leauge Cup “Round of 16” draw announced

This afternoon, the FFF announced the draws for the Round of 16 for the League Cup. This next round of matcups will take place on January 12th, 2010.

At least one Ligue 2 team will make it to the Round of 8, as high-flying CS Sedan will take on Clermont Foot.

Defending champions and League Cup holders Bordeaux will travel to Le Mans to try to defend their title.

In the other games of note, Marseille will be traveling to St-Ettienne, after Les Verts defeated Nice quite handily. Struggling Ligue 1 side Lille will be hosting still undefeated Rennes in a game that might possibly be the best to watch in this round.

And two teams that are playing quite well this year (compared to where most peopel thought they would be) Lens and Lorient, will also be playing against one another in the Round of 16.

Here are the fixtures for January 12th.
