The Parisians, who have knocked out Le Mans (4-1), Saint-Étienne (6-1) and Reims (3-0), will be the 'home' side at the Stade de France against OL, who have won the trophy once (2001) in four previous final appearances.

The pair have met already this season with the Rouge-et-Bleu winning their Week 6 Ligue 1 meeting at the Groupama Stadium 1-0 thanks to a late Neymar Jr (88') goal. They'll also face each other in L1 before the final on 9 February at the Parc des Princes.
