The hosts earned their place in the round of 16 with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Bergerac Perigord last month. After Romain Escarpit had canceled out Malick Fofana's first-half strike, Maxence Caqueret bagged the match-winner in the 78th minute. Bergerac's Christian Gyeboaho was sent off in the 65th minute, which helped Lyon's cause.

They failed to build on that win and lost 3-2 to Rennes in the Ligue 1 last month. They bounced back in the Choc des Olympiques clash against Marseille on Sunday, with Alexandre Lacazette scoring the match-winner in the 37th minute.

The visitors have enjoyed an unbeaten run in all competitions this year, keeping five clean sheets in as many games. They defeated Golden Lion 12-0 in the round of 64 in January, with Yusuf Yazıcı bagging a brace and hat-tricks for Jonathan David and Edon Zhegrova.

They beat Racing Club de France 1-0 in the round of 32, and after playing out a goalless draw against Montpellier last month, they recorded a 4-0 win over Clermont Foot on Sunday, with all four goals being scored in the first half.

Lyon possible starting lineup:
Lopes; Mata, Lovren, O'Brien; Tagliafico, Matic, Caqueret, Maitland-Niles; Cherki, Lacazette, Orban
Lille possible starting lineup:
Chevalier; Santos, Yoro, Ribeiro, Ismaily; Andre, Bentaleb; Zhegrova, Gomes, Gudmundsson; David
