Toulouse out to claim PSG scalp in French Cup

18 January 2016, 19:01

Paris - Toulouse will aim to thwart Paris Saint-Germain in their quest for a second straight domestic treble when the two sides meet for the second time in four days in the last 32 of the French Cup on Tuesday.

PSG left Toulouse with a narrow 1-0 win in Ligue 1 on Saturday courtesy of Zlatan Ibrahimovic's second-half strike, but Dominique Arribage's side were buoyed by their display against the runaway league leaders.

"It won't be the same story tomorrow (Tuesday)," Arribage said at Monday's press conference.

"It's up to us to rise to the occasion. We have plenty of hope because they know we could hang with them and beat them.

"We have to go to the Parc des Princes full of ambition. We're setting ourselves up for a good performance, we're not going there to concede five (goals) but that could happen."

Laurent Blanc is likely to rest some key players amid a congested fixture list which includes another meeting with Toulouse on January 27 in the semi-finals of the League Cup.

PSG are set to embark on a run of seven matches in little over three weeks before hosting Chelsea in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on February 16, and they would play another game before facing the Premier League champions should they advance on Tuesday.

There are three other all-Ligue 1 ties, with record 10-time winners Marseille hosting Montpellier, 2014 champions Guingamp visiting Gazelec Ajaccio and Angers at home to 2013 winners Bordeaux, as a record 17 top-flight sides remain in the competition at this stage.

Lyon will look to recover from Sunday's 1-0 defeat to bitter rivals Saint-Etienne when they travel to third-tier Chambly on Wednesday, while Monaco go to second-tier Evian.

Gazelec Ajaccio v Guingamp, Rennes v Bourg-en-Bresse (1700), Angers v Bordeaux (1730), Bastia v Sochaux, Sarre Union v Niort (1800), Paris Saint-Germain v Toulouse (2000)
