The Red and Whites had not reached this stage of the competition since the 2005-2006 season, when they were knocked out by OGC Nice. This year, it's Bastia standing in the way of a date at the Stade de France, where the Monegasques' first-team last made an appearance in 2010 at the final of the Coupe de France. AS Monaco will host the Corsican outfit at the Stade Louis-II on Tuesday 3 or Wednesday 4 February.
The two sides have met once before in this competition, back on 30 January 2001 in the last 16. Late goals from Grégory Lacombe and Marco Simone (83 and 89 minutes!) turned the game around after AS Monaco had trailed 1-0 since the 50th minute. Claude Puel's team went all the way to the final that season, where they were beaten by Olympique Lyon.
