Both Bastia and PSG will be approaching their weekend clash in completely different ways.
Paris boss Laurent Blanc has slammed a fixture pile-up that is stretching his expensively assembled squad to its limits.
The capital club meet Barcelona in their Champions League quarter-final first-leg on Wednesday, only a week after having overcome Saint-Etienne 4-1 in the French Cup semi-final.
Naturally, the club’s attentions will be partly on that heavyweight battle with Barca, but Blanc can only shuffle his pack so much.
Edinson Cavani and Lucas Moura are both doubts, while David Luiz and Thiago Motta have been added to the injury list after going down with thigh and hamstring problems respectively.
Blanc has threatened to pick his reserve team against Bastia, although the promise of silverware may ultimately sharpen his approach.
Bastia, by contrast, haven’t been in a domestic final since losing the Coupe de France to FC Lorient in 2002 with a side containing Michael Essien.
Their only major domestic silverware came in 1981 when they beat Olympique de Marseille to life the Coupe de France and Ghislain Printant’s side will be desperate not to let this opportunity pass them by.
