World No 2 Murray came through in straight sets for the second match in a row when he overcame John Isner 7-6, 6-4, 6-3 in the fourth round to book a place in the quarter-finals of the 2016 Roland Garros. The Scot will take on Frenchman Gasquet, who will have the complete support of the home crowd on court Philippe-Chatrier. The two-time Grand Slam champion will be a slight favourite to progress owing to his head-to-head record, but following tough encounters in the opening rounds, Gasquet will have a chance to cause an upset.
He came through in four sets against fifth seed Kei Nishikori in the fourth round for his best ever run in the French Open. The fourth round was his best showing in his last 12 appearances on the red clay of Roland Garros. The World No 12 has dropped just one set thus far and apart from Nishikori, he overcame Nick Kyrgios in the third round.
The winner of this clash could face defending champion Stan Wawrinka in the semi-finals, if the Swiss comes through his quarter-final against Albert Ramos-Vinolas, who recorded a shock victory over No 8 seed Milos Raonic.
