Special envoy to Lyon

Lucas Tousart (middle) : “We needed this benchmark match. We all had fun tonight, and I think we also made fun of people in the stadium or in front of their TV. We show a beautiful image of Lyon. It is a pleasure. There is a lack of regularity over the season. We are aware of it. Compared to that, it may be the worst season since I have been there. But we applied the coach's tactical instructions very well. We were very disciplined. There were hot situations in the second half, but it was pretty well under control. We did a full match. He must help us for the future. The goal ? I will leave the club at the end of the season. So I wanted to leave an imprint of my passage. I hope the end of the season will allow me, we will allow it for all of us. We all want to bring something positive for the club, the team and the city. A crazy emotion, indescribable emotions. Chills. Goalscorer against Barça and Juve? These are luxury goals, it's true (smile). I don't do it on purpose either (smile). (…) We played very well in the first half, we made them thwart. And in second, we resisted well. They may have been a little worse than usual, but we were able to make a big match too. (…) Personal revenge? No. Even if we are the best player in the world, we cannot be unanimous, especially in my position. I don't have a problem with it. I'm straight in my sneakers, and I'm moving on. ”

Anthony Lopes (goalkeeper) : “We are only halfway through the double confrontation. We may be in history if we pass this 8th finals and make a good performance there. Now, you shouldn't ignite. We are quite lucid about what we produced this evening. Before the return, there are a lot of matches to play. The heads are really turned towards the derby Sunday evening (against ASSE), a match which it will absolutely be necessary to win. (…) The most important thing was not to concede a goal. Lucas (Tousart) put in a pretty extraordinary goal, I think he chooses his matches to score them (smile). He still scores in 8th (like last year in Barcelona, ​​note) ... It is the victory of a collective that must be remembered. We have a big defensive solidity, but it's not only about the defenders, it's a collective work, the ten players in front of me who do an extraordinary job. If we can continue to make sure that I don't have a maximum of job, so much the better. (…) In the first half, we saw an OL who had the ball, possession at times, and who was really dangerous offensively. After when everything works collectively, there are certain individuals who are above and who unlock situations. The confusing OL? I can't say the opposite, it's true (smile). (…) Strongly Sunday? Yes, now, strongly Sunday! Pumped ? There is no choice. ”

Marçal (defender) : “We did a good teamwork. We played well, worked well together. We are happy to finish with a small advance. We didn't take a goal. This is important ... They did not have many opportunities, like Metz in the previous match. It shows that this pattern (3-4-3), especially defensively, can be interesting. In terms of results in any case, it works, we won twice. But I think the most interesting thing is that the coach can change, even without making a replacement. (…) We are happy. We will stay happy until tomorrow (this Thursday). We deserved. We had a good game. But tomorrow, we're going to start thinking about the championship, it's very important. We are not in the ranking that Lyon deserves. (…) We win, it's Juve, they aimed to score at least one goal here. It's normal that we went back a little (in the second period). But we stayed compact. It was the match that demanded that. And we do a good defensive job. When Maxwell Cornet came out, I changed places. It was a little different. But we stayed strong, strong. And we did not concede a goal. The clash with Ronaldo? I'm trying to save some time. I don't actually remember. Was he pissed off? It's normal. Especially because Max was injured and it has already taken time. I understand. Saint Etienne ? We're going to start thinking about the derby tomorrow. Today, we're going to stay quiet, we're going to take a break because it was hot (smile). ”
