Hubert Fournier's reaction
I'm disappointed with the way we played. We weren't up to the challenge. Our first half was pretty dull. We got punished. They had more engagement. We had the resources not to let things get even worse in the second half, but it wasn't enough to get back into the match… there is no doubt we could have done much better. We needed to be more determined. It's no small thing that we conceded two goals from set pieces. We saw a team that didn't play together that well and who didn't produce the required work rate. We can't always field the same starting XI. I take responsibility for my decision, which came with heavy consequences. Unfortunately we rotated the squad not everyone was up to the challenge. We didn't have the match we were wishing for. The Champions League? It's another competition but it's never good to lose as you're preparing for it. We'll have quite a few players with more freshness than tonight. Ghezzal's play brought the attacking players together tonight. The substitutes all brought something interesting to our game. After changing our system, we combined much better in the final 30 minutes.
