Bruno Genesio and his players gave their post-match verdicts to OLTV following Thursday's Europa League win over Villarreal.

Bruno Genesio
« It was important to win again tonight. It's a good result but nothing is settled yet. We must stay humble before the second leg... We know we can score against any team. »

Nabil Fekir
« We played a good game overall. We are a little disappointed to have conceded a goal… We showed more desire tonight than on Sunday... we need to play like this every match. »

Tanguy Ndombele
« We are happy. We take a lead into the second leg, but it's not over. We must play for a good result. It was a group effort tonight, that's what makes the difference ... I'm happy to score my first goal. But the most important thing is the win. »

Bertrand Traoré
« We have shown that we have character. It paid off tonight. We have to keep this mindset, no matter the competition or the location. I like this competition. »

Anthony Lopes
« This is a good result but we must not forget the return leg. We played a very good game, especially in the second half. We did not want to concede a goal, it's a shame... I try to do my job as best as possible. My thoughts on entering the top 10 list for European appearances with Lyon? I will try to break Grégory Coupet's record.»

Lucas Tousart
« We haven't qualified yet. It will be a big match in Spain. We knew how to put away our chances at the right moment. It hurt them... We worked together. We show up in the big moments. »

« I'm happy, I helped the team... I'm always thrilled to score, but I'm delighted tonight for helping the team score great goals. »


« We played very well in the second half. It was important to react after three defeats in the league. We must do the same thing on Sunday. »
