Hours after arriving in Spain, the Lyon coach and central defender Jérémy Morel faced the media at the Estadio de la Cerámica to preview tomorrow’s Europa League Round-of-32 return leg against Villarreal.

« We can expect the same kind of match as the first leg, with chances for both sides. I’m not going to single out players after the game against Lille. The whole group is responsible, even the coaching staff. Football is the most humbling thing there is… the top three is still within reach. We have 12 matches left. I still believe we can do it. Since the beginning we’ve had the ambition to do well in the Europa League, and it’s particularly strong today. I expect my players to show pride and give a performance worthy of an important match such as this. We must play our game, not worry too much about maintaining our lead. »

« It’s only halftime. The goal we conceded doesn’t put us in the best situation. Lately we’ve have trouble holding on to leads. Every day we work on finding solutions to these problems. It’s in our heads… It’s not normal for the coach to raise his voice as he did. I was the first to agree with him. It’s unacceptable to play so differently over two different halves. This isn’t the league. There is a qualification at stake. We know what this can bring us. »
