Bruno Genesio : « Il faut savoir gagner avec les tripes comme ce soir »
Lyon's coaching staff and players spoke to OLTV after Friday's 2-0 win over Nîmes.

Bruno Genesio

"It was a difficult match. We faced a very good team that played well. We had a lot of absences and players coming back tired from their national teams. I want to congratulate them. They showed character to win this match. You have to know how to get gutsy wins like tonight. The most important thing is to create opportunities. But we have to be better in the final touch to avoid these tense ends of matches." 



"I'm very happy for tonight's win. We did a good job. Now we're focus on the next Champions League fixture. I have a good understanding with Jason Denayer. Nimes were a difficult opponent." 


Grégory Coupet

"These matches before Champions League dates aren't easy, they're always tough. There were moments when we struggled. We lost track at times by over-complicating our game... We lost a little bit of confidence and moved back. By playing simpler, we could have made things easier for ourselves. There were times when we couldn't find the right solutions... It was important to keep a clean sheet tonight. Anthony Lopes is a war machine. Now we've got momentum on our side, which is the best way to prepare for Hoffenheim." 


Houssem Aouar

"It was a very complicated match, both physically and mentally. Fortunately, we got all three points. That was the mission for tonight. They left a little space behind, which allowed us to put the game away. We changed systems and I played in a different position. We will have to recover well for the Champions League. In the end, we did the necessary work and are satisfied."
