Anthony Lopes : « une belle récompense »
Lyon's keeper, named Man of the Match of the 118th Rhone derby , spoke to OLTV after Sunday's dramatic 2-1 win at Saint-Etienne.

"It's a massive feeling, a great satisfaction. We've shown that we're a tight group. Nothing is simple in a derby. Saint-Etienne were confident and we were in a drought. We showed character. We're lacking consistency. We must now do the same in the upcoming matches to settle in the top three. It's always very nice to be decisive for your team and your club. We will savor this win quietly. We like to have our fans with us. It's also a nice reward for them. We will have time to finally dive head-first into the the Coupe de France.

Bruno Genesio

"Everything was incredible. The players showed up. I want to congratulate them. I wanted to use an even more offensive system and attack heavily on the flanks. We work both systems on a regular basis. We needed to win this game. It was a beautiful derby. Both teams were fully engaged. Antho [Lopes] made decisive plays. Nabil showed a lot of composure. We were successful. It was a beautiful show. Now we have to repeat it. The subs were also decisive. It also shows the soul of this squad."


Léo Dubois

"The scenario was superb. It was a tough match. This goal saved us. It was wonderful The main thing was to win. We're very proud. There were spaces to send crosses to... The derbies here are intense. We took six points out of six."
