Nabil Fekir : « C’est possible, on l’a déjà fait »
The Olympique Lyonnais captain spoke to the press two days ahead of Sunday's marquee match against Paris Saint-Germain at Groupama Stadium.

OL-PSG: a test ahead of Barça?

"We take every match one at a time. All the players are thinking about Barça, but there are matches to play before. Playing against PSG is like a Champions League game. We all know the quality of Paris, but we are prepared for that. We expect a tough match, like all games against them. This will be a good test before the match against Barça."


The first leg

"It's a bad memory because I really wanted to play, but unfortunately the injury in the early minutes prevented me from continuing. It was a tough match for us. It was special because there were two red cards. The 5-0 [score] hurt, but we have to move on. The next match will be different. It's possible to win, we've already done it."


The right time to play against Paris?

"PSG is a great team that wins titles every year. I don't know if there is a better time to play them, but we know they're thinking about Manchester United. The absence of Neymar is a plus for us, but it's not just him - even if he's their best player, in my opinion."


Thoughts on PSG

"They're a team that control possession and attack a lot... Last year we played a very physical game and caused them problems. We'll have to do the same this time around." 


Playing at home

"It's different when we play at home, the fans give us strength... I hope that Sunday is the beginning of a beautiful run of matches at home for us."


Putting his injuries behind him

"I feel good. I had some physical problems at the beginning of the season, but now I feel better. I worked well in training with the physios to come back strong."
