Bruno Genesio : « On a tenu tête au grand Barça »
Lyon's coach spoke to OLTV following Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Barcelona at Groupama Stadium in the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie.

"Overall, this is a satisfactory result.. We will have chances to advance if we score at the Camp Nou. We hoped to do better in terms of our game. We were able to compete with our opponent in the first half. We had three good chances in the first half. We unfortunately suffered a lot in the second half and conceded too many chances. We were a little too passive... We would have liked to have been more aggressive... Our opponent didn't allow us to do it. It's important emphasize the courage that the players showed, the way they defended. We stood up to the great Barça. The team is improving and maturing. Last year we would have lost this game. We have every chance of qualifying and anything can happen in the second leg. We will have an additional advantage at the Camp Nou with the return of our captain, Nabil Fekir. It was a first Champions League knockout match for most of us. It wasn't an easy match to prepare. We're still alive."
