Anthony Lopes : « il y a eu beaucoup de maîtrise ce soir »
Lyon's players spoke to OLTV after Wednesday's 3-1 win over Caen in the Coupe de France quarterfinal.

Maxwel Cornet

"There have been tense moments lately, especially after the defeat in Monaco. This match was very important to us. We wanted to show another side of ourselves tonight. We had to be decisive. I try to be up to the challenge when the coach calls on me. Being on the pitch tonight was good for me because I haven't had a lot of playing time."

Pape Cheikh

"I'm very happy with this victory. It was important to win tonight, and we managed to do it. It was a tough match. We had to play fast when we had the ball. I like playing with two in the middle, as we did tonight. I am well adapted here. Now I'm ready to play matches, and I know how to adapt according to what the coach wants." 


Anthony Lopes 

"Qualifying makes us happy, it was essential. We've always have the goal of lifting the cup at the end of the season. We will wait for tomorrow's draw. We had to be serious and show improvement after Sunday's disappointment at Monaco. Tonight there was a lot of control. We hope to be hosts in the semifinal, but I have no particular preference in terms of an opponent."
