Lyon's coach and his squad gave their verdict on Sunday's 5-1 rout of Toulouse at Groupama Stadium.

Bruno Genesio

"The players made things easy because we played simply with a lot of movement and availability. We scored very fast, but we conceded a goal quickly too. The team was able to react and start over. Facing a defensive opponent, when there is movement and simplicity, it's difficult for opposing teams to resist. Despite the changes, the players responded. Now we have to turn to Strasbourg. This is the last game before Barcelona and we will prepare well."

Moussa Dembélé

"We produced a beautiful performance and knew how to put away our chances. Personally, I didn't need much to score. The important thing was to be in the right place at the right time, and that ended up paying off."


Lucas Tousart

"Other than conceding the equalizing goal, we managed the game very well. That's what's most important. We made the match easy. We didn't waste time after they tied the game. We went ahead. We had a quiet second half. We continued to play, to make differences until the end. It's a good result for our confidence." 

Léo Dubois

"This was a very serious week after the defeat in Monaco. We have to rely on matches like these to continue... Playing with rhythm allowed us to spread the lines and play in small spaces. We're still alive in three competitions, Strasbourg are the next objective and we will have to be solid." 

Nabil Fekir

"Playing with my little brother is an unforgettable moment. It makes me very happy, but I hope it 's only the beginning. I'm very proud to play with him. Our father had been waiting for this for a long time. Yassin Fekir gets along with everyone. I try to give him advice because I have more experience, but he has a lot of quality."


Yassin Fekir

"Playing with my brother was very emotional. It's a first with him. He wasn't on the pitch the previous times that I'd entered the games. It's an advantage to have your brother in the locker room, but the other players have welcomed me perfectly into the group. I was happy to play with my brother tonight."
