OL's Coupe Gambardella run ends against Montpellier
OL's Gambardella Cup campaign ended Sunday with a 2-0 quarterfinal loss at Montpellier. Goals in either side of halftime from Vidal (24 ', 1-0) and Vercruysse (85, 2-0) sealed Les Gones' fate in the tournament they last one 22 years ago, 1997. At least there's still the UEFA Youth League for Lyon.
Head coach Gilles Rousset on Sunday's loss:
We're obviously disappointed. It's not easy. We were beaten by aggressive team. We had targeted their strengths. We knew it would be a tough match. The playing conditions were difficult.
