Reynald Pedros : « Gagner ce premier match à domicile »
Lyon's manager and striker Eugénie Le Sommer faced the media a day before hosting Wolfsburg in the opening leg of their Women's Champions League quarterfinal tie.

"These are always special matches to play at Groupama Stadium. Our team is not used to playing games here. Groupama Stadium is a beautiful stadium. We rely heavily on our supporters to cheer us on us. Wolfsburg is a formidable opponent. They have almost the same strength as last season. We have to beat a very formidable opponent. Our squad is full for tomorrow, we have prepared well. We were able to work the game tactically. We have to win this first game at home. We are in line with our objectives for this season. We're focused on tomorrow night. We will never underestimate our opponent. There is a risk of missing out if we are not 200%.

Eugénie Le Sommer 

"We like to play at Groupama Stadium. You can feel the Champions League atmosphere in the stadium. It's important to be able to train on this pitch, as was the case yesterday, because we don't play here often. We will have the chance to play on a beautiful field tomorrow night. This is unfortunately not the case every weekend in the league. Wolfsburg and Olympique Lyonnais are, for me, the two best teams in Europe. This is a team that we've faced regularly in recent years. We know our opponent well. Statistics mean nothing to me, so I will have to play both matches thoroughly. Even if we won our last matches against them. They will certainly want to get revenge."
