"Things are looking better for Amandine Henry. We will take stock today. We are very optimistic ... Psychologically it's good to have won the title at Dijon before Chelsea... We are ready. We will look at things that weren't done well in the first leg. We have to change our attitude a bit, especially defensively. But these are very easily fixable things for us. There is nothing alarming, on the contrary. If we improve on that, chances are we will qualify. The girls know what is expected of them. It's about recovery, watching, very short sessions... So we already know what to do. There won't be major tactical changes for the second leg. We remain confident but it will take a lot to qualify, as in the first leg. There can be no relaxation in a European semifinal match."

"There were some ingredients missing during the first half against Dijon. We had better intentions after the break. We celebrated a little in the locker room after the match. We wanted to win the title at Dijon to be fully prepared for Chelsea. This match allowed us to free ourselves psychologically ... We will go to London with the same intentions as in Wolfsburg. Chelsea is an eye-catching team."
