OL - SL Benfica : The post-match reactions
"The first period was very satisfactory. Both at the collective level and in the intention. We scored the first goal on a set piece that we had worked in training. The second period was more difficult and I liked the solidarity of the team. At 2-1, we were able to score rather than sit back. For a coach, it's very pleasant. Memphis (Depay) felt something in his thigh. He wanted to continue but we did not want to aggravate the situation. "
"It was important to win and stay at the same level as our last matches. We had said before the match that we had to score quickly and we did it. There have been positive things and you have to rely on them. The hardest part remains to be done. We have our destiny in our hands. It's not over, you have to go after things. It's nice to get back to winning here in the Champions League. We needed it and we deserved it. "
"We are very happy with the match. We were eager to offer this victory to our supporters. This is a good omen for the future. We will go get the qualification. The second period proves that we still have things to work on. This is the beginning with the coach but he has already brought us a lot. We will fully savor this victory and we will go back to work to prepare for the Olympico. "

Dans l’ensemble on a fait un match cohérent avec quelques trous d’air en seconde mi-temps. » pic.twitter.com/id0PdBTOzA— Olympique Lyonnais (@OL) November 5, 2019
"We played a complete match in front of our fans It's the best thing to gain confidence for this weekend. The coach repeats that we must play both halves, I think it was successful tonight. Bertrand (Traoré) scored a goal that put us ahead safely. We will have to win in Marseille to continue our run. We will rest well to be fit. "
"It's a win that's good for us. We are on a good run of form and we must continue like this. It feels good to win in front of our fans. They are honored by our playing like that on the field. "
"The first period was very good. When you have an Aouar and a Memphis on that level, it's very positive. Andersen had a very good game too. It was a consistent match. "
