Léo Dubois : "We must keep up our momentum"
The match against Marseille
It's an important game, we know it's a strong opponent. It's up to us to go attack them; they are a direct competitor. The dynamic is positive. Keep in mind that we have experienced complicated times and rely on what we've learned from them to avoid making the same mistakes. It is up to us to become aware of what is at stake. I think there will be a huge passion about the match. This necessarily changes a lot of things. We have the same desire to win as every game. We want the 3 points. We have goals and we want to reach them. To do that, you have to win.
Preparation for the match
Each player has his own method of concentration. Big matches are moments we engage in regularly. In the week we work collectively, we discuss things and put things into place tactically as a collective. We prepare for the match like everyone else. We know what to expect, and where we are going. It's up to us to prepare things as they should be and to keep a good state of mind.
A winning run
I have the feeling that we are progressing. We are keen to record three straight victories in the league. It is by making a series like this that we can stick to our goals. We must continue our momentum and keep this state of mind -- we must climb the table.
The absences of Memphis and Tousart
They are important players. It is of course disappointing but we have a quality squad. I have confidence in the team and I know we can play a great match without them.
The role of captain
I had been captain several times at the beginning of the season. These are important moments. You are relied upon in this role, but it's not something that galvanizes me more than usual. I have already been captain in my career. My desire is to have a strong team with leaders who bring us towards our goals. The coach will make his choice. The key is to put the collective before everything. There are leaders in the rest of the squad who are complementary.
We are aware that we need to string together victories. It will happen if we work. We are used to things happening quickly. We are a young squad, we must stay the course and stay serene. It is necessary to win Sunday to start the break with a clear mind.
The mood around the squad
We understood what was necessary to advance as a team. Our state of mind is moving in the right direction. We have a collective consciousness, winning and losing together.
