Rudi Garcia : « D'abord se concentrer sur le jeu plutôt que l'enjeu »
Ahead of the reception of RB Leipzig o the last matchday of the group stage of the Champions League, Rudi Garcia spoke to a press conference. Find his remarks in full on OLPLAY.

Medical update

"Marçal has not played for a while. He had a little muscle problem. He trained normally. We will see tomorrow. There are two other questions around Rafael and Maxwel Cornet. We will have solutions in the attacking positions. At the back, we will have to be inventive if there are two absences. I hope at least one will be ready. "


The challenge of the match

"You have to focus on the game to make the issue secondary. We must show desire, and generosity. We will have to run with the ball against a team that likes pressing. The first thing is to show that we want to qualify by deeds and not words. We know the importance of this match. We only want to consider qualification. The fans will be important to us because it will be a crazy atmosphere. "





"It's the best team on the road, the best attack in the German league and the top side in our group. Werner is a formidable player. We know his qualities, he is fast and he is effective. There are other very good players in the side. You have to build on your strengths and play on their weaknesses. "


A work in progress?

"Yes, especially in terms of the results. We are missing some points to be where we would like to be. You can't not be brilliant and win every three days. We do not complain about anything, we do not look for an excuse. We just want to catch up after our poor performance at Zenit. "



"He is a very important player for us, but OL does not depend only on Memphis to win the match. It also depends on the other ten players. "


Making room for young players

"This is the future of OL, players like Rayan Cherki, Melvin Bard, Maxence Caqueret ... We must give them time to progress. But what they have done with us already is very very good. "
