Lyon's coach, Rudi Garcia, spoke after his team's victory over Juventus.
I am very happy with the victory and the match. We had two sides to our play. In the first period we defended very well, we conceded nothing and we managed possession by creating chances. We rose to the level of the occasion. In the second period we had more difficulties because Juventus pressed and pushed to attack. But I liked the fact that we hung on and defended as well as we did. It was essential not to concede a goal and we will have to try to score at Juventus Stadium in the return to qualify. Now we must remain humble, we are at half-time of this tie. Juventus are not beaten every day. We rose to the occasion by competing and dominating Juventus. We gave a lot of effort and we ran a lot. We must now rest for Sunday.
