OL v ASSE (2-0): post-match reactions
"We had our hearts set on winning this derby, we gave everything we had. We wanted to win a second consecutive game here at home but we also wanted to take three points. The first half was very successful. We controlled it well. We have to keep going because everything isn't perfect. With Lucas Tousart and Bruno Guimarães we felt very good and that's good for the team. But everyone made a difference with a very well-coordinated block. We still want to win against PSG to continue this series but also to play a second cup final, especially since we will play on Wednesday again in front of our own fans."
"There are only big games right now. A derby is not played, but won, and that's what we did. We had a great first half. We scored a lot of goals, some of which were denied by VAR. Winning the derby by scoring two goals and not conceding is the main thing. A derby is always special. The fans were magnificent and we're very happy. Every game is important. We have to think about PSG before Lille first. We need to recover well. We have to do everything we can to qualify and reach a second cup final."
"The game was very interesting, especially in the first half. We didn't leave anything behind and then we did everything we could to make sure we had a good second half. The suspense right up to the end was also good. The whole team has been doing a lot of defensive work lately. We haven't conceded a goal in three games. I try to be there when I'm called upon, and I've been doing well tonight. We'll have to do it again on Wednesday. We don't have much time to recover. We're going to focus on our physical condition and get as much rest as we can to get our legs back ready for Wednesday."
"A derby isn't played, it's won. We did it the extra way I think. I'm very happy tonight. We've changed the intensity of our matches and we have to keep going because it's the start of a big run of games. When the fans are like that it's really a plus. We want to share these moments with them and we want to transcend ourselves."
