Rudi Garcia : « Avec humilité mais avec beaucoup d’ambition »
The Lyon coach, Rudi Garcia, spoke at a press conference to discuss the round of 16 second leg against Juventus.

The Coupe de la Ligue final

“It was a big disappointment. We came very close to the trophy. We quickly digested the loss, and the players immediately turned to the Champions League and the possibility of qualifying for the quarterfinals. "


The difference in match fitness between the teams

“There are pros and cons. Juventus are on track having played at the end of Serie A but have exposed themselves to injuries. They were able to prepare as well as possible and were able to win the league two matchdays before the end of the season. They were able to rotate the squad. The disadvantage for us is in a lack of match rhythm. But we showed that we were physically ready in the game against Paris. "


Bruno Guimaraes

“He hasn't played a lot of matches with us. He is a player in the mould of how I like them. He runs, he defends well. He's a team player at heart. He is very valuable in the collective expression of our style of play. "


The 2019-20 season

“The season only lasted 28 days unlike in other countries. It's not enough for OL. With 30 points to be won, we would have ended up in the European places. Now we have to think about the Champions League. The anthem will be played in the stadium and that will be enough for our motivation. "


The absence of Paulo Dybala

“There are a lot of great players on this team. Even if he's not there, others will be there to lead the Juve attack. We come with a lot of humility but also plenty of ambition. "
