« On a le droit de rêver et on a aussi le droit de le faire »
The players and manager from Lyon's qualification against Juventus in the quarterfinals of the Champions League spoke to OLTV.

Rudi Garcia

“We knew it would be difficult. We scored, that's what we wanted to do. Nothing was finished but it was a goal that matters a lot. I regret seeing Juve come back with a non-existent penalty. It put them back into the match. We didn't panic. The substitutes were very good. They held the ball. They managed to finish the job. It’s a victory won as a group. We must not set limits on ourselves. We will fine-tune before the trip to Lisbon. We will have an outsider status but we will do everything to qualify for the semifinal. "


Anthony Lopes

“It’s a huge moment of joy. It was very hard. We had the ambition to score here. We did it quickly. We did it even though we were a bit scared. The team has been amazing collectively and individually. It’s a victory won by the entire team. Now we have to move on to the next round. We have the ambition to go far in this competition. We know that we have to win to play European football. We have the right to fight for it, they cannot take that away from us. We have the right to dream and we also have the right to be proud. It took a lot of strength of character, a lot of mental strength to stand strong. We held on. "


Léo Dubois

“We're super happy. We can be proud of ourselves. We knew it wouldn't be easy against the Italian champion. We were all together, we must remember that. Everyone believed even after Ronaldo's second goal. It was up to us to stay focused and we did. We tapped into our mental resources. We are already thinking of Lisbon. We will try to prepare for it as well as we can. We are not in the quarterfinals by chance. It’s a shame not to celebrate with the supporters, we are thinking of them. "
