OL-Lille: The post-match reactions
“The outcome is terrible. The players were devastated in the locker room. We have to move on quickly because we have an equally important match next week against Monaco. We cannot say to ourselves that the podium is no longer unattainable. We are playing a direct competitor and we can come back to within a point. We will watch the match on video. It’s a bit of a recurring theme, it’s hard to string together two very high-level halves. We made every effort in going ahead 2-0 against the league leader but we must be able to defend much better than we did in the second half ... The players were working hard physically. We made changes as a result of their fatigue. LOSC raised their level and we suffered physically as a result."
“It's the feeling of frustration that dominates. We played very well in the first half. We have no excuses today. We let Lille regain confidence after the interval. Our level of play was less than it had been, and Lille's goal at the end of the first half was a crucial moment. It was difficult for us."
