P. Bosz avant Paris FC - OL : « Pour gagner, le travail doit être fait ensemble »
On the eve of the Round of 64 of the Coupe de France against Paris FC, coach Peter Bosz gave a press conference to answer journalists' questions. The full press conference is available on OLPlay.

An update on the squad

“Karl Toko Ekambi and Xherdan Shaqiri trained yesterday. We will see after today's session whether they are available. Otherwise, the injured players remain the same."

 

The team's ambitions in this competition

“The Coupe de France is a great competition. It's a trophy that we want to win. We are going to face a great team, who have won their last five matches. We will need a squad that does things together, with a 100% concentration level. I'm going to field the best possible team because I want to win. Anthony Lopes will start in goal tomorrow. For us, this match is very important. We are thinking first of the Coupe de France, and we will focus on Metz after that."

 

Working as a team, as against Lille

“It's a potentially dangerous match, but only if we're not 100% focused. I saw for the first time against Lille a team that did things together. It was not easy. They have good players. We were good as a team. To be successful, we must work together. This match against Lille will serve us well for the future. I have very good players who have quality."

 

On tomorrow's opponent

“Paris FC are in good form. Their defense is compact. They have good players, and are quick in transition. Physically, they are also strong."

 

Playing with three at the back

“We knew that Lille would like to play out from the back against three central defenders. We changed our tactics compared to the match in Bordeaux so as to counter that."
