Jérôme Arpinon (coach of Nîmes, after the draw in Lyon) : “It’s a very good point. It was important to defend well against a great team from Lyon with good technical skills. The smallest ball in the back is exploited to perfection. It’s a team that centers a lot and we had worked well on this aspect. It’s not the best game for the NO offensively, but a point is a point.
“The players showed good values”
We are not doing the same Championship. We had a lot of absentees but those who played know each other. It’s a great reward for us, the players have shown great values. The team believes in everything. When you can’t win, you have to know not to lose and we took a point. It’s a benchmark game defensively. We were perhaps less beautiful than against Rennes (2-4) against whom we scored twice and lost. This time we didn’t score but we got the draw. “
