Rudi Garcia (Lyon coach, after the draw against Nîmes) : “It’s obviously a poor performance. We lacked realism. It’s been three matches where we have the opportunities to score from the start like today (Friday). You have to transform them against teams that play with a low block. It’s our fault, we should have found the solutions and converted our possibilities. These are the same evils as the two previous matches. We should have won because we are OL and we welcome. The opportunities, we had them.
I found that this third game in seven days took a toll on some people. I had brought a little fresh blood with young people who behaved rather well but they can not bring everything compared to more experienced players. Our favorable situations are often shots from outside the area. We should go around the block and be precise about the centers. We should be able to play in the box with pitched players and get penalties. “
“We need to work more because we cannot lose points like that”
Bruno Guimaraes, (Lyon midfielder) : “It was a complicated game. We missed chances, some easy ones. We need to work more because we cannot lose points like that. When you start to miss opportunities, you lack confidence, it becomes difficult. Physically, we went a long time without playing because of the Covid and now we are playing a series of matches. Five points is not good. If we want to win the Championship, we need to win, especially at home. It will be necessary to regain the lost points. “
