Scorer of a double in the first match in his first match with Lyon, the Brazilian Fred talks about his current good form…

You were one of the stars of the first match between these two sides, your first in a Lyon top. What do you remember of that game?
It was a special match for me. It was a great game between two worthy rivals and saw me make a great debut at the Stade Gerland. My two goals secured a vital win for the team. On Sunday, at the Stade Louis II, I hope to repeat that success again.

You’ve scored three goals in three games. What do you put it down to? The particularly ‘Brazilian’ weather we’re enjoying?
All this sunshine has me thinking about Brazil, it’s true. The temperature means it’s great for training and playing football, but the real reason for my success is the confidence my teammates have in me. Everyone encourages me and it shows in my performances on the pitch.

So we can expect Fred to be on the score sheet again this weekend…
Of course I hope to score against Monaco but more important than that is the performance of the squad. It’s imperative that we finish the season well and break more records.
