OL coach Hubert Fournier and striker Alexandre Lacazette spoke at the traditional pre-match press conference ahead of Tuesday's clash away to Zenit in the Champions League.

Alexandre Lacazette

An important match

"It's not double or nothing. Even if we lose tomorrow, we still have a chance of finishing second in the group. But for sure, it's a very important, match.

Le Zenit

Mathieu Valbuena has spoken to us about Russia and Zenit, but I won't tell you anymore.  We need to play more compact, that's what the coach wants. We know that Zenit are very strong on the counter. We have to be careful of that. They have some very good players in Witsel and Dani who have excellent vision, and then the powerful Hulk up front.

Match importance

"It's a match to stay on track in the competition. Zenit have the chance to really break away at the top of the standings. We will need to play a full 90 minutes at our best. That's the very least, if we want to get something from this game. It's something we haven't done often so far this season and we have spoken about it.
