Check out who said what in the OLtv Bus after the Week 18, 2-1 win over Evian-TG...
I knew I was going to have plenty of space to exploit down the flank tonight and I made the most of Alexandre Lacazette's positioning to overlap. Tonight we won the three points and that's the main thing. Montpellier drew and Paris take on another direct rival. We're moving forward, slowly but surely. Now we need to prepare for the final game of the year against Valenciennes. It was a great game tonight because Evian TG love to attack. We know that the Stade Gerland isn't in the best condition. It's not easy to play football on the deck. the lights blacking out was a surprise but we stayed focused and professional.
Evian were very togh to play against but the main thing was to win and maintain our current run of results. I'm more and more confident on the wing. I'm enjoying playing there.
It was a really dofficult match of football. We knew that Evian-TG were very comfortable away from home. It wasn't easy finding space and creating chances but we were strong enough to find solutions. We stayed focused and did what we had to do in the second half to win the game.
In the first half, we were just missing a little something, but it all came together in the second half. You have to stay positive right to the final whistle. I saw Jimmy's shot and when it spilled, I took advantage. I concentrate on my positioning, I try and have a good vision of the play and the positioning of the other players. I talk a lot. I try and confort and encourage my teammates. I like to work hard for the team. It's always a pleasure to score goals. This week, there's been a lot of talk about me and my injuries and my perceived 'fragility'. But tonight I got the winner. My joy is that I earned three points for an Olympique Lyonnais win. That's more important to me and little injuries. The three points were absolutely crucial tonight. If we pick up all three points in our final game against Valenciennes, we'll finish the year in the best possible way.
