Reactions from the OL women's team during and after the match against Russian side FK Zorkiy...
"The girls got the job done. Sonia Bompastor's extraordinary goal was notable... it must have sent a message to the national team coach. We saw the squad in action tonight, the side can be rotated and stil perform. Patrice Lair's future at OL? I hope he'll continue the adventure here. We'll start discussions in eight days. For us, there is no doubt that he will continue. OL without Patrice would be a bleak state of affairs; we would lose out in terms of our winning touch."

"We were up against a quality side who played tight at the back. We didn't use our pace enough to score goals. In the end, I wasn't too satisfied with the score. We were also thinking about Sunday's match. Even though we're used to scoring a lot of goals, the most important thing is not to concede them. Now we'll see who our next opponents are."
Pamela Conti (Zorkiy)
"This OL side are really good. I hope they go on to win the Champions League. They're the best team in Europe."
"It was very important to us to do weel at Gerland. We knew that this Russian side had a lot of quality. We weren't effective enough. The most important match this week is our clash with Montpellier on Sunday. Really, we would have liked to score more goals tonight; we had won 9-0 in the first leg. It's tough to play to the full extent of your capacities every time. And our opponentsw played a good match."
