Listen to what the Lyon players had to say to OLTV after Wednesday's Ligue 1 loss to Lille:

Rafael: "We will bounce back, even if we're very disappointed with the result tonight. Perhaps we were a bit tired tonight. We have some big games coming up and we love these types of challenges. It's important to rotate the playing squad as we head into the Christmas. I'm fine with fighting for my place in the side with Kenny Tete. It pushes me to give my best each and every game."

Anthony Lopes: "It's very disappointing. We took too long to get into the game. We equalised, but then a lapse in concentration saw us concede a second goal, that could've been avoided. Tonight was a bad game for us. We didn't have any luck in the final minutes. Now we need to claim the three points away to Caen to make sure we're in the top three come Christmas."

Lucas Tousart: "We didn't do enough in the first half and lost nearly every challenge. After the break, we really gacve it everything, and I still ask myself how we didn't manage to score. We just lacked that little spark. We have two crucial matches left before the winter break and we need to play well to pick up the points we lost at home."


Houssem Aouar: "We were up against a very deep defence and we weren't able to adapt our game plan. We wanted to impose our football. We need to do a lot better in our next game."
