All the post match reactions.

Bafé Gomis
This is a victory that does us a lot of good especially since it's not easy to win here. We thought we had done the hard part by opening the scoring early on in the game. Unfortunately we conceded from a set piece. We had a great Licha who scored that goal in the last minute.

Claude Puel
We put in a lot of efforts in the first half to avoid their long game. We closed them down a great deal. We slackened off a little in the second half and stayed back. I feel that we put in a good game in very difficult conditions. I congratulate the players for their character. We put in all the necessary ingredients tonight. It's a beautiful victory. The players are receptive and that interests me.

Rémy Vercoutre
They stuck at it. Here, the mentality of the club is to not let anything go. From the moment we went ahead, the motto was to stay calm because we knew that they might try spoiling tactics. We did it and managed to take this victory. We can count ourselves lucky because we had a week to prepare for this complicated game. The group has responded well.

Max Gonalons
Not everyone can come here and win. We were up against a very good side. We controlled the first half well. Their equalizer with only ten minutes remaining hurt us. We tried to stay focused. This goal in the 94th minute was a relief. It's a great win tonight. It is very important and it's good for the group.

We won in the last minute. That's football. The match was very difficult, very tough. Montpellier played well with the ball. We lowered the pace in the second half and it played deeper. We played the ball out from the back less well. There are four games to go until the winter break and we will have to be very concentrated until the end.
