Lyon will have a tough test today in return leg agaisnt Juventus in the Europa League quarterfinal. The French coach asked his players to give everything on the field, being aware that a qualification in semi-finals is a pretty difficult task at the moment.
Lyon appears in comeback of form on this final season, but in the Europa League has met Juventus, team favorite to win the trophy this year. In the first match in France, the Turin side won 1-0, and now Lyon have to turn this result, which seems a very difficult mission.
Before the first match Remi Garde said the elimination of Juventus is like climbing a mountain difficult to exploit, and it looks like it will be eventually, but urged his players to keep their confidence and dedication to the end.
Juve are a solid team. We know how strong they are but over the 90 minutes of a match anything can happen,” Garde told a press conference
“Getting through to the next round will be a huge challenge but we are here to turn the situation around.
“We will play with the same spirit as we showed in the first leg. We need great concentration, determination and solidarity. We will also need a little luck due to the quality of the team we are facing.
“European experience doesn’t always make the difference. It’s concentration that does. I’m asking the lads to give everything and to have no regrets at the end of the match.”
