This Sunday evening, Olympique Lyonnais won on the lawn of AS Monaco (3-2) after an incredible match made up of many twists and turns, on behalf of the 35th day of Ligue 1. So As the Gones were down to 10 and had just conceded the equalizer from the penalty spot, Rayan Cherki scored the winning goal for the visitors before Anthony Lopes saved his side late in the game. Present at the microphone of Canal + At the end of the meeting, the OL goalkeeper also gave his feelings about this evening which marks a turning point at the end of the season in L1.
“It was a game with a lot of intensity. A little too much at times … But here we came with a lot of intention: to win to get back to a point in Monaco and hope until the end. Now we know that we depend on us but not totally, so we will try to negotiate our last games well. On my 1 against 1 against Geubbels at the end of the match? I play totally on my strengths: tonicity and explosiveness. I can find myself at the moment. I was keen to redeem myself on the penalty (caused by Lopes, Editor’s note). Behind, the team saved me a lot, I owe them a lot of things. Playing with the heart sometimes makes people mess around. What happened at the end of the match (rain of red cards, Editor’s note) is penalizing for us. We are losing three major players in our squad. But the victory is the most important now we are going to rest. We were very happy, we must also know how to lose with dignity. When they came to us in the Coupe de France, it was the same thing except that we simply did not respond. On the penalty? I try to play it intoxicated. I was just afraid to take away everything the team had done before. With great strength of character, we set out to seek victory. We had to be guys, to go 100%. I have been. I am Lyonnais, I played totally with the heart even if sometimes it can hurt ”.
