Coach Rudi Garica aims to score more goals in the second leg, after winning Juventus 1-0 in the first leg of the round of 1/8 Champions League.
Lyon won 1-0 yesterday, thanks to Lucas Tousart’s only goal in the 31st minute. Unlike many games earlier in the season, Juventus lacked mobility. The visitors did not even do anything but Dybala put the ball against Lyon in offside.
Coach Lyon also did not regret because the home team could not score more goals in the first leg. “There is no regrets. The important thing is that we played well in the first half, scored and didn’t concede a goal at home,” he said.
With a small advantage of winning 1-0 in the first leg, Lyon will go to the quarterfinals if there is a goal and only lose a difference in the return leg on March 17. Meanwhile, Juventus need to win two or more goals to eliminate the risk of being eliminated early.
Juninho: ‘Nobody expected Lyon to defeat Juventus’
Lyon Sports Director Juninho Pernambucano praised the home team after the victory against Juventus in the first leg of the round of 1/8 Champions League on February 26.
Lyon defeated Juventus thanks to Lucas Tousart’s only goal in the 31st minute, at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais. In the second half, the visitors tried to push the line up and play more actively, but did not make a difference in the attack. This match, Juventus launched a total of 14 shots but failed to once hit the goal.
Lyon’s performance against Juventus is not commensurate with what this team shows in Ligue 1. They are currently seventh with 37 points after 26 matches, 28 points behind PSG and seven points against the Champions League team in the season.
