After the loss of OL against Montpellier (1-2), Saturday in Ligue 1, Rudi Garcia felt that his team had lacked realism and that it should have made sure to leave at least with a draw.
“In this kind of match, you have to be more realistic”. This is the overall opinion of Rudi Garcia, Saturday night after the 2-1 setback conceded by Olympique Lyonnais against Montpellier HSC, as part of the 25th day of Ligue 1.
“We started the game very well, we can put two goals in the first thirty seconds. We then had an air gap, certainly due to the fact that Montpellier put more impact and confiscated the ball”, developed Rudi Garcia. He then deplored an “error” on the second Montpellier goal, without naming Anthony Lopes, guilty of a hazardous exit. “It was an evening without. Without success,” he then regretted.
“Did Montpellier have more determination than us? Not in the numbers, but in the realism and the fact of being rather cynical on the finish and in the areas of truth, added the Lyon coach. was not efficient and effective “.
“You shouldn’t lose any points”
Descended to third place, now under the threat of AS Monaco who can return to one point, OL also sees PSG take two points ahead in this weekend. “It’s a halt,” notes Rudi Garcia, who remained on four consecutive victories in the league.
“In an endurance race as we live it, you shouldn’t lose points, he also said. Even if you obviously don’t deserve to lose, even a draw would have been lost points. (…) We will have to go and win in Brest to start moving forward. We just have to blame ourselves and no one else. “
