2017-2018 Season – Ligue 1 Conforama – Matchday 30 – OM 2-3 Lyon: Rudi Garcia shared his thoughts following the match vs. Lyon (2-3).
Rudi Garcia : «We didn't deserve to lose»

"There are things that worked well and others not so well. I think there is shared responsibility for this defeat. We did not deserve to lose, but it took us too long to cause problems for their defense and their goalkeeper. We opened the scoring on a set kick, but then we were not very good at defending. That's our responsibility. Instead of Mitroglou’s goal and our chance to lead 3-2, we ended up with an imaginary offside, a goal for Kostas and a free kick that made us lose the match. That all matters a lot."

"We were tired. Some players were below average. It’s true, we were a bit dull on every level. But I think it's mostly the equalizer that has bothered us. I felt we were the poor side on that and we did not defend well. Not only the defense, but also the team as a whole, where we left too much space between our lines and lost some important duels. Nevertheless, the final score should have been a draw. This is not the case and we are still third. The break ahead of us will be welcome."
