Alexandre Lacazette and Malo Gusto will be absent, said Passi. We must prepare as seriously as possible, trying not to deviate from the objectives.

Passi also specified that Lacazette should be replaced by Amin Sarr. “We must not have any slack. We are a confident team. Amin Sarr has more depth compared to Lacazette, who has more experience. He is technically good. We know the importance of Alex in this group…”, added Laurent Blanc’s assistant during this press briefing.

To chain is to prepare as we prepared for the other matches, as seriously as possible while trying not to deviate from our objective. The only mistrust one can have is slackness. Our staff will work a lot on it because afterwards we have a team that is doing well at the moment. We leave with weapons for this match. We will have to work on the motivation of the players. It’s a team with assets, like (M’Baye) Niang. It’s a team that will fight to stay in Ligue 1, it’s going to be a difficult match”. The message got through.
