Laurent Blanc reacted to the qualification of OL against Chambéry (3-0), this Saturday, in the Coupe de France. The Lyonnais coach is delighted that Alexandre Lacazette has shown himself to be effective. He regrets that Rayan Cherki does not follow suit.
In a press conference, Laurent Blanc delivered his analysis of the match won by his team against Chambéry. The Rhone coach appreciated the first period, minus the second: “The first period can give some satisfaction, but we were less good after half-time, especially in the use of the ball. But in the Cup, the main thing is to qualify. We don’t win a lot of games, but when you win one 3-0, you have to analyze it, as always, but there are positives.”he told reporters.
“We would like this to happen more often”
Laurent Blanc was delighted that Alexandre Lacazette had regained his efficiency: “Lacazette is happy when we put balls in the box. He is a surface player who has always scored. Our goals were delivered well, but I wish we had more situations like these. When it happens on match day, you have to appreciate it even if you would like it to happen more often.he continued.
The technician still sees points for improvement: “It’s not as easy and good as that to rely on one and the same player to score. Rayan Cherki in particular needs to be more effective because he can also score a lot. This victory will be used to obtain results, already. From Tuesday, we will prepare for the return to the league. We have real offensive capabilities, but we also have real defensive weaknesses. In the middle we weren’t as good as that, he just missed it. »
OL will try to follow up against Brest on Wednesday, on behalf of the 20e day of Ligue 1. The Lyonnais will then face Lens, Lorient and Nantes.
