Jean-Charles De Bono dissects the game of the Olympiens against Grandville in the Coupe de France's quarter finals.

"The Olympiens created a lot of opportunities but they lack efficiency. Granville was courageous, it showed that it could compete with an L1 team. In the Europa League, we saw OM play at a high level, and here, with a limited game, we just squeezed by. OM couldn't find its feet
"The Olympians were playing with their head down and only made individual moves. We were not really playing with the ball, we didn't make our opponents run enough. There were technical mistakes on our side.
"Mendy was the best Olympien. He created solutions for us, both offensively and defensively. He showed that he wanted it.
"Barrada caught many balls. He took them out well. He had an unusual role for him. He has to show more fight if he still has to play in this position. Rekik and Rolando don't play together enough and we saw that they sometimes have some small adjustments to make, particularly in terms of their communication.
"Sochaux is playing for his survival in L2. Will Sochaux give his all to keep it? That's the question we should ask ourselves."
