See the post-match reactions of Bouna Sarr, Boubacar Kamara, Morgan Sanson and Dimitri Payet following the match against Montpellier (0-0) on Matchday 32 of the Ligue 1 Conforama.

Bouna Sarr: “We were not efficient“

"From an mathematical point of view, there is a lot of disappointment but we remain fourth, tied with for third. We now, more than ever, have six finals, we will have win them. Now we have to focus on Thursday's game. Montpellier is over, they are organized, so it is not easy to enter their final third. They are strong in the backline and that was difficult. Compared to our style of play, it is difficult to create chances against this style of play. The non-call on the penalty was difficult but we were not efficient tonight because we got a lot of opportunities. It's hard to play against teams with a system we are not used to. They stay behind the ball, so it was not easy for us. We should have forced the decision but we did not succeed.

“Overtaken ... It's serious. We are tied, Lyon is in front of us on goals. We cannot panic. We still have six games, we will win them. I do not think we can win them all but it's the same for Lyon. It will be necessary to gain as much as possible, we must believe in ourselves and make sure to continue our journey in the Europa League. It is not over yet. First, we will see Thursday, we will make sure to qualify and we will see at the end of the six matches. We cannot panic even if there is disappointment. You have to keep working, work hard and I think we can do it. "

Boubacar Kamara: "6 games remaining, 6 finals"

"We played well, we started well in the first 15 minutes but after we stopped playing, running, there was no answer for us. It's our fault, not the referee's. We can only blame ourselves. We are not sad, we are tied for third, there are six matches, six finals. The coach told us to keep our heads up, that's what we're going to do. We will not rest on it, but it is an unfortunate result late in the season. A penalty, even if it is not yet converted, is a big 1-0 opportunity but we will not hide behind that. We will recover well, we have good training staff. It's our job to play matches. We will not complain."

Morgan Sanson: "We must improve on the finishing touch“

"It's a match that is similar to last Thursday. We dominated but could not capitalize on our opportunities. We had 2 or 3 great opportunities. We have to improve on the finishing touch, we have to convert our chances and we will make the matches easier. We are disappointed not to have put it in the back of the net again. It's a bit repetitive right now, but once we score, we'll take points. There is no fault in our mentality, we know what we have to do on Thursday against Leipzig because we want to go to the semi-finals. "

Dimitri Payet: "Still in the race"

"It's a draw and we would have hoped for better. We lost two points so we are disappointed. We are tied for third, fourth on goal difference. We are still in the race, that's what we have to remember. We let off a bit, physically we maybe were a bit down. Thursday's game cost us physically. There is not too much explanation needed but the start of the match was interesting. We had a cushion in advance that we no longer have. All matches will now count double, this will put us in the balance and every misstep will affect the standings. The fans are there, they know the importance of a quarter-final on Thursday. We still have all our chances. There's a semi-final at stake, I'm not worried, they'll be there."
