2017-2018 Season - Ligue 1 - Matchday 34 - OM-Lille (5-1): Rudi Garcia's reaction to the 5-1 win over LOSC.

Rudi Garcia : «things are opening up»

"It's always most important to take the three points. It is true that we have also reduced the goal difference with our direct competitors. For the moment, we came back to within a point of second place (before Guingamp-Monaco). We are still tied for third, we remain stuck in with Lyon. Everything remains open for this end of the season. We will now recover and think again of the European Cup on Thursday. We play at home, it's going to be an important game because it's the first leg. It will take a result to qualify to return, but we are really satisfied. Today, there were more than 55,000 spectators and we saw a beautiful Olympique de Marseille performance.”

"The mood is good, like when Dimitri Payet leaves the penalty to Florian (Thauvin). This is the class and it is also a sign that shows that this team wants to achieve great results together. I have great players, but they know that without the help of their teammates it's not as good collectively. When we are all together, it gives us great victories."

"Hiroki (Sakai, out on injury), this is the dark spot of the evening. On the other hand, the some ligaments could be affected. It will be difficult to get him back quickly. We are not going to make a prognosis now. We hope it's not too bad, but it's a blow tonight."

"Now we will focus on Salzburg. Tomorrow, the players will rest, they will refuel. We will study the opponent thoroughly. We have already worked well on them with Fred (Bompard) and Thomas (Benedet). We already know a lot about this team because we played them twice. The preparation for the semi-final has already begun."
