Jardim reflects on important win over Lyon
AS Monaco head coach Leonardo Jardim was appreciative of his side’s 2-0 win over Olympique Lyon in the Ligue 1 clash that lifted his side five points clear in the relegation zone.
On loan, reborn winger Gelson Martins and a second goal on the night through Ronny Lopes handed the Principality side a second win in a row and fourth unbeaten in Ligue 1 that lifts them off the relegation dog fight with some breathing space.
“It was very important to win because we need a maximum of points in our situation Against a high-quality team that has sometimes demonstrated this season against Manchester City or the Paris Saint-Germain we had a big attitude but also a big quality of the game. Jardin told the media.
We knew that Lyon had a lot of technical qualities If you play very low it’s dangerous We played by making a big pressure with a middle block.
In the second half we controlled the match We have some situations like Lyon too But in the end the two goals are justified in my opinion
