National Pie Zapping Top 10: the best scorers in the history of the France national team

Currently eighth in the championship, Olympique Lyonnais must achieve an exemplary end to the season in order to claim Europe. The Rhône club is 5 points behind 5th Nice, a victory this Sunday at the Vélodrome would allow Bosz’s men to revive. Precisely, two days before the meeting, the Dutchman was present at a press conference and spoke extensively.

At the Olympic:

“There are four games left for Europe, it’s always possible. We won last week. Marseille is more than Montpellier but they played yesterday. It can be an advantage for us. We have Feyenoord played well, showing OM’s weaknesses. You need the players to make That. Even if the score is only 3-2; We saw OM’s strength because they’ve had two chances early in the game. With Payet between the lines and the two of them going fast up front, he’s still dangerous.”

About Sampaoli:

“I like Sampaoli a lot. I remember when I was the Chile coach, his team was very aggressive, pressing up front. What energy! And what pressure there. I had one of his players for three years, who told me a lot about Sampaoli. He has a lot of different tactics, it’s very interesting. Like the goalkeeper, his right-back who becomes a defensive midfielder. There are many examples. I can’t talk to him, because I don’t speak Spanish and he doesn’t speak French or English. But he’s a good coach, everything it has to be said.”

About Lopez:

“When your goalkeeper is your best player, he is not good, it must be said. Logically, he should have one or two important saves per game. Anthony Lopes has saved much more than that this season. That means that our team is not strong enough, but Lopes is also having a great season. He was stable for much of the season, even if he did make a mistake or two. It’s the quality of him, with Vercoutre preparing him well. Congratulations on that.”

About the Lyon group:

“No idea, I have a meeting with the medical staff in 45 minutes. What did Anthony Lopes say earlier (laughs)? Maxence trained with us but he has a little problem with his knee, now I don’t know how he is evaluated. “

To sum up

Currently eighth in the championship, Olympique Lyonnais must achieve an exemplary end to the season in order to claim Europe. The Rhône club is 5 points behind 5th Nice, a victory this Sunday at the Vélodrome would allow Bosz’s men to revive.
