thumbnail Hello,

The Ligue 1 side were beaten 1-0 at home by the Biaconeri in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final but their coach maintains "anything can happen" in Turin


Olympique Lyonnais boss Remi Garde has challenged his players to leave Turin with "no regrets" on Thursday as they look to overturn a Europa League quarter-final deficit to Juventus.

Leonardo Bonucci's late goal handed the Italian champions a first-leg advantage and they are strong favourites to progress to the last four in front of their own fans.

Garde admits his side are facing a mountain to climb but insists his players can turn the tie around if they maintain their concentration.

"Juve are a solid team," he told a press conference. "We know how strong they are but over the 90 minutes of a match anything can happen.

"Getting through to the next round will be a huge challenge but we are here to turn the situation around.

"We will play with the same spirit as we showed in the first leg. We need great concentration, determination and solidarity. We will also need a little luck due to the quality of the team we are facing.

"European experience doesn't always make the difference. It's concentration that does. I'm asking the lads to give everything and to have no regrets at the end of the match."
