Lyon won't be affected by PSG exit, says Lacazette

The attacker believes his side are fully capable of knocking Juventus out in their Europa League quarter-final and says they don't feel pressure as Ligue 1's sole representatives

Olympique Lyonnais attacker Alexandre Lacazette claims his side will not be affected after watching Paris Saint-Germain crash out of Europe on Wednesday.

The Ligue 1 champions surrendered a 3-1 first-leg lead to lose out on away goals to Chelsea following a 2-0 loss at Stamford Bridge, meaning Lyon remain Ligue 1's sole representatives in continental competition.

Lacazette insists his side feel no extra pressure as France's sole surviving outfit and says there is plenty of hope within the squad that they can overturn their first-leg deficit to Juventus, having lost 1-0 at home.

"The fact that PSG have gone out and we're the only French team left in Europe does not change our approach," he told a press conference.

"The narrow scoreline [from the first leg] means there's hope as far as we're concerned. We managed to give Juve some difficulties in the first leg.

"Juve have plenty of quality in defence but I believe we can do it tomorrow night. Ligue 1 and the Europa League are very different, but our last victory over Valenciennes on Sunday gives us added belief."
