Aouar: 'Lyon not Juventus victims'

Houssem Aouar assures Olympique Lyonnais go to the Juventus Stadium “not to be victims, but with confidence” after a 1-0 first leg win.

His assist set up Lucas Tousart for the only goal of the game in France, setting up a fascinating Champions League Round of 16 decider on March 17.

“It was a real team performance,” Aouar told RMC Sport.

“We knew that we were not the favourites going in, but we put in a really strong performance and there is still the second leg to go. We can’t get ahead of ourselves.

“There are all the ingredients in place to do well, but it’s only half-time in the tie and nothing has been achieved yet.

“The important thing is that we go to Turin with strong ambitions, not to be victims, but with confidence.”
