Lyon Ready to Take on Strasbourg in Coupe de France Quarter-Finals

This Tuesday evening in the quarter-finals of the Coupe de France, OL host RC Strasbourg. A meeting which could be a trap for the Gones even if the Grand Est team fears the new Lyon armada.

If OL have almost no chance of finishing in Europe at the end of the season via the championship, there is still hope through the Coupe de France. This Tuesday evening at Groupama Stadium, Pierre Sage’s men host RC Strasbourg. A meeting which could be a trap against the Alsatians who are in bad shape in Ligue 1 but who will give their all in the Cup. Patrick Vieira is nevertheless wary of OL, which has considerably strengthened this winter on the transfer market. For the 98 world champion, the Rhone residents have even found their soul and are no longer the same team as at the start of the season.

An OL that scares again

At a press conference, Vieira said all the good things he thought of this new OL version of Pierre Sage: “It’s a team that has rediscovered certain values, certain qualities. It’s a team that plays much better. Afterwards, it is a team which worked a lot during the winter transfer window, which has strengthened itself very well. From the moment you strengthen yourself, you become more competitive and OL have found certain values”. Note that despite his team’s situation in Ligue 1, Vieira does not intend to play in the Coupe de France and wants to try everything to go as far as possible: “The goal is to qualify to go to the semi-final, it’s as simple as that. It can allow you to get started again, to rediscover certain values, but also certain qualities. It’s a priority, we have the opportunity to go to the semi-final, so we are going to play this match hard, there is no priority in the championship”. Things are therefore clear and Strasbourg will not become a victim of this new Lyon which scares its opponents.
