Lyon boss Remi Garde: 'We almost caused an upset'

Lyon manager Remi Garde insists that his players gave a good account of themselves during their defeat to Juventus.

Lyon manager Remi Garde has declared that he is proud of his team despite watching them crash out of the Europa League at the hands of Juventus.

The Ligue 1 outfit bowed out of the competition at the quarter-final stage following a 3-1 aggregate defeat to the Italians, but gave their opponents a scare in the second leg.

"I must say I am proud of my players," he told reporters. "At half time we thought that we were getting close to a huge achievement because we only needed to score one more goal and we knew we would have chances after the break.

"It is always disappointing when you go out of a competition, but we have to recognise Juve's superiority - even if over the two legs we did not see that much difference between the teams."

The draw for the semi-finals of the Europa League takes place on Friday.
