Remi Garde not giving up Champions League fight

Remi Garde refuses to admit defeat, despite Lyon having lost the home playoff leg 2-0 to Real Sociedad.

Lyon coach Remi Garde has insisted that his side will fight all the way in their Champions League playoff against Real Sociedad of La Liga.

Garde's side face a big task after losing the home leg 2-0, but the Frenchman said that his players will throw everything they have at the cause in Spain.

"You have to acknowledge the superiority of your opponents when it's the case," Ligue1.com quotes Garde as saying. "It's not nothing to finish fourth in the Spanish league. I have a lot of young players who are learning about this level of competition. We'll go for broke down there.

"Of course it's a very difficult mission, but not an impossible one. We need to try and score as soon as possible and cause our opponents more problems. You never know. It'll perhaps be a different game. I think I used all the means at my disposal this evening. In football, it's important to always believe."

Lyon finished third in Ligue 1 last season, behind winners Paris Saint-Germain and Marseille.
