In spite of his side's poor start to the season, Garde believes that there is light at the end of the tunnel for Lyon.
"I have regrets as we conceded two stupid goals," Garde said in his press conference. "We were timid in the first half and gave them too much respect.
"We got back to 2-1 after a good team move. In open play we weren't in too much trouble.
"I'm realistic when it comes to the potential of this team. I know we need to do better and if we keep the same spirit and play more consistently then we'll get there."
Lyon host Guingamp next weekend.
