Remi Garde thanks fans for Lyon support in Coupe de la Ligue

Lyon coach Remi Garde praises his team's fans following the support shown during the club's 2-1 victory over Troyes in the Coupe de la Ligue.

Lyon coach Remi Garde has praised his team's fans following the support shown during the club's 2-1 victory over Troyes in the Coupe de la Ligue.

Goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Bafetimbi Gomis cancelled out a solitary finish from Thiago Xavier, as Lyon progressed into the final of tournament.

"It's not always easy against a Ligue 2 side that plays good football. It wasn't easy," Garde told reporters after the match.

"I think we saw rather a good game, with two teams who were looking to play. The players are happy, and their relationship with the fans is important.

"They're a young team and need to be supported. The crowd did that. In the last 15 minutes, there was a lot of support. That explains the scenes of joy at the end of the game."

Lyon will now face Ligue 1 title hopefuls Paris Saint-Germain in the final.
