Jean Michel-Aulas, president of Lyon, is optimistic for Thursday’s clash with FC Porto, the second leg of the Europa League round of 16.
Despite Sunday’s home loss to Rennes (2-4), which left the team in 10th place in Ligue 1, Michel-Aulas took to Twitter to provide an update:
“On Thursday, we will qualify for the quarter-finals of the Europa League. We know how to do it and everything is still possible in Ligue 1, because there are still 33 points on the table to win, and we will still play big games.
Lyon will take the lead against FC Porto, thanks to the 1-0 victory at Dragão, thanks to a goal from Lucas Paquetá.
