Coupe de France: Vieira recognizes the superiority of OL

Strasbourg coach Patrick Vieira spoke on Tuesday of "a difficult period" and a team "in doubt", after the elimination of Racing in the quarter-finals of the Coupe de France against Lyon (0 to 0, 4 to 3 on penalties). “It’s a difficult time. We saw a team more confident and another a little more in doubt,” commented the technician.

“We tried to keep our backs. In this match we managed our difficulties quite well with great solidarity. But at the end it was too little offensively to hope to win,” he said.

“It’s an elimination in the Coupe de France and we wanted to go to the semi-final. Offensively, we lacked a lot of things to endanger our opponent. We were united, we defended rather well,” said the 1998 world champion, who has some satisfaction in view of the next matches.

Strasbourg is currently 13th in Ligue 1 and remains in six matches without a victory in the league (four defeats, two draws). “The satisfaction remains to have been defensively coherent and this solidarity. It's positive and reassuring. We found certain things that we didn't have in the last two championship matches. What we want is to win and score goals but unfortunately, we did not have the right balance between the defensive phase and the offensive aspect where we were not inspired. There was a lack of accuracy and technical quality,” he concluded.
