Christophe Galtier (Lille coach), after the defeat against Nîmes (1-2) : “Nîmes did not steal its victory. We had a very average start, being absent from the start and being blocked, which is not usual for us. We have surely forgotten some fundamentals, principles of the game, and conceded two goals. We didn’t have much success in the game. Even though we tried to undertake, we did it in a very disorganized way, with a lot of approximations, which resulted in a poor game on our part. With the sequence of matches, our quality of play has weakened, we have less precision in transmissions, less technical accuracy and quality in the finish on the offensive plan.

There may be a reflection to be carried out on rotations, it can also be linked to fatigue or a lack of experience and control in this situation where one is very exposed. Are we able to withstand this pressure? Faced with low blocks, we have to bring more width and presence in the area, we have certain assets but perhaps not all to beat different team profiles. In the top four, we are perhaps the team with the least experience or mastery. “
