Lucien Favre (Nice coach, beaten in Tel Aviv) : “We didn’t play badly in the first half. We created four, five, six chances, with shots on the posts. It’s a lot. He missed very little. But we didn’t score. In the second half, […] in possession of the ball, the markdown, the accuracy of the choices, we were less good. They did it better than us. With us it lacked rhythm, movement and control of the ball.
“Ramsey? His game intelligence is there. He needs time to get to know his teammates well and be 100%.”
(on goal) It’s quite difficult for him (Schmeichel). But there is a small problem all the same, it is necessary to review the action. We did not come back too confident at half-time. There are quality players in front, with a very good organization. In the return match, we must not attack without a second thought. We will have to be smart in the game. But we know that we have to win with a two-goal difference. We will do it (reverse the trend). Ramsey? His game intelligence is there. He needs time to get to know his teammates well and be at 100%. He hasn’t played for a long time but felt good physically. That’s why he played from the start.
