Hazard on a high after Lille win

23 November 2011 07:38

Attacking midfielder Eden Hazard said Lille's determination was their strength in Tuesday's 2-0 victory over CSKA Moscow.

Following an own goal from CSKA's Vasili Berezutski, the Ligue 1 champions doubled their lead in the Champions League clash through Senegal international Moussa Sow.

The win lifted Lille from the bottom of Group B to third above their Russian opponents and kept them in the race to qualify for the last 16.

"It was a very important win for us today. We didn't start the competition as well as we may have wanted, but we managed to get a win here," Hazard told UEFA.com.

"Coming into today's game, there were still two matches to go."

"Today was like a semi-final for us. We have managed to win this game, and now we will go into what will be our final against Trabzonspor, when we have to make sure we are victorious in order to keep our hopes of progressing alive." Hazard said.

The 20-year-old midfielder admitted that while the club could have done better with converting chances earlier in the game, the performance overall was positive.

"The whole team played a good match. We had chances to score early on, which would have given us a really big boost," he said.

"Unfortunately we didn't manage to do this, despite creating a lot of chances, but it didn't matter in the end and we were able to score twice in the second half and win the game."

"We played really well today and it was vital to get all three points to keep our hopes of qualifying alive."

With Trabzonspor only managing a 1-1 draw with Inter, Lille are now only one point behind the second-placed Turkish side.

Lille and Trabzonspor clash at Stade Lille-Metropole on December 7.
