Garde hails ´crazy´ Bastia game

5 November 2012 05:26

Lyon manager Remi Garde said his side's 5-2 win over Bastia was one of the craziest matches he has ever been involved in.

Garde's side took an early two-goal lead, but the visitors were back on level terms by the 32nd minute and also had a man advantage following Dejan Lovren's straight red card.

But the initiative was handed back to the hosts when Fethi Harek was sent off for a second bookable offence and Lisandro Lopez converted the resulting penalty.

Lyon made sure of the points in stoppage time with another two goals to close to within one point of league-leaders PSG and Marseille.

"Yes, it was a crazy game, one of the craziest I have seen. When we were 10 versus 10 men it became crazy," Garde said.

"I did speak to a player during the game, I could not control myself, I just wanted him to play football, but it s not my place to talk to the opponent. I was just afraid for my players, that's all.

"After, obviously, we have to analyse every situation. The Dejan Lovren red card is bad news for us. But the good thing is that the team adapted itself to the two lines in a 4-4-1 formation with just one striker.

"When you have 10 players on the pitch there is not many innovations you can make tactically."

"There are a lot of things in this game, positive and negative, the good things for us are that we have created a lot of opportunities, again, and we were very good in attack, even though I think we can do better.

"But defensively we were down too quickly, and we know we have to work on that. Though it will be more difficult with all the red cards we are being given."
