Tousart revels in PSG scalp

Ligue 1

Lyon's Lucas Tousart has praised his side's spirit following Sunday's 2-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain.

Nabil Fekir gave Les Gones an early lead but Layvin Kurzawa equalised on the stroke of half-time.
The drama continued after the interval, with Dani Alves being sent off before the hour and it fell to Memphis Depay to split the sides with a spectacular solo strike on 90 minutes.
Sunday’s win sees Bruno Genesio’s men close the gap in the title race down to eight points and Tousart hailed the way his team battled home, having spent most of the game without the ball.
“We are very happy with this result tonight even if it was not easy, against Paris it’s always complicated,” he said. “They have more the ball than us tonight but we managed to block, resist and make the round back at the right time in the game.
“We knew we would have the opportunities and we are rewarded tonight for all the work that the team provided. We were able to put the intensity that was needed and we emerged victorious tonight, we are very happy and satisfied.”
