At a live press conference yesterday morning, coach Denis Lavagne stressed the difficulty of waiting for his team against O Madia. However, he acknowledged that his team was prepared accordingly and that they were well-armed to succeed together.
“Om is traveling well. The team has won 4 of 8 games played away from home. I think she scored more goals than at home. This is a team that plays by allowing the opposing team to attack, before surprising with blocks. So we have a warning, ”Lavagne said confidently.
“We need to attack when we are vigilant so as not to be surprised.”
Not surprisingly, the OM team that traveled well in this first phase, when asked by its players to be very careful to avoid cash tomorrow afternoon, announced that the French coach would choose an overreach attack. “The match is going well. We had no injuries and we were fully booked. We are in a good dynamic, now we know it will be difficult and we still have to make efforts. It will be necessary to attack, but also to be vigilant not to surprise the blocks. We always have to be organized, and then we have to score first, ”he stressed.
“We beat MCA, but we have to question ourselves, because every match is a challenge.”
Lavagne warned that despite his team being in a series of good results with 3 wins in a row in the league and qualifying for the 2nd and group stage on the road, this Friday’s meeting will not be so easy. “We have to ask ourselves and we can not say we have won the MCA, NAHD and we have qualified for the group stage of the CAF Cup, but it is a new challenge. Every match is a challenge and every match, you have to take it as a challenge, prepare conscientiously to win and do not believe that you have come. Taking all the opponents with great humility. All matches are difficult and you have to make the necessary efforts to win them. ”
“We tried to bring players to earth to win over OM”
So his players are not happy, especially since most of them are young, Lavagne asked them to keep their feet on the ground at his press conference. “We tried to bring the players back to the ground. But I agree that it’s better to have shoes on your head. I would also say that it’s much easier to deal with it than to deal with anything that has a lot of negative pressure. It’s true that there are very few people in their teens, they have found that we have to be with them. , So that they will return this Friday with the same determination as they did against the MCA. “
