Speaking at his press conference ahead of the Ligue1 meeting with LOSC Lille, Galiter claimed that they were working hard in training. He sent a strong message to his players and said:
“We are silent and we are working. There is a great disappointment after the defeat of Bayern but there is still a second leg. We can hope that with a full and fit squad, we have something to argue about in the second leg. In a difficult time, you have to shut up, work and enjoy being together.”

Speaking after the match, Mbappe said:
“Of course there is always hope, it’s only a first leg, it’s played over two games. We knew it before the game and we know it even more now. We are going to work, recover everyone and try to start winning again, already it is important to go there to qualify. We only lost 1-0 and there is no longer this away goal rule.”
“If we play our attacking football and score once, we’re tied. Afterwards, we will have to play with what we have in our pants to go and get the victory and qualify.”
The Frenchman wanted all his teammates to forget about the loss and focus on the second leg. He believes that the Germans find it hard when their opponents attack and said:
“Everyone needs to be healthy, sleep well, eat well. We can do something there. If we are more offensive, they are uncomfortable. Let’s quickly move on and go again.”
