Lloris targets Coupe run
Lyon keeper Hugo Lloris has called on his side to relaunch their season following the winter break with a Coupe de la Ligue win over Lille.
After Lisandro Lopez's hat-trick saw Les Gones past local minnows Lyon Duchere in the Coupe de France on Sunday, in the club's first game since 21 December, Lyon face the reigning champions in France's second cup competition before returning to Ligue 1 action against high-flying Montpellier.
That creates the need to hit the ground running, and Lloris said at a press conference televised on lequipe.fr: "We know this match can launch the second part of our season. There is everything to gain. We have to take this match seriously and produce a performance. Lille have a very good team, it is down to us to frustrate them."
