Réveillère admits Lyon were tired

Published: Wednesday 21 April 2010, 23.58CET
Anthony Réveillère admitted Olympique Lyonnais were a tired side because of a long few days on the road after they lost 1-0 at FC Bayern München, but warned the UEFA Champions League semi-final could turn next Tuesday at the Stade de Gerland. "We were not in peak condition," the defender said. "We held them in the first half but, in the second, we had nothing left in our legs to score that away goal. I think our journey took its toll, the return from Bordeaux [on Saturday] then coming here. But that's no excuse and it could have been worse considering their chances. We had a couple too. One-nil is not good, but not bad. Gerland will be on fire."
