Lucho on Olympiacos, Deschamps and Mandanda

Lucho González tells UEFA.com about what he expects from the visit of Olympiacos FC, the importance of Didier Deschamps' experience and Steve Mandanda's calming influence.

Lucho González scored the winning goal in Olympique de Marseille's victory at Olympiacos FC in September and, as the sides prepare to meet again, the 30-year-old midfielder told UEFA.com that he expects a different challenge, with the Greek season now in full flow. Victory on Wednesday will see Les Olympiens edge closer to qualification from the group stage for the first time since 1999, a feat the former FC Porto man partly attributes to the experience of coach and former UEFA Champions League winner Didier Deschamps as well as the calming influence of captain Steve Mandanda in goal. Watch our exclusive interview.
