Coach Jonas Eidevall knows FC Malmö have almost no chance of overturning a 5-0 deficit to Olympique Lyonnais but has set his side the task of winning Thursday's home UEFA Women's Champions League quarter-final second leg.
Lyon, chasing a third straight title, were irresistible last week at Stade de Gerland and look certain to earn a semi-final against the winner of the other Franco-Swedish tie between FCF Juvisy Essonne and Göteborg FC. It was a tough debut at the Malmö helm for Eidevall.
He knows last year's Damallsvenskan runners-up will be back in Europe next season, though, and wants his club to be the first to beat Lyon over 90 minutes since ASD Torres CF won 1-0 at home in the second leg of the 2009/10 quarter-finals – not enough to overturn an aggregate deficit. The French champions have not lost since, a run stretching over three years and 110 matches.
"It will be very difficult to reach the semi-finals," Eidevall told UEFA.com. "We can't focus on winning 5-0 or 6-0 at Malmö; we have to take it one step at a time, and focus on beating Lyon first off. I know they are on a long unbeaten run and that's what we will be very determined to change. Even if we don't reach the semi-finals, it will be a good way for us to go forward."
Lyon showed no signs of slowing on Sunday as they beat second division ASJ Soyaux 11-0 in the French Cup last 16; their narrowest win in the competition this season. They were even able to rest midfielder Camille Abily, who is enjoying the ride as Lyon continue to hit new heights.
"What could go wrong for Lyon this season?" Abily said. "At the moment nothing but it is important not to be too confident. For that we can count on our coach. We know he is there to keep us focused on our aim. Each time we score, opponents try to approach our box and leave us some space. As our forwards are very quick we get chances to score more."
Lyon coach Patrice Lair emphasised that the team must maintain their focus. "If Malmö had equalised following the opportunity they created in the first half, it would have been a totally different match," he said. "That is why we have to keep balance and remain serious and humble. With this score it would be a pity not to qualify ..."
