Ivaylo Petev, Dinamo coach
We have to be disciplined and we have to look like a top team tomorrow. After Friday's draw against Istra in our domestic league, I am not happy. I told the players they have to give everything for the club and I expect a positive response. We need to change some things. We have to show motivation and give the best we can against every team we play, not just Lyon.

Bruno Génésio, Lyon coach
It's difficult to say how big our qualification chances are, but we will do the best we can. We have to be patient and try to make a good start – if we score early that would be great. At the same time we will listen to the news from Seville. One of the reasons we have to win tomorrow is that we want to open the door to the Europa League.

Reporter's view: Elvir Islamović (@UEFAcomElvirI)
After four Group H defeats, with 12 goals shipped, Dinamo Zagreb's expectations are not high, but at the very least they would like to score a first goal in this section. With injury problems further exacerbating the low mood at the club, who knows where that goal might come from. Petev believes he knows how to motivate his team, but getting a positive result in these circumstances may be a stretch.
