Europa League semi-final second leg
Venue: Stade de Lyon
Date: Thursday 11 May
Time: 20:05 BST

Lyon boss Bruno Genesio says that all is not lost, and the French club can overturn a 3-goal deficit against Ajax to reach the Europa League final.

This is the closest that Ajax at the brink of a European final in 21 years after winning 4-1 in their first-leg last week.

Lyon have averaged over four goals per game in their Europa League home matches this season.

“There’s an hour and a half to overcome our deficit,” said Genesio, whose side are fourth in Ligue 1.

The winners will play either Manchester United or Celta Vigo, who trail 1-0 to the Premier League side, in the 24 May final in Stockholm.

Genesio believes his side’s 3-2 league victory over Nantes on Sunday showed they are capable of pulling off a comeback against Ajax.

“We’ll have to create chances and take them, but also remain calm and organised when we lose the ball,” added Genesio.

“We have to remember that we scored three goals on Sunday. And if we score three against Ajax, we could go through.”
