Guus Hiddink gave his views on the game in the press hall, close to the Stade de Gerland, on Tuesday night. He told reporters that he hoped his side would create chances and take them all. We must not concede anythingHiddink once again emphasized on Tuesday night that PSV face a tall task. "It would be a wonderful achievement if we could pull off the SHOCK RESULT (in capital letters) needed to make sure of qualification for the quarter finals. It will be very difficult indeed, following the result in Eindhoven. We were here last year as well and then we drew 1-1, which was a fantastic result. But we were given a hard time that night. Lyon were already very ambitious and wanted to do well in Europe. We created one or two opportunities and Phillip Cocu scored one goal. So we must now create chances and take them all. And we must not concede anything; we need complete concentration. But it is still possible for us to reach the next phase", concluded Hiddink his preview.Injured playersHiddink could not present any news on the injured players. "All players that are doubtful hope to start. Michael Reiziger is likely to start, but Michael Lamey and Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink are doubts. We will first have to wait and see how they respond to the final training."A Dutch sports writer wondered if the 1-4 defeat that Olympique Lyon suffered against Rennes in the French league would have any effects on the French champions. Hiddink refused to give a value judgement. "A top side will slip to one or two defeats at home a season and so did Lyon. But one of the characteristic things of a top club is that they never panic. And they immediately made amends by winning the next away game." At their bestThe conclusion he drew was quite clear. "All players must be at their best tomorrow night to earn a win. I know what my players are up to." After the press conference, the training session in the Stade de Gerland started, watched by media representatives, sponsors, fans that had made the trip to Lyon and UEFA officials. The PSV squad trained for over one hour on half of the pitch. The other half was covered with canvas.
