Nuno Santo doesn’t believe Valencia’s trip to Lyon will be ‘decisive’ for their Champions League future but admits the need to win.
Los Che go to France having lost at home to Zenit St Petersburg in their first round fixture, with the pressure coming on the Coach in recent weeks.
“We need to get the best out of each player in each game. Playing 4-4-2 against this opponent isn’t the most appropriate,” Nuno said, Marca reports.
“It will not be a decisive game or definitive game. But with the result of the first round it’s necessary to score and that is of utmost importance.
“It’s a beautiful game. We’re in the Champions League and that is reason enough for motivation. We changed the dynamic and we need to improve.
“We’re playing against a team with great quality. We want to compete and be united to score.
“Lyon and Zenit are different teams. I don’t think we’ll have 100% of the ball but Lyon won’t give it up. I believe the team that has more of the ball will take the game.”
