Jérémy, you're very familiar with the UEFA Champions League. When did you last play in the tournament?
The last time was with Malaga. We had a good run but were knocked out by Borussia Dortmund. There's always something extraordinary about the UEFA Champions League It's a special tournament. We've got quite a young squad. For a lot of the players, it's going to be their first experience of the Champions League. It's a real opportunity for them. It's when you're coming to the end of your career that you truly realise it.
Will success depend on the squad's ability to cope with the busy calendar?
It's true that playing so many matches is tough, but the most difficult one is always the one straight after the UEFA Champions League fixture. In European games, you burn up more energy and there's more pressure too. And afterwards, subconsciously, you often switch off. Until the next international break, we'll be playing for three days. It's going to feel like we'll never get through it, so we'll need to do our best to win games early on and get off to a good start. And you recover better when you win. It'll be mentally and physically challenging but we're ready.
You have to be more demanding of yourself.
What's the main different between a league game and UEFA Champions League match?
The UEFA Champions League demands a lot more concentration than the league. Although obviously in Ligue 1 we always try to be as focused as possible. In Europe, you have to be even more focused. You have to be more demanding of yourself.
How do you see our chances in what looks a fairly evenly-matched group?
All the clubs in the group are capable of going through to the knockout stages. Like in the league, it's very important to get off to a good start. At the moment, this season reminds me of my last one with Malaga. The draw was fairly similar. People said we'd struggle but we ended up finishing top of our group. Although we've got a young side, we can achieve something.
