Lucas, what did you make of the Reims match?
Above all, I remember that against a very physical and well-organised side, we still had a number of scoring opportunities. Unfortunately we just lacked that little bit of luck. For my part, I spent a lot of the time on the left flank and so I tried to cut inside to find a shooting chance. I tried it several times but couldn't beat the goalkeeper.
After eight games of Ligue 1, how do you rate the championship?
It's a real step up from Ligue 2. You can feel the difference everywhere. The opposition sides like to play football and that means there's a little more space for which suits me better. To play against Paris and Marseille were really great experiences for me and the other young players in the squad. It helps us improve.
Where do you think you need to further improve your game to get even better?
I need to keep working in every department, I'm young and still have a lot to learn. I think all this matches will help the team play better and better. As time goes by, we are getting more and more fluid in our ball movement and we will keep getting better in front of goal.
You mentioned the big games against Marseille and Paris... this Saturday it's another big game with a Ligue 1 classic between Monaco and Saint-Etienne. How are you approaching this game?
I don't think Saint-Etienne will settle with trying to close down play like Paris and Marseille, so it should be a spectacular match. Our ambition is very simple. We are playing at home, so we will be playing for all three points. We are also defending our first place on the ladder. It would be very good to be in top spot during the October international break. It's another important match in the start to our season.
