Branislav Ivanovic: "We can be pleased with today's result"
-I think that the first game after a two or three-year break from the Champions League is always mentally difficult. 1-1 is a good result, but it could have been better for us. But really we can be happy with the result we got today. This will give us confidence in our next game in the competition.

Serdar Azmoun, got injured just before he scored and then went off at the break, an expected turn of events?

At first it seemed he injured his ankle. But it is very good that he managed to score. This gave us confidence and drove us on. We believed in ourselves and understood that we could win the match. Let's hope that everything is OK with Sardar and he will be back for the next game. 

Today you had your first proper match with Osorio and things went well, you restricted them limited chances.

I think yes. We played in the new formation and it went very well. Today we all played well and they didn't create many good chances. Lyon are a very dangerous team and could punish any small mistake. We can be pleased with today's result.
