Lyon’s Rafael: “Roma looked tired against Palermo.”

Rafael, Lyon right-back, made some statements today to the official television station of the French club. These are the words of the Brazilian:

“PSG’s match against Barcelona will help us because we understand that we have to stay focused all the time and it will be impossible to defend throughout the entire match, especially for us as we love to attack. Grenier? I am very happy to have seen him play this past weekend. I saw Roma’s match against Palermo and they looked tired.”
