Aurier hails important victory

Le Championnat

Paris Saint-Germain defender Serge Aurier has hailed the importance of his side's 2-1 victory over Lyon on Sunday.

Les Parisiens were pushed hard at the Stade des Lumieres but an Edinson Cavani brace handed them all three points, as they extended their winning run in Ligue 1 to four straight victories.

With Nice only drawing at home to Bastia earlier in the day, the victory means PSG now sit level with Monaco just a single point behind the leaders.

Aurier admits his side were pushed hard on Sunday and feels their triumph will set them up nicely going forward.

“It was a difficult match against a team that wanted a good result,” he said. “We knew that it would not be easy but in the end we won.

“We started the game well and showed a lot of composure. We scored, which allowed us to take a bit of a breather. We won this game through character. We are happy because it was important to win this evening.”
