Benzema: "We had a good season last year, but we're better now; we can still make progress and we continue to improve"
"I'll be able to take off the mask in a few days. The important thing is that the manager used me tonight. We have to help the team whenever we can and wherever we play. What matters is that we took three points."
"I don't care if I play as a centre back or as a full back. I had to help the team due to a teammate's injury. We gave a great performance in the first half and we had chances to finish the game after half-time."
"Cristiano's 100-goal mark is hard to overtake. We're all aware of his potential and he has yet to score many more goals."
"I don't know why Real Madrid had never won at Gerland before, but what matters is we finally did tonight. We played well and we're very happy. Olympique Lyonnais have great players and they made things difficult for us."
"We've improved this year. We had a good season last year, but we're better now. We can still make progress and we continue to improve."
