Lyon boss Garcia: Loss to Juve was the happiest defeat of my career!

The French side fell on Friday, but progressed to the Champions League quarter-finals courtesy of the away goals rule.

Rudi Garcia called Lyon's loss to Juventus on Friday "the happiest defeat of my career" as his side earned a place in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Memphis Depay's early penalty ultimately earned an away-goals victory for Lyon, despite Cristiano Ronaldo's double in Turin meaning the last-16 tie ended 2-2.

Manchester City, who overcame Real Madrid in Friday's other fixture, await the Ligue 1 side in the last eight on August 15 in Lisbon, and the result left former Roma coach Garcia revelling in his team's success.
