Houssem Aouar remains only absentee for Lyon ahead of the PSG encounter

Paris Saint-Germain travel to Lyon to take on Peter Bosz’s men on Sunday evening in what could potentially be a decisive game for the OL manager.

According to what is reported by RMC Sport, Houssem Aouar remains the only player missing from Lyon’s 21-man squad assembled ahead of their Ligue 1 fixture against the title-holders.

As the club has not yet issued any official reason as to why they excluded Aouar from the squad heading toward one of their most important games of the season, the report claims that it may have been Bosz’s decision to go into the high-octane clash without the services of the talented 24-year-old midfielder.

Aouar was heavily linked with a move away from Lyon in the summer transfer window. Since the start of the season, the player has made only one appearance, garnering 30 minutes of football in the new campaign thus far.

He sustained a knee injury which kept him out of the action for four matches on the trot. Aouar was on the bench in the game against Monaco but did not take the field last week. It remains to be seen how and when Bosz decides to get him back.
