Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette set for a two-week spell on the sidelines

Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette (31) is set for a two-week spell on the sidelines, according to a report from L’Equipe.

Lacazette was subbed off just before half-time yesterday during Lyon’s home win against Lens for Ligue 1 gameweek 23. The former Arsenal man opened the scoring against the northern side, bagging his 14th Ligue 1 goal this season. L’Equipe report that Lacazette has had a MRI scan that has revealed a small hamstring strain.

Lacazette will therefore miss the next two away games for Les Gones. The Laurent Blanc-led side will face two relegation-battling outfits in the coming weeks. First, Lyon will play Auxerre on Friday and bottom-placed Angers on Saturday 25th February.

The OL skipper is expected to be back to feature against Grenoble in the quarter-finals of the Coupe de France on Tuesday February 28th. 9th-placed Lyon have won three of their last four Ligue 1 games and are now firmly in the running for a Europa League qualifying spot.
