Scorer on Sunday against Lens (2-1), Alexandre Lacazette was injured just before the break. He will miss Lyon for two weeks.
It’s a blow for Olympique Lyonnais. Despite his success obtained on Sunday on his lawn against Lens (2-1), as part of the twenty-third round of Ligue 1, the Rhone club deplores the loss of Alexandre Lacazette. After opening the scoring for his side in the first half, the striker was forced out early due to thigh pain. The MRI performed on Monday revealed a slight grade 1 injury to the ischio. A verdict that should imply an absence of about two weeks.

The information relayed by The Team is therefore not the best news for Laurent Blanc. The coach of Gones will have to do without his top scorer in the league (fourteen goals). A stroke of luck all the same for the Lyonnais: they will not have any big opponents to face during Lacazette’s recovery period, even if they will still have to be wary of Auxerre (19th) to whom they travel on February 17, but also from Angers, which they will visit on February 25.
It remains to be seen whether the former Arsenal player will be operational on time to face Grenoble in the quarter-finals of the Coupe de France. A match set for February 28 at Groupama Stadium.
