Lloris reurns, Lisandro out for Real clash

Lyon's Argentinian star Lisandro Lopez will miss Tuesday's UEFA Champions League last-16 first leg match with Real Madrid, it was confirmed today.

Lopez had been rated as extremely doubtful for the match after he suffered a thigh injury in training on Thursday - though the club denied reports he had picked up the injury when he lashed out at the ball when informed he would not start Friday's league match with Nancy.

Lyon, though, received a boost as France international goalkeeper Hugo Lloris returned to training after missing the 4-0 win over Nancy due to illness.
