Lyon's influential Argentinian forward Lisandro Lopez has been ruled out of Sunday's crunch clash with French league leaders Lille.

Lisandro, last season's Ligue 1 Player of the Year, missed the 1-1 UEFA Champions League draw at home to Real Madrid on Tuesday with a thigh injury and has not recovered sufficiently for the trip north to Lille.

"The injury has not completely healed but the recovery is on track," said Lyon coach Claude Puel.
