Striker Bafetimbi Gomis will miss Lyon's crucial final two matches of the season as they battle it out for the final UEFA Champions League qualifying place.

The 25-year-old, scorer of ten goals in the league this term, suffered a ligament injury to his right knee towards the end of Monday's 1-1 draw at Brest and is expected to be out for up to two months.

Lyon have a two-point lead over Paris Saint-Germain, though PSG can go a point in front, with two matches remaining, if they beat Bordeaux in their game in hand tomorrow.

Lyon currently occupy third place in the Ligue 1, which will yield a place in the qualifying round of next season's Champions League.
