By opening the scoring with a nice cross shot in the penalty area, Alexandre Lacazette greatly contributed to the precious success of the Lyonnais against Lens (2-1). For the Frenchman, this return to his native lands turns out to be a real success. With 14 goals scored in Ligue 1, “Laca” ranks second among the top scorers in Ligue 1 along with Jonathan David (LOSC) and Wissam Ben Yedder (Monaco). In front of this trio, only Folarin Balogun (Stade de Reims) does better with 15 units on the clock.

This Sunday evening, however, the former Gunner’s momentum was severely cut off. Victim of a strong pain in the left thigh, the 31-year-old player was forced out of the lawn even before the break. This morning, we told you that the absence of the General (as nicknamed by the Lyonnais) should be spread over the next two Ligue 1 matches.

But an official press release published at the beginning of the evening changes the situation. “Alexandre Lacazette will be forfeited for the trip to Auxerre, in Ligue 1, this Friday. A new medical and physical point will be made at the beginning of next week in order to adapt the best care and the best physical preparation for the Lyon striker.. can thus read on the Olympique Lyonnais website.

Contrary to what was therefore feared at first, Alexandre Lacazette could therefore be on the planned trip to Angers on February 25 if his thigh is better. We will still have to do without him next Friday on the lawn of the Abbé Deschamps stadium against the promoted Burgundian. Corentin Tolisso should inherit the captain’s armband.
