Lyon monitor injured Makoun

Olympique Lyonnais' Jean II Makoun has suffered the recurrence of a groin problem which puts in doubt his availability for the second leg against FC Girondins de Bordeaux.

Midfielder Jean II Makoun has emerged as an early injury doubt for Olympique Lyonnais' UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg against FC Girondins de Bordeaux on Wednesday.

Although Makoun played the full 90 minutes of Lyon's 3-1 home victory against Bordeaux on Tuesday, he is struggling with the recurrence of a groin injury which he had picked up in the previous round against Real Madrid CF. Lyon have already ruled him out of Saturday's Ligue 1 trip to Stade Rennais FC.

The question for coach Claude Puel is whether the 26-year-old Cameroon international will recover in time for the Bordeaux return match. The injury originally kept him sidelined for two and a half weeks, until Makoun's reappearance against Grenoble Foot 38 last Saturday.

Left-back Aly Cissokho is also being monitored after sustaining an ankle knock in midweek, while forward Sidney Govou could be omitted from the squad to face Rennes as he has a stomach bug.
