Olympique Lyonnais left-back Aly Cissokho is set for a three-week absence after sustaining a thigh injury.
The 23-year-old French international was forced off 56 minutes into Sunday's 1-1 draw at AC Arles-Avignon and as a result Cissokho will miss the UEFA Champions League Group B leaders' trip to SL Benfica on Tuesday. A point in Lisbon would take Lyon into the last 16. His place will be taken by either Timothée Kolodziejczak or Kim Källström, who deputised in Wednesday's French Cup loss to Paris Saint-Germain FC.
