Lisandro is a doubt for Olympique Lyonnais's UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg against Real Madrid CF at Stade de Gerland on Tuesday because of a hamstring problem.

The striker suffered the injury during training on Thursday while preparing for the Ligue 1 match against AS Nancy-Lorraine, which Lyon won 4-0, the following day. "His participation against Real [Madrid] is in doubt," said Lyon coach Claude Puel.

Voted Ligue 1 Player of the Year by his peers last season, the 27-year-old has started only 13 of the Gones' 24 top-flight matches this term due to a succession of minor injuries. He scored twice in four group stage appearances but has not registered in any competition since he struck his eighth league goal of the campaign in a 1-1 draw with Olympique de Marseille on 19 December.
