One day before the return match against West Ham in the Europa League, Lucas Paqueta was absent from training with the Lyon group.
In difficulty in Ligue 1 even if all is not yet lost, theOlympique Lyonnais relies mainly on the Europa League to save its end of the season. The prospect of lifting a first European cup, which would be Gones’ first trophy for 10 years, and qualifying for the Champions League could indeed make people forget the irregularity in the league this year.
For this, it will first be necessary to eliminate West Ham, 6th in the Premier League and who managed to hang the Lyonnais (1-1) by being reduced to 10 in the quarter-final first leg. The task will therefore not be easy for Peter Bosz and his players, especially since a major asset could be missing.

According to information from journalists of Canal + present at the OL training center, Lucas Paqueta was absent from collective training on Wednesday and could therefore miss the match against the Londoners. If the reason for his absence has not been specified, he could miss the Lyonnais in the most important match of the season so far. The Brazilian is the outfield player most used by Peter Bosz this season.
Good news though, Houssem Aouar was there, just like Anthony Lopes and Tanguy Ndombele, only Lyon goalscorer in the first leg.
