Fekir out for OL's trip to Moscow
Olympique Lyonnais will have to do without injured captain and playmaker Nabil Fekir pour for the first leg of their round of 16 UEFA Europa League tie away to CSKA Moscow on Thursday.
Despite taking part in the final training session, Nabil Fekir was not included in coach Bruno Genesio's 20-man squad for the trip to Moascow to take on CSKA in the UEFA Europa League's round of 16 at 19:00 on Thursday evening.
According to the club's Twitter account, the forward "is not yet sufficiently recovered" from a knee injury sustained in a clash with opposite number Loïc Perrin the 1-1 Rhône derby draw with Saint-Etienne in Week 27. Fekir, OL's co-top scorer in Ligue 1 Conforama with 16 goals, is the only absence of note in Genesio's squad but he could make a return to action as in-form SM Caen come calling at the Groupama Stadium in Ligue 1 Conforama's Week 29 clash on Sunday.
