Lopes out, Myziane a doubt

An update on the squad's fitness ahead of Sunday's game against Metz.

Rony Lopes is sidelined after limping out of the 3-2 derby loss in Marseille with a thigh strain. "It's a big loss because you got the feeling, and he'd shown it during matches, that Rony had really found form. He was playing well and it was really promising," said coach Adrien Ursea,  who announced a three-week absence for his charge. "For me, it's a  challenge to find a solution so that the team is balanced and can perform against Metz."

After missing the game at the Orange-Vélodrome, Myziane "has a hamstring niggle, but in a different place to his previous injury." The Gym coach, "who can't taken any risks due to the number of injuries", will wait until the end of the week before deciding whether or not to call up his forward: "We still have two training sessions, we'll see how Myziane feels after those. We'll do tests and see what happens, all the while hoping he'll be available to face Metz."
