Paqueta absent from training on the eve of OL – West Ham in the Europa League

The traditional quarter of an hour of training open to journalists the day before a European Cup match will first have reassured OL supporters before the confrontation against West Ham (1-1 in London in first leg) this Thursday evening in the quarter-finals of the Europa League at Groupama Stadium. Indeed, the uncertain Anthony Lopes, Tanguy Ndombélé, Houssem Aouar and Thiago Mendes, all potential holders, were present on the lawn of the training ground.

But all the news is not good on the side of Lyon, since Lucas Paqueta did not train with his teammates. OL, who will only give their group this Wednesday evening, have not yet communicated on the state of health of the Brazilian international (24 years old, 31 selections). But if Paqueta were to be positive for Covid, which remains the most likely hypothesis, there is little chance that the test will be negative within 24 hours.
