Griezmann, Martinez doubts for Lyon

Real Sociedad have two notable minor injury concerns ahead of the Champions League Play-off round second leg against Lyon.

This Wednesday sees the San Sebastian outfit play host at Anoeta with a 2-0 lead in the tie against their French counterparts to defend, for a place in the group stages of this season’s Champions League at stake.

However, Jagoba Arrasate is facing slight concern over the availability of winger Antoine Griezmann, who scored the first goal in France last week, and full-back Carlos Martinez.

Both players returned from the first leg last Tuesday with minor knocks that they have so far been unable to shake off, leading to doubts over their fitness heading into the return leg this week.

Medical staff at the club are described as confident that the pair will be able to recover in time to feature, although Martinez’s chances of returning from a bruised right thigh appear thinner.
