Both Jeremie Berthod and Anthony Reveillere have picked up knocks that leave the French side with an injury crisis in defence.
Berthod was injured in training after clashing heads with Malouda, ironically the man who may have to fill in for him on Tuesday night. Reveillere is also struggling with a strained muscle.
Malouda lined up in a defensive role for the Championnat fixture against Ajaccio on Saturday and coach Paul Le Guen (pictured) is happy to play him there again instead of his usual midfield role.
"I was not worried by playing Florent in that position because he is a versatile player," stated the Lyon boss.
"Obviously though we would like to get Jeremie and Anthony back as soon as possible."
