Lille's quest to reel in reigning champions Lyon has suffered a setback.Lille's quest to reel in reigning champions Lyon has suffered a setback following an injury to Christophe Landrin.
Landrin was hurt during Lille's 2-1 home victory over Lyon at the weekend which lifted them to within three points of the leaders.
But the win came at a price as midfielder Landrin suffered a broken rib and was forced out of the game in the closing minutes.
The 27-year-old is likely to require at least three weeks on the sidelines and his absence will be felt by the season's surprise packages in Ligue 1.
Mathieu Chalme picked up an ankle injury in the game although he is only expected to miss this week's cup tie with Nice.
