Monaco are sweating on the fitness of Diego Perez after the Uruguayan suffered an ankle injury in training.
Perez was taking part in a strenuous training session on Tuesday ahead of this weekend's crunch match with reigning champions Lyon.
The midfielder was involved in a collision with goalkeeper Flavio Roma which caused the South American to stop training immediately.
He was quickly diagnosed with a sprained ankle but is waiting to undergo more detailed medical examinations.
The 25-year-old has definitely been ruled out of this week's clash with Lyon and is struggling to be fit for next week's UEFA Champions League tie with PSV Eindhoven.
