LYON, France (AP) - Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette looks set to make his return from injury after being included in the squad for Sunday’s home game against Nantes.

Lyon coach Hubert Fournier named Lacazette in the squad on Friday. Lyon has a two-point lead over Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain with 13 games remaining.

Lacazette, the league’s top scorer with 21 goals, has been sidelined since pulling a hamstring muscle in a 2-0 win against Metz on Jan. 25 - a match in which he scored a penalty.

The team has struggled since, drawing three matches and scoring only twice, although two of those games were against Monaco and PSG.
