But thanks to corrective surgery last Wednesday, the France international is now on the road to recovery.
While the issue would have caused Lacazette a lot of inconvenience, the striker had chosen to postpone any medical intervention until the international break to avoid missing out on any of the Ligue 1 campaign.
Despite having only recently gone under the knife, Lacazette is expected to be available for Lyon’s next league game when they face Lens on Sunday.

Lacazette returned to Lyon this summer after five seasons in the Premier League with Arsenal
Lacazette returned to the French side this summer after a successful five-year spell with the Emirates, including winning the FA Cup in 2020.
The club have endured a mixed start to the current season, having moved up to third place after 13 points from their first six games.
Peter Bosz’s side hope the international matches have brought some much-needed rest for its players after the club suffered three consecutive defeats en route to half-time.
