It was during the home clash with Olympique Lyonnais that Zlatan Ibrahimovic picked up a heel-injury that has proven more severe than initially expected.
The newspaper Le Parisien has claimed that it is highly unlikely that Ibrahimovic will need surgery, however, he will not be available for the upcoming games against Bordeaux, Lorient and APOEL.
So far, his misadventure has caused him to miss seven games, including significant matches against FC Barcelona and Russia.
If his absence is extended even further, both the league game versus Olympique Marseille, as well as the Euro 2016 qualifying match against Montenegro, will be at risk.
During Ibrahimovic's injury, Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani has been doing his best to fill the gap. However, a controversial goal celebration saw him off the pitch in the recent league match against RC Lens, and it is uncertain who will stand as third in line.
