Lyon captain Cris has admitted he is unlikely to be fit in time to face Manchester United in the second-leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.

The Brazil defender was on the bench for last week´s 1-1 first-leg draw after recovering from torn knee ligaments but, after suffering a muscular inflammation, the 30-year-old has confirmed he is likely to miss the Old Trafford clash on March 4.

"I think really that I won´t be ready to face Manchester," Cris told French sports daily L´Equipe.
