Netherlands international Memphis Depay ruptured his ACL.

Which will very likely end his season at Lyon and cast doubt on his Euro 2020 hopes.

Lyon star Memphis Depay suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his left knee during Sunday’s Ligue 1 loss to Rennes. The 25-year-old is set to miss the rest of the season and becomes a major doubt for Netherlands’ Euro 2020 campaign.

The forward has enjoyed a fine Ligue 1 campaign, scoring nine goals and providing two assists in 13 games, but he faces at least six months out of action. Depay was substituted at half-time during Sunday’s Ligue 1 defeat at home to Rennes, having initially been hurt in a tussle with Hamari Traore. He is expected to be out for the rest of the season, says Lyon sporting director Juninho.

“It’s a very bad evening because we lost and because of the lack of quality. The very bad news is also the injury of Memphis, who could be out for a while,” Lyon sporting director Juninho said. “He is our captain and I am sad for him.”

Making matters worse for Lyon, midfielder Jeff Reine-Adelaide suffered a ruptured ACL in his right knee. Confirming both injuries, the French club said in a statement the pair were “unfortunately likely to be unavailable for at least six months”.
