Lyon forward Karim Benzema should have recovered from a hip injury in time for Wednesday's Champions League last 16, second leg at Barcelona, coach Claude Puel said.

"He's doing well," Puel told a news conference at the Nou Camp. "We are optimistic he'll be able to play and we'll see how he is after training later."

The first leg at Stade Gerland was a 1-1 draw.
