Lyon's Brazilian international attacking midfielder Michel Bastos has returned to Brazil to undergo knee surgery, his French club confirmed on Tuesday.

"We preferred to move quickly in taking a decision to allow him time to recuperate for the final matches of the season," said Lyon coach Claude Puel.

Lyon play nine-time European champions Real Madrid in the Champions League last 16 at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday for the second leg of the knockout tie.
