At the end of the UEFA Europa League match between Marseille and Lazio, the head of the biancoceleste medical staff, Dr. Fabio Rodia, spoke to the Lazio Style Channel microphones to clarify the conditions of Brazilian defensive midfielder Lucas Leiva, who was forced off of the pitch after just 46′ of play: “He has picked up an injury to the right adductor. We will carry out the appropriate examinations no sooner than the next 48 hours. As for the rest of the players, there is nothing particularly disturbing to report. “

Lazio won the match by a score of 3-1 – they were up 1-0 when Lucas Leiva went off and Simone Inzaghi was forced to make changes to the starting XI: he inserted Adam Marusic, Senad Lulic moved to a central midfield role, Marco Parolo dropped to a central defensive midfield role, and lastly, Martin Caceres moved to the left flank.

In terms of Felipe Caicedo, the striker does not seem to be injured (and if so not that serious) as reported by Rodia. It looks like Inzaghi substituted the player more for a precautionary issue.
