In Lazio’s Preseason Friendly against Serie B side Frosinone, Luiz Felipe was recklessly tackled by Grigoris Kastanos in the 6th minute, forcing the Brazilian defender to be subbed off.

Leaving the Stadio Benito Stirpe on crutches, many (including the club) thought that the player had suffered a serious injury that would keep him out indefinitely. However, following tests carried out at the Paideia Clinic, no fracture or break has occurred.

While a sign of relief for the Biancocelesti, the defender will still be sidelined for at least two weeks, making him unavailable for selection for the first two matches of the season against Cagliari (September 26, 2020) and Atalanta (September 20, 2020).

Therefore, Patric is expect to be the starting right centre-back until Luiz Felipe recovers.
