Lazio claims that they reported the positive cases of Covid-19 in the squad to the relevant Local Health Authority via certified emails, ahead of the Champions League clash against Club Brugge, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Rome based newspaper la Repubblica.
The report details how the Public Prosecutors Office is currently investigating the Biancocelesti and their Covid-19 testing procedures, after the recent situation involving Ciro Immobile, Thomas Strakosha and Lucas Leiva.
The Public Prosecutor’s office are investigating if the Roman side communicated their positive cases to their Local Health Authority and if they correctly handled the health ‘bubble’.
They are not completely convinced about Lazio’s claims, but if it’s true then it could shift the balance into the Biancocelesti’s favour.
Immobile, Strakosha and Leiva all tested positive for Covid before two Champions League games against Club Brugge and Zenit, but all appeared in between those games against Torino, raising eyebrows.
