Lazio risk losing points obtained from their matches against Torino and Juventus due to the Covid-19 test case in federal court, according to a report from Italian media outlet LazioNews24 earlier today.
The report details how the case was referred to court by the Federal Prosecutor’s Office, with Lotito and two of the club’s doctors set to appear before a judge to defend themselves and their actions.
The Roman club risk losing points obtained from the 4-3 win over Torino and 1-1 draw with Juventus back in November, the report continues.
In the win against the Granata, coach Simone Inzaghi used Italian forward Ciro Immobile, who had tested negative in the tests carried out by the lab in Avellino. The issue is that he should have still been in the mandatory 10-day quarantine after returning a positive test to UEFA.
Against Juventus, the problem is that the Biancocelesti had an ‘asymptomatic player’ (presumably Djavan Anderson) in the match-day squad who had not been subjected to the mandatory isolation period.
