Lazio Will Only Appeal Luiz Felipe’s Red Card if It Is a Two-Game Suspension

Lazio will only appeal Luiz Felipe’s red card in Sunday’s win over Inter should it be a two-game suspension.

As reported by Italian newspaper Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24), the FIGC’s sporting judge will release his decisions regarding the various incidents during this round of matches, including the Brazilian defender’s red card for ‘unsportsmanlike conduct’ following the full-time whistle of Sunday’s match.

Lazio intend to appeal the red card if the sporting judge decides to give Luiz Felipe a two-game suspension for ‘violent conduct’.

The Roman club would consider that too great a disparity compared to the actions of Denzel Dumfries and Samir Handanovic, who were only booked after grabbing and pushing Felipe Anderson following his controversial goal in the 3-1 win.

Luiz Felipe’s suspension means that coach Maurizio Sarri will be without either of his two first-choice centre-backs against Hellas Verona, with Francesco Acerbi also still suspended.

This means that the 62-year-old Italian coach will likely start Stefan Radu and Patric this weekend.
