Luiz Felipe Forced off in Lazio’s Win vs Fiorentina Due to Muscle Injury

By Apollo Heyes -

Lazio defender Luiz Felipe was forced off the pitch in last night’s 1-0 win over Fiorentina due to a muscle issue.

As highlighted by Italian media outlet LazioNews24 last night, the 24-year-old Brazilian defender was taken off in the 77th minute of the Biancocelesti’s 1-0 win over the Viola last night, suffering from pain as a result of a flexor problem.

Luiz Felipe’s condition is being monitored closely but it’s likely that he will not start in Lazio’s next game against Atalanta on Saturday afternoon, in order to avoid exacerbating the issue.

Coach Maurizio Sarri brought on Spanish defender Patric in his place yesterday, so there’s a chance that the Spaniard will start alongside Francesco Acerbi against Atalanta this weekend.

Luiz Felipe had just returned from his red card suspension, having missed the 4-1 loss against Hellas Verona on Sunday after receiving a red card for the incident involving Inter striker Joaquin Correa recently.
