Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri hopes to recover full-back Manuel Lazzari in time for the match against Juventus.
As detailed by Italian newspaper Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 27-year-old Italian full-back suffered a calf injury in the 2-2 draw with Olympique Marseille at the start of this month and has been on the sidelines since.
The return of the former SPAL full-back would be key for Sarri, who currently only has one full-back available currently in Elseid Hysaj, as Adam Marusic is currently in isolation after testing positive for Covid-19.
Lazzari has made 13 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 703 minutes. In that time, he has scored one goal and begun adapting to Sarri’s system.
