Lazio midfielder Luis Alberto did not take part in yesterday’s training session, a worrying sign ahead of tomorrow’s game against Sassuolo.
As reported by Italian newspaper Il Tempo (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 29-year-old Spanish midfielder’s absence in Formello yesterday is a cause for concern, following his brief appearance against Galatasaray on Thursday.
Luis Alberto’s absence from training yesterday now puts his chances of featuring against Sassuolo tomorrow in doubt, a worrying thought for the Biancocelesti.
This could put Sarri and Lazio in a tough position, with Sergej Milinkovic-Savic also unavailable due to suspension.
The 29-year-old Luis Alberto, who is contracted to the Biancocelesti until 2025, has made 21 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1353 minutes. In that time, he has scored two goals and provided four assists.
