Acerbi off Seriously Injured in First Half of Lazio vs Empoli

Lazio defender Francesco Acerbi was forced off after 20 minutes in the first half of today’s match against Empoli.

As detailed by Italian media outlet LazioNews24, the 33-year-old Italian defender had just returned from an injury suffered in the win over Venezia before the Christmas Break and now things have gone from bad to worse for the player.

It’s practically certain that the Italian defender will be unavailable for Sunday’s match against Simone Inzaghi’s Inter, a big loss for such an important match.

It also seemed as if Acerbi was booed as he limped off the pitch, a sign that a portion of the fan base have still not forgiven him following his ‘shhh’ celebration last month.
