Lazio are anxious about the injury suffered by star striker Ciro Immobile, who could be sidelined for a number of weeks.
The 32-year-old Italian striker was taken off less than 30 minutes into the Biancocelesti’s tough 0-0 draw with Udinese yesterday, looking pained after suffering a probable hamstring injury. The loss of Immobile would be disastrous for Maurizio Sarri and Lazio, with the player being a true leader on and off the pitch.
As reported by Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24), Immobile will undergo a round of medical tests on Wednesday and there are currently two likely outcomes of these – a first-degree strain would force him to the sidelines for around 20 days, allowing him to take part in the derby against Roma on 6th November.
A second-degree strain would keep Immobile out of action until after the World Cup break, making him wait until Serie A returns on 4th January.
The third hypothesis, one Lazio do not want to consider yet, is a full muscle tear, which would essentially end his season.
