Lazio will be without Andre Dias for at least three weeks after tests showed a lesion to the left thigh muscle.
The defender has struggled with numerous injury problems this season and limped off clutching the top of his leg during the 3-1 defeat to Parma on Saturday night.
Dias lasted only 16 minutes and today tests confirmed a first degree lesion to the left thigh muscle, which will keep him on the treatment table for around three weeks.
It means the Brazilian will miss out some big games for his club against Napoli and Juventus.
