Lazio’s Covid emergency continues?

Three Lazio players missed this morning’s training session and some of them showed symptoms of Covid, reports in Italy claim.

The Rome club travelled to Bruges for a Champions League match with only 16 players available earlier this week.

The club confirmed some of those who missed the game have tested positive for Covid but they have refused to reveal their identities.

The likes of Patric, Mohamed Fares and Jean-Daniel Akpa Akpro missed this morning’s training which took place after a new round of swab tests for the entire team.

According to both Patric and Fares have had symptoms that may be related to Covid but the outcome of today’s exams will only be known tomorrow.

As of today, Lazio are without the likes of Thomas Strakosha, Patric, Jean-Daniel Akpa Akpro, Danilo Cataldi, Mohamed Fares, Luis Alberto, Manuel Lazzari, Djavan Anderson, Ciro Immobile, Nicolò Armini, Luiz Felipe and Lucas Leiva.

Senad Lulic trained partially with the rest of the team today while Stefan Radu returned to the pitch after that he had only trained in the gym over the last few weeks.

As per the Serie A protocol, a player is available for a game if he tests negative for Covid 48 hours before a match.

Lazio are due to face Torino on Sunday and the game will go ahead provided that Biancocelesti have 13 players available.

The club, however, can request the postponement of the game if they have at least 10 players positive for Covid within a week since their first case emerged.

Multiple reports in Italy state Lazio want to play against Torino on Sunday and, at the moment, the club is not eager to request a postponement of the game.
