Lazio’s club doctor says Antonio Candreva, Milan Bisevac, Ricardo Kishna, Lucas Biglia and Stefan Radu will all miss Saturday’s Genoa clash.
Candreva picked up a knock in the defeat to Napoli yesterday and his name has been added to a lengthy injury list.
However, captain Lucas Biglia’s recovery is going well and doctor Stefano Salvatori hopes to see him back in action against Galatasaray in two weeks’ time.
“Bisevac hasn’t recovered from his muscle strain and he won’t be available for Saturday’s match with Genoa,” Salvatori told Lazio Style Radio.
“Candreva? The injury wasn’t much to worry about. Today and tomorrow he will do physiotherapy work, we will try to have him ready for next Thursday. He’ll also be out for Saturday.
“There’s good news for Biglia, everything is going well. The objective is to see him on the pitch for the away match with Galatasaray in two weeks’ time.
“If everything goes well we will evaluate the chances of him playing. It’s a remote possibility at the moment, but we’ll see in the next few days.
“Radu’s recovery is going well, he’ll play next Thursday against Verona.
“Braafheid worked with the team today and the response has been good. At the moment it’s possible he’ll be available for Saturday. We’ll talk with him as well to evaluate the situation.
“We’re almost there with Kishna, today he did some good work. He won’t be available on Saturday, but we’d like to see him on the pitch on Thursday.”
