Lazio’s team doctor assures Federico Marchetti has not broken a cheekbone, but suffered “cuts and bruises”.
The goalkeeper had to be substituted in yesterday’s win over Frosinone, with fears he may have broken a bone.
“Marchetti had a cut and bruised cheekbone, which was sutured immediately with five stitches,” Roberto Bianchini told Lazio Style Radio.
“However, further examinations were needed, which fortunately showed no fracture. He is therefore only cut and bruised.”
