Alessio Romagnoli could very well star in Lazio’s visit to San Siro to face Milan, although the defender’s presence will largely depend on Maurizio Sarri’s call. Romagnoli clashed with Duvan Zapata in the first half against Torino but was only diagnosed later with a fractured nose in X-ray tests at the Paideia International Hospital.
As the club announced, a compound fracture to the nasal bone was detected during the diagnostic tests, and Romagnoli is currently under clinical monitoring. Nevertheless, he is in line to appear with a protective mask, although more details will only be known nearing kick-off.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Romagnoli resumed training on the final day before the match in Milan, as deemed appropriate by the Biancocelesti doctors, who have prescribed a protective silicon mask to be worn in the next sessions and matches to shield him from impacts. Dr. Leonardo Giulani, the head orthopedic specialist, has been granted the responsibility – he has already ‘masked’ Pedro last year.
Despite all the gear being assigned, it ultimately depends on Sarri to evaluate the circumstances under which Romagnoli could play tomorrow. The once-Milan captain led the Rossoneri to their last Scudetto two seasons ago.
