Lazio’s Hernanes likely to miss rest of season
Lazio playmaker Hernanes is likely to miss the rest of the
season with a thigh injury, dealing a blow to the Serie A club’s
hopes of qualifying for the Champions League.
Hernanes was substituted at halftime in Sunday’s draw with Lecce
and tests Tuesday reveal the Brazilian has a ”first to second
degree tear to his left thigh muscle.”
It is a further blow to Lazio with Christian Brocchi already out
for the run-in and leading striker Miroslav Klose struggling to
recover in time for the last few games.
Lazio is currently third, but just three points ahead of
Udinese, with Napoli and Roma also close behind. Inter Milan is
seventh, six points behind Lazio.
Hernanes has scored eight times this season.
