NEWS UPDATE : Prior to the Sassuolo match, Lazio is worried about the fitness of a first-team star.

Ivan Provedel, the Lazio goalkeeper, reportedly has a deadline to meet in order to be available for the upcoming match against Sassuolo.

The 29-year-old goalkeeper sustained a pelvic hematoma during the Champions League match against Celtic, according to Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24). .

Provedel has been a lone bright spot in Lazio’s otherwise lackluster start to the new season.

The ex-Spezia player has appeared in each of the ten Biancocelesti games in all competitions.

It is understandable that Maurizio Sarri only has one clean sheet to his name so far given his team’s weak defensive position.

Provedel’s dazzling performance for Lazio hasn’t gone unnoticed, though.

The highly regarded goalkeeper has received a long-awaited call-up from Italy coach Luciano Spalletti for the matches against Malta and England in October.

Unfortunately, Provedel had to refuse the summons in order to buy more time to heal from a minor injury issue. .

He has made an immeasurable contribution to the Stadio Olimpico, which explains the tensions in the Lazio camp before their Serie A match against Sassuolo.

For the first time since finishing his loan arrival from Salernitana in the summer, Provedel’s second fiddle, Luigi Sepe, will man the goalies if Provedel is unable to recover in time.
