Everything was going so well for Lazio keeper Federico Marchetti in Monday’s match against Sampdoria. He was working on a clean sheet late in the second half when Alessandro Matri scored to put Lazio up 1–0. Thrilled by this turn of events, Marchetti sprinted out of his area to try and celebrate with his teammates, but something went wrong. Very, very wrong.
It was a hamstring injury that caused him to pull up and call for a substitution, which led to his replacement, Etrit Berisha, getting booked and conceding a free kick during injury time from which Sampdoria would equalize.
According to Football Italia, Lazio’s team doctor says Marchetti will miss three to six weeks.
Meanwhile, Sampdoria owner Massimo Ferrero is still doing weird shit.
