To make the match against Barcelona on Saturday, Captain Lorenzo Insigne from Napoli is battling against the clock, as tests revealed an injury to the ‘long left adductor tendon.’
As Insigne picked up an adductor injury and would be tested regularly before the Champions League big game, the medical report by the Partenopei came back with bad news after last weekend’s 3-1 victory over Lazio.
After 84 minutes Eljif Elmas substituted Insigne, who scored from the penalty spot at the San Paolo in the 54th minute, and the medical test results were not positive.
“Lorenzo Insigne, injured in the final minutes against Lazio on Saturday, underwent instrumental examinations today, which highlighted an injury to the left long adductor tendon, with bone edema,” the club wrote in a statement.
“His condition will be assessed day by day.”
