Although the severity of the condition and the estimated recovery period were not disclosed, it is almost certain that the Mexican will be absent in the visit to Granada CF of Spain, next Thursday. The duel corresponds to the first match of the qualifying rounds of the Europa League. In addition, the Neapolitan cadre will visit the Atalanta in Serie A match three days later.

For the eighth consecutive time, Lozano was considered in Gennaro Gattuso’s starting box. In front they had a powerful offensive led by Cristiano Ronaldo and Álvaro Morata. Despite the power, the eleventh of the old lady Italian football could not hurt the goal guarded by Alex Meret.

The meeting began with arrivals in the area of ​​both teams. However, after a strong entry by captain Giorgio Chiellini in the Juventus area, the referee awarded the maximum penalty in favor of Napoli. The person in charge of collecting the shot was Lorenzo Insigne who, with a powerful shot, knocked out Polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczęsny and opened the scoring.

From that moment and until the end of the first half, Gattuso’s squad continued to have arrivals at the rival goal. Nevertheless, for the second half, the Juventus team went to the front in order to overcome the match. In fact, the 11 Napoli players were defending their half court at one point in the game, but the strategy worked for them, as they managed to break the rival’s three-game undefeated.

Despite the result, the overexertion was noticeable in Gattuso’s pupils. At minute 92 of the match, Hirving Lozano suffered a hard sweep from the rival captain on the right wing, so the conditions in his right leg worsened. The match ended with the Mexican unable to support the limb with confidence.

In the next few hours or days the club could announce the seriousness of the injury, as well as the recovery time and the estimated period in which the Mexican could step on the pitch again. The announcement will cause expectation because, unlike last season, now he has the full confidence of his coach, who has recognized his decisive performances in the great performances of the team.

Another of the casualties in the Neapolitan box was that of the archer David ospina, who did not start the match after suffering a contracture in the adductor of the right thigh during the warm-up. However, with victory, the team established itself as the fourth highest ranked in the domestic league.

Although they are two points behind Juventus and have 40 units, like Roma and Lazio, if they stay in that position, they could access the European Champions League in its next edition.
