Lazio have been dealt an untimely blow with the news that Sanchez Emilson Cribari will be ruled out for at least two months through injury.

Cribari suffered from a blow to the head in Lazio's Uefa Champions League qualifier with Dinamo Bucharest, resulting in a fractured cheekbone and a fractured jaw.

The defender will be forced to undergo surgery, and doctors will be made to wait until after the operation to make a final decision on the length of Cribari's lay-off.

Cribari was tipped to feature heavily for coach Delio Rossi in the coming season, and Lazio will undoubtedly feel his absense as they commence their campaign.
