Soccer: Lazio lose Klose, Gonzalez for four weeks
Both players sidelined by muscle problems08 April, 16:09
Lazio said tests showed Klose had strained a muscle in his left thigh, while Gonzalez had hurt a muscle in his right thigh.
The injuries are a setback to both players' hopes of being part of their national teams' World Cup squads. The sides that finish fourth and fifth in Serie A qualify for the Europa League, but this season the sixth-placed team is likely to qualify as well.
This is because the winner of the Italian Cup also gets a place, but this season's finalists, third-placed Napoli and fourth-placed Fiorentina, are on course to qualify for Europe anyway thanks to their league position. Lazio are seventh in Serie A with six games to go, two points behind sixth-placed Parma.
