Lavezzi, along with teammate Edinson Cavani, has been suspended for the next two matches for returning late from a holiday break and missing a training camp in Morocco, the BBC reports.

Lavezzi has had trouble getting consistent playing time this season when both Cavani and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are fit, and skipping a training camp to spend more time with his family at home surely won't win him any more minutes. Ibrahimovic will lead the line in their absences, possibly joined by Jean-Cristophe Bahebeck.

Lavezzi was credited with the assist on Paris Saint-Germain's first goal Tuesday in the squad's 3-1 Champions League victory over Ajax.

Tuesday was Lavezzi's second start in the group stages of Champions League play since returning from a hamstring injury and he responded nicely.

Lavezzi will be sidelined for up to three weeks after suffering a right hamstring tear during PSG's Ligue 1 match against Caen last Wednesday.

Lavezzi could have been headed for more playing time with Zlatan Ibrahimovic sidelined with a heel injury, but now he'll be sidelined himself at least through the international break. Lavezzi is still looking for his first goal of the season, as he's disappointingly taken just one shot in five league matches thus far.

Lavezzi could be inserted into the starting XI in place of Sergio Aguero (thigh) for Argentina's round of 16 match against Switzerland at the World Cup on Tuesday, ESPN FC reports.

Lavezzi has been a solid contributor for Argentina and could really benefit from more playing time with Lionel Messi and Gonzalo Higuain. Aguero could be out for the entire World Cup with his latest issue, leaving Lavezzi with plenty of fantasy value potential from here on out.

Lavezzi came on in the 77th minute and then assisted on Lionel Messi's game-winner one minute into stoppage time during Argentina's 1-0 win over Iran in the World Cup on Saturday.

The assist was quite generous, as Lavezzi was simply the last pass to Messi before he dribbled for a number of steps and unleashed a shot that found the back of the net with only minutes to spare. Argentina clinched a spot in the knockout stage with the win, and can wrap up the top spot in the group with a result against Nigeria on Wednesday.

Lavezzi bagged two goals Saturday, when PSG defeated Bastia 3-0.

Lavezzi has been in great form of late, evidenced by four goals in his past four league games. With that, the Argentine is doing his best to hold down a starting position even with Edinson Cavani back healthy.

Lavezzi bagged a goal in PSG's 4-2 win on Sunday.

Lavezzi has now scored in consecutive league matches for PSG. With teammate Edinson Cavani (thigh) out, Lavezzi is making the most of increased playing time up front for the Parisians.

Lavezzi notched a 41st minute goal in Saturday's win over Ajaccio.

Lavezzi finished from very close range to score PSG's first goal of Saturday's game. The Argentine now has three goals to his name through 15 league appearances (11 starts) this season.
