A report from il messaggero details the specifics of the upcoming friendly against Triestina, a club recently promoted to Serie C – Group A. Currently the team is valued at a total of €3.20mil (according to transfermarkt.com) with a mostly Italian side, only having 4 foreign players. Triestina were once in the Serie A from 1929-1957, and 1958-1959. However, their last stint in Serie B lasted from 2002-2011, and the past season marked their first time playing professional Italian soccer in about 5 years.
The match is scheduled to begin at 5 pm, il messaggero reports:
“Strakosha will not be present since he is doing a specific workout regime to address back issues with his posture and mobility. Berisha, Durmisi, and Marusic rested yesterday due to simple fatigue. The probable eleven are: Proto, Luiz Felipe, Acerbi, Radu, Lombardi, Parolo, Leiva, Cataldi, Lulic, Alberto, Immobile.”
This will be the first time in the pre-season training that Lazio takes on a fully professional team. Though only a recently promoted Serie C team, Triestina presents a crucial opportunity to ensure there are no major gaping holes left unnoticed in the Eagles’ play. As well as a chance to get a close look at some of the younger talent within Triestina’s squad, specifically Luca Pizzul, should Tare find any interest in them.
