Luis Alberto and Luiz Felipe could return for Sevilla; Immobile and Milinkovic-Savic unlikely
Lazio were given Saturday to rest; before training resumes at the club’s Formello training centre on Sunday. Lazio worked hard to overcome Empoli in a dire 1-0 victory on Thursday; keeping up the pressure on the teams fighting for continental qualification and earning themselves a whole week of preparation ahead of next Thursday’s Europa League clash against Sevilla. CittaCeleste.it provided an overview of the situations of several Lazio players, who have been faced with fitness or injury concerns in recent days and weeks; including Luis Alberto, Luiz Felipe, Ciro Immobile and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
As per CittaCeleste, Simone Inzaghi is facing a headache ahead of the Sevilla game. Ciro Immobile and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic are both trying their upmost to recover in time for the Europa League game but the deadline is looming and it is likely to be touch-and-go right up to kick-off, if at all. It is likely that neither will recover in time to play the full match and risking either in the match, especially before they are back to full fitness, risks further damage and more complications.
Luis Alberto and Luiz Felipe, however, bring better news to Laziale. The duo are ready to return to the squad, with Alberto likely to start alongside Joaquin Correa and Felipe Caicedo in the match against his former side.
Despite suffering from fatigue after the clash against Empoli; Romulo, Valon Berisha and Joaquin Correa will all be at Simone Inzaghi’s disposal for the game against Sevilla.
