Today, at 1:00 pm EST, Lazio will take on Udinese at the Stadio Olimpico. A makeup match, the Biancocelesti must win these three available points as they try to keep in the race for a UEFA Champions League spot; with victory, they will be just three points behind fourth-place Milan (but still one point behind Atalanta in the sixth spot and two points behind Derby rivals Roma in the fifth spot). Taking a look at the starting line-up, with Luis Alberto on a one-match ban and Joaquin Correa out with a calf injury, Marco Parolo will return to the center of the park for Lazio – alongside Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Lucas Leiva – while Felipe Caicedo will lead the attack with Ciro Immobile. On the flanks, Senad Lulic will take his usual spot, with Romulo being preferred over Marusic on the right. In defense, the irreplaceable Francesco Acerbi will start on the left, with Luiz Felipe (ahead of Bastos and Stefan Radu) central and Birthday boy Patric on the right. In goal, the usual Thomas Strakosha.
