Lazio take on Hellas Verona tonight and there has been various team news emerging from Lazio’s Formello training centre. Spanish defender Patric looks set to start ahead of Bastos; the former Barcelona man having been cleared after a bout of flu. Francesco Acerbi and Stefan Radu look set to accompany the Spaniard in the Lazio defence.

The Lazio midfield looks to be at full strength, with Manuel Lazzari, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Lucas Leiva, Luis Alberto and Senad Lulic all set to start in what Simone Inzaghi considers to be a must win game against a Veronese side who have been performing way above expectations. Marco Parolo and Jony have been considered for the starting XI, having been tested in training, but Milinkovic-Savic and Lulic look to be favourites.

Felipe Caicedo and Ciro Immobile will be leading the pack for Lazio, with Joaquin Correa still injured and destined to return for the clash against Parma.
