Lazio currently finds itself in ninth place on the Serie A table with 18 points. If they want to get back into top-four contention for the UEFA Champions League competition, they’ll need a victory of Napoli, who sits in fifth place with 23 points. 

Ahead of the fixture, manager Simone Inzaghi spoke to the media, where his words were relayed by Italian media outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi. He discussed the availability of some of his players and confirmed some starters for their matchup against Napoli. 

The Biancocelesti will see the return of striker Vedat Muriqi, who has been sidelined with an injury for the past three weeks. The Kosovan international has only appeared in four matches for Lazio this season in Serie A since making his arrival from Fenerbahce.

In defense, nothing is yet to be determined as a decision will be made between Wesley Hoedt and Patric on who will start alongside Stefan Radu and Luiz Felipe. 

Finally, in the midfield, Inzaghi confirmed that Luis Alberto, Sergej Milinković-Savić, and Gonzalo Escalante would start.
