Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi is considering starting wing-back Adam Marusic as a centre-back in the three-man defense against Juventus tomorrow.
According to a report from Italian media outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi earlier today, the 44-year-old Italian coach needs to build a back three without Luiz Felipe and Stefan Radu, who are both injured.
With fairly unconvincing performances from Wesley Hoedt and Mateo Musacchio this campaign, Inzaghi is thinking of starting Montenegrin wing-back Marusic as the left-sided centre back against the Bianconeri, alongside Francesco Acerbi and Patric.
With Marusic in defense and Manuel Lazzari out injured, Inzaghi would then deploy Jean-Daniel Akpa Akpro as the right wing-back, with either Mohamed Fares or Senad Lulic starting on the left side.
The 28-year-old Marusic, who is contracted to the Biancocelesti until the end of next season, has made 32 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 2562 minutes. In that time, he has scored one goal and provided five assists.
