Lazio defender Wesley Hoedt is set to make his first league start in almost two months against Genoa on Sunday.

According to a report from Italian media outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi earlier today, the 27-year-old Dutch defender seems to have been given the green light by coach Simone Inzaghi in today’s training session in Formello and is likely to start alongside Stefan Radu and Adam Marusic on Sunday.

Luiz Felipe partially took part in today’s session again today, being involved in the warm-up and some exercises with the ball, before breaking off for individual work before the ball possession exercises.

Inzaghi will have to decide whether to start Senad Lulic or Mohamed Fares on the left, with the Bosnian veteran impressing against AC Milan.

Lucas Leiva was back on the pitch today and is carefully managing his condition, having missed squad training yesterday. Felipe Caicedo missed today’s session as he’s still suffering from plantar fasciitis.
