Lazio’s probable starting lineup for their upcoming Serie A match against Spezia could look very similar to their season opener against Empoli last weekend.

New arrival Toma Basic is unlikely to immediately start on Saturday afternoon, although there is still a chance that coach Maurizio Sarri will decide to place his bets on the 24-year-old Croatian.

There is also a chance that Brazilian defender Luiz Felipe will start the match from the bench, as he is dealing with muscle issues. He has taken part in squad training this week, although he missed the final training match yesterday.

Lazio will be looking to win in their first home game of the season, an important occasion when fans will finally be allowed to cheer for their squad again in the Stadio Olimpico. The stadium will be limited to 50% capacity.
