Lazio’s probable starting lineup for their UEFA Europa League opener against Galatasaray includes Mattia Zaccagni and Toma Basic.
As reported by Italian media outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi earlier today, coach Maurizio Sarri is looking to rotate the squad around a little for Thursday’s match against the Turkish side, deploying new signings Zaccagni and Basic from the outset.
Lazio (4-3-3): Thomas Strakosha; Manuel Lazzari, Patric, Francesco Acerbi, Stefan Radu; Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Gonzalo Escalante, Toma Basic; Pedro, Vedat Muriqi, Mattia Zaccagni.
- On the bench: Pepe Reina, Adam Marusic, Luiz Felipe, Elseid Hysaj, Jean-Daniel Akpa Akpro, Danilo Cataldi, Lucas Leiva, Luis Alberto, Ciro Immobile, Raul Moro, Luka Romero, Felipe Anderson.
The Biancocelesti’s next league game is against Cagliari on Sunday evening in Rome, only giving the squad a few days turn-around before their next commitment. They then play Torino on September 23 (Thursday), so squad rotation is essential to keep players fit and energized.
