Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha is likely to start in tomorrow’s Europa League clash against Lokomotiv Moscow.

As reported by Italian newspaper Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 26-year-old Albanian shot-stopper is clearly the number two goalkeeper in the squad under coach Maurizio Sarri, with Spanish veteran Pepe Reina the number one choice.

Strakosha’s solitary appearance this campaign came in the Europa League opener against Galatasaray, where he made a calamitous error that gifted the Turkish side the win.

Despite this mistake, both the fans and his teammates have showered him in support and now Sarri is set to start Strakosha in Lazio’s next Europa League commitment tomorrow evening.

The 26-year-old Strakosha, who has been with the Biancocelesti since 2012, has a contract expiring next year in 2022 and so far a renewal doesn’t seem likely, although the recent outpouring of support may convince the player of the love there is for him in Rome.
