Lazio’s starting XI for this afternoon’s Serie A clash against Bologna has been confirmed.

As seen in a post on Lazio’s Twitter page earlier today, star striker Ciro Immobile will not be starting against the Rossoblu today after suffering a thigh muscle injury in the 2-0 win over Lokomotiv Moscow on Thursday. Coach Maurizio Sarri has started Vedat Muriqi in his place.

Serie A Preview: Lazio Hoping Their Positive Run of Form Continues Against Bologna

Lazio’s 3-2 Derby della Capitale win over Roma last weekend has re-energised the team, seen in their Europa League victory on Thursday.

A win against coach Sinisa Mihajlovic’s Bologna today would confirm the good form and a loss could see confidence drop again.

The Lazio squad are slowly adapting to Sarri’s 4-3-3 system and positive signs have been seen in the last few matches.
