Lazio will have to play seven matches in three weeks following the end of this international break.
As highlighted by Italian media outlet LazioNews24 last night, the Biancocelesti will have an incredibly packed schedule as they play every 3-4 days, bouncing between Serie A and Europa League commitments.
Below is Lazio’s schedule for the coming weeks:
- Serie A – Saturday 16 October, 18:00: Lazio vs Inter
- Europa League – Thursday 21 October, 18:45: Lazio vs Olympique de Marseille
- Serie A – Sunday 24 October, 15:00: Hellas Verona vs Lazio
- Serie A – Wednesday 27 October at 20:45: Lazio vs Fiorentina
- Serie A – Saturday 30 October, 15:00: Atalanta vs Lazio
- Europa League – Thursday 4 November, 21:00: Olympique de Marseille vs Lazio
- Serie A – Sunday 7 November, 18:00: Lazio vs Salernitana
Coach Maurizio Sarri will have to rotate the squad consistently in this period in order to ensure that certain players are not overworked, giving opportunities to those who have fallen down in the pecking order, like defender Stefan Radu.
The Roman club are looking to be competitive in both the league and Europa League, finishing in the top four in the former and reaching at least the knockout stages of the latter.
