Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri could start Lucas Leiva alongside Patric in the centre of the defence against Hellas Verona.
As reported by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 62-year-old Italian coach is without both his first-choice centre backs – Luiz Felipe and Francesco Acerbi – due to suspensions, and so is forced to switch things around a little against the Gialloblu.
The only player that Sarri will surely start against Hellas Verona tomorrow is Patric, and whilst it had seemed likely that he would deploy Stefan Radu alongside him, he is also considering the surprise inclusion of Leiva.
Danilo Cataldi would then start in the midfield three in front of the defence.
The Lazio coach has around 24 hours to decide what his squad will look like for tomorrow’s match against Hellas Verona.
