Lazio midfielder Mattia Zaccagni is looking to properly kick off his season in the upcoming match against Juventus.

As reported by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 26-year-old Italian midfielder is set to start on the left in the match against the Bianconeri, with coach Maurizio Sarri moving Pedro into the centre to replace the injured Ciro Immobile.

Before Zaccagni’s recent knee injury, he was dealing with a muscle injury that hampered the start of his season, leaving him a little off the mark.

The Italian midfielder wants to show his best at Lazio and so the upcoming match against Juventus provides the perfect opportunity to impress.

The 26-year-old Zaccagni, who joined on a loan deal with a conditional obligation to buy in the summer, has made six appearances for Lazio so far this season, for a total of 237 minutes. In that time he has shown some positives but has not yet fully imposed himself.
