Lazio’s Probable Starting Lineup vs Juventus: Pedro as False Nine, Zaccagni In

By Apollo Heyes -

Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri is set to deploy Pedro as a false nine in the upcoming match against Juventus.

As reported by Italian media outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi earlier today, star striker Ciro Immobile will start on the bench as he is still recovering from a calf injury, forcing Sarri to deploy Pedro as a false nine, slotting in Mattia Zaccagni in the vacant position.

Below is Lazio’s probable starting lineup for the match against Juventus:

Lazio (4-3-3): Pepe Reina; Manuel Lazzari, Luiz Felipe, Francesco Acerbi, Elseid Hysaj; Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Danilo Cataldi, Luis Alberto; Felipe Anderson, Pedro, Mattia Zaccagni.

Lazio Coach Sarri Has Lost More Than Half of His Previous Matches vs Juventus

Adam Marusic is unavailable for the game after testing positive for Covid-19 last week. He is currently isolating in Rome.

Pedro suffered a slight ankle injury this week but is seemingly fit enough to start against the Bianconeri on Saturday, allowing Sarri to leave unconvincing backup striker Vedat Muriqi on the bench.
