Lazio’s starting lineup for tonight’s Serie A clash against Juventus has been officially announced.
As seen in a post on Lazio’s Twitter page earlier today, coach Maurizio Sarri has decided to place his trust in Pedro to lead the attack this evening, playing as a false nine. Mattia Zaccagni has been brought in to fill the void left on the wing.
- 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.
Star striker Ciro Immobile was not even called up for tonight’s match, remaining on the sidelines after suffering a left calf injury last week.
Montenegrin full-back Adam Marusic is also absent after testing positive for Covid-19 last week. He is currently self-isolating in Rome.
A win for Lazio tonight is key if the team want to stay involved in the race for a top-four finish this season.
