Lazio forward Vedat Muriqi is likely to start in tomorrow’s Europa League clash against Lokomotiv Moscow.
As reported by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, coach Maurizio Sarri will be forced to tinker with his attack a little in tomorrow’s match, with both Pedro and Ciro Immobile suffering from minor issues still.
Pedro has not trained for the last two days and is suffering from back problems, which could possibly stem from the heavy workload he has been under so far during this campaign. This means that he is likely to be rested, same as Lazio star Immobile, who is still working on recovering from his calf injury.
Muriqi, therefore, has another chance to prove himself and show Sarri that he is fully capable of being the 31-year-old Italian striker’s backup, something he has failed to do so far. On the sides of Muriqi will be Italian midfielder Mattia Zaccagni and Brazilian winger Felipe Anderson.
