Marusic is set to return to Rome later today, but it seems unlikely that he will feature in Lazio‘s match against Napoli tomorrow.

Even if he fails to feature in tomorrow’s match against Napoli, his return is still important for coach Maurizio Sarri, who could deploy him next week against Udinese on Thursday.

The 29-year-old Marusic, who is contracted to Lazio until 2022, has made 14 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1007 minutes.
