Lazio midfielder Luis Alberto could become the first number 10 to score in the newly renamed Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

Luis Alberto has made 18 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1182 minutes. In that time, he has scored two goals and provided four assists, taking a little time to adapt to coach Maurizio Sarri‘s system.
