Luis Alberto Could Feature in Center of Front Three in Lazio vs Porto

By Apollo Heyes -

Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri may move Luis Alberto to the attacking trident for the upcoming match against Porto.

As reported by Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the injury to Ciro Immobile means the Italian coach needs to find an alternate solution up front, and he has a few ideas, such as using Felipe Anderson or Jovane Cabral as a false nine.

Another, more surprising, idea is to deploy Luis Alberto in the middle of Lazio’s front three, giving space for Toma Basic in the midfield.

The next few training sessions will provide clearer insight, but there’s a genuine possibility that Luis Alberto could lead the Biancocelesti’s attack in the second leg of their Europa League play-off clash against Porto.

The Roman club lost the first leg 2-1 in Portugal, so they’ll need to dig deep to find a decisive win in the Stadio Olimpico on Thursday if they want to progress.
