Lazio vs Torino: Match Preview, Expected Lineups, Team News

By Apollo Heyes -

Lazio will look to keep up the pressure on 5th place Roma as they host an inconsistent Torino side in the 33rd weekend of the Serie A season.

The Biancocelesti have been looking strong following the recent international break, winning their last two matches against Genoa and Sassuolo confidently. Torino, on the other hand, have only won one of their last 10 Serie A outings and have little to play for at this stage of the season, sitting 11th in the table.

The match between Lazio and Torino kicks off at 20.45 local time on Saturday at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

Lazio vs Torino: Team News

Lazio seem to be at the strongest point of the entire season, with the only physical concern being the doubts surrounding Pedro, who is suffering from a slight muscle strain. No other players are injured or suspended, giving Maurizio Sarri a number of options for the match.

Things are not the same for Ivan Juric; Torino currently have six players out with injury, with another in doubt due to a knee issue. Simone Zaza, Antonio Sanabria, Magnus Warming, Mohamed Fares, Dennis Praet and Rolando Mandragora are all unavailable and Pietro Pellegri is also in doubt.

Expected Starting Lineups

Sarri is expected to pick a full strength side for Lazio vs Torino, desperate for a win as the Biancocelesti look to pip intercity rivals Roma to 5th in the table. The biggest doubt surrounds Patric, who could be dropped in place of Luiz Felipe.

Juric has to navigate stormy waters with a heavily reduced squad, although key figures like Andrea Belotti, Gleison Bremer and Josip Brekalo are all set to start at the Stadio Olimpico.

Lazio (4-3-3): Strakosha; Marusic, Acerbi, Patric, Lazzari; Luis Alberto, Lucas Leiva, Milinkovic-Savic; Zaccagni, Immobile, Felipe Anderson.

Torino (3-4-2-1): Berisha; Izzo, Bremer, Rodriguez; Scingo, Ricci, Luci, Vojvoda; Pobega, Brekalo; Belotti.
