The starting lineups for today’s Serie A clash between Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta and Maurizio Sarri’s Lazio have been announced.
The Biancocelesti are keen to taste victory again after a slight dip in form but will have to dig deep to pick up a strong result without their talismanic striker Ciro Immobile, who is out with a hamstring injury.
Atalanta remain undefeated and are dreaming of a possible Scudetto bid, sitting hot on the heels of league leaders Napoli. They’ll be hoping to secure all three points as they look to keep up the pressure on Luciano Spalletti’s side.
Lazio’s only absence heading into this match is star striker Immobile, who is unlikely to play again until after the World Cup due to his hamstring issue.
Atalanta will have to do without the injured Rafael Toloi and Davide Zappacosta, and Jose Luis Palomino is still suspended after a failed drug test in the summer.
Atalanta (3-4-1-2): Sportiello; Okoli, Demiral, Scalvini; Soppy, De Roon, Koopmeiners, Hateboer; Pasalic; Lookman, Muriel.
Lazio (4-3-3): Provedel; Lazzari, Casale, Romagnoli, Marusic; Milinkovic-Savic, Cataldi, Vecino; Pedro, Felipe Anderson, Zaccagni.
