The starting lineups for this evening’s Europa League clash between Maurizio Sarri’s Lazio and Albert Capellas’ FC Midtjylland have been announced.
All four teams in Group F are tied on four points and could still book their spots in the knock-out stages of the competition, making the final two group games crucial. Lazio were left embarrassed in Denmark the last time they faced Midtjylland, suffering a disastrous 5-1 loss.
Maurizio Sarri cannot count on star striker Ciro Immobile for this evening’s clash, with the Lazio captain out due to a hamstring issue. Midtjylland’s only absence is Brazilian forward Júnior Brumado, who has been sidelined since August with a muscle issue.
Lazio performed well without their skipper on the weekend, securing a thrilling 2-0 win over Atalanta. Midtjylland’s league outing was a little more difficult, only picking up a point in a 1-1 draw with FC Copenhagen, so they’ll be hoping for a better showing against the Biancocelesti.
