Feyenoord vs Lazio: Recent History
Lazio had looked solid without talismanic striker Ciro Immobile following his hamstring injury last month, beating Atalanta and FC Midtjylland, but their lethargic 3-1 loss to Salernitana on the weekend will have undoubtedly shaken the team ahead of a vital European clash.
Feyenoord did not play on the weekend, meaning they’ll have had a whole week’s rest after their 1-0 loss to Sturm Graz last week. They currently sit fifth in the Eredivisie table, winning two and drawing two of their last five league games.
Earlier this season, Lazio and Feyenoord faced off in a thrilling match in Rome which ended 4-2 to the home side.
Lazio vs Salernitana: Team News
The only absence for Lazio is star striker Immobile, still sidelined with a hamstring injury. Manuel Lazzari will be able to return to the squad following his suspension last week.
Feyenoord’s only injury is Moroccan winger Oussama Idrissi, who has been out since last month with a hamstring issue.
Expected Starting Lineups
Maurizio Sarri will certainly start Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in the match as the Serbian star is suspended for the upcoming Derby della Capitale. Alessio Romagnoli will likely be rested in place of Mario Gila and Felipe Anderson will again start as a false nine to fill the void left behind by Immobile’s absence.
Feyenoord are expected to deploy an incredibly similar starting 11 to the one that lost 1-0 to Sturm Graz last week, being able to take advantage of the extra rest days.
Feyenoord (4-3-3): Bijlow; Geertruida, Trauner, Hancko, Lopez; Kocku, Szymanski, Timber; Jahankabakhsh, Danilo Pereira, Dilrosun.
Lazio (4-3-3): Provedel; Lazzari, Gila, Patric, Hysaj; Milinkovic, Marcos Antonio, Basic; Cancellieri, Felipe Anderson, Zaccagni.
