The starting lineups for today’s Serie A clash between Marco Baroni’s Lecce and Maurizio Sarri’s Lazio have been announced.
The Biancocelesti enter 2023 in the top four spots and they’ll be keen to snatch all three points on the road as they look to kick off the new year in the best possible fashion. Lecce had a difficult start to their season and currently sit 16th in the table, so an upset win for the Puglian side could give them vital points in a possible relegation battle.
Lazio are without the injured Mario Gila and Luis Alberto, both of whom may return in time for their next game against Empoli on 8th January. Lecce cannot count on Kastriot Dermaku and Kristjan Bistrovic, who are both sidelined with injuries.
Sarri has deployed a strong Biancocelesti squad, putting stars like Ciro Immobile, Mattia Zaccagni and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in his starting lineup. Toma Basic has also been handed a start in midfield, leaving Matias Vecino on the bench.
Starting lineups for Lecce vs Lazio
Lecce (4-3-3): Falcone; Gendrey, Baschirotto, Umtiti, Gallo; Gonzalez, Hjulmand, Blin; Strefezza, Colombo, Banda.
Lazio (4-3-3): Provedel; Lazzari, Casale, Romagnoli, Marusic; Milinkovic, Cataldi, Basic; Pedro, Immobile, Zaccagni.
