The starting lineups for this afternoon’s Serie A clash between Paulo Sousa’s Salernitana and Maurizio Sarri’s Lazio have been announced.
Recent History & Form
Salernitana decided to make a change in an attempt to distance themselves from a brewing relegation battle, dismissing coach Davide Nicola and bringing in Paulo Sousa. The 52-year-old Portuguese coach’s first test is against the Biancocelesti and he’ll be hoping for a dream start.
Lazio have not managed a win in their last three Serie A outings and they’ll be keen to return to winning ways following the 1-0 victory over CFR Cluj in the Europa Conference League.
