Lazio vs Torino: Recent History
After crashing out of the Europa Conference League, Lazio have been on fire in Serie A, being winning seven out of their last eight league outings. The team have looked electric and maintained their strong defence whilst also finding attacking solutions, even with Ciro Immobile’s injury issues.
Maurizio Sarri’s side sit second in the Serie A table, but cannot count their chickens just yet following the temporary annulment of Juventus’ 15-point deduction, a complicated situation with serious ramifications on the top four race.
For Torino, the season is starting to draw to a close and Ivan Juric’s side sit far away from the European spots, leaving them with little to play for in the final eight games of the campaign.
The Granata have only won once in their last five Serie A matches and have generally struggled to show consistency, leading to some tension between Juric and the club’s management.
Lazio vs Torino: Team News
Lazio cannot count on star striker Immobile, who is still recovering following his involvement in a car crash last Sunday. Matias Vecino is also in doubt due to a knee issue, although he could come on in the second half, and Danilo Cataldi is unavailable due to a yellow card suspension.
Torino are in the midst of a slight injury crisis and cannot count on David Zima, Ola Aina, Samuele Ricci, Pietro Pellegri and Ronaldo Vieira.
Expected Starting Lineups
Marcos Antonio is expected to start in place of the suspended Cataldi for Lazio, who otherwise are continuing to rely on the regular core of stars like Mattia Zaccagni, Felipe Anderson, Luis Alberto and Alessio Romagnoli. Elseid Hysaj will start on the right side of the defence, leaving Manuel Lazzari on the bench.
Torino are not expected to put any surprises in their starting lineup, using players like Ivan Ilic, Perr Schuurs, Aleksej Miranchuk and Antonio Sanabria.
Lazio (4-3-3): Provedel; Hysaj, Casale, Romagnoli, Marusic; Milinkovic-Savic, Marcos Antonio, Luis Alberto; Felipe Anderson, Pedro, Zaccagni.
