The starting lineups for this evening’s Serie A clash between Roberto D’Aversa’s Lecce and Maurizio Sarri’s Lazio have been announced.
Recent History & Form
Lecce sold club captain Morten Hjulmand to Sporting CP earlier this summer but permanently signed last season loanees Youssef Maleh and Wladimiro Falcone, as well as picking up Nikola Krstovic. They beat Padova 4-0 and drew 1-1 with Cadiz in their pre-season friendlies.
Lazio lost star midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic this summer but have picked up five reinforcements – Valentin Castellanos, Daichi Kamada, Gustav Isaksen, Luca Pellegrini and Nicolo Rovella.
The Biancocelesti struggled to impress in the pre-season, losing to Girona and Aston Villa, only finding success against teams from lower divisions like Trieste and NK Bravo.
