Boost for Lazio as Key Duo Set to Return From Injury Against Genoa

Lazio coach Igor Tudor will reportedly have Ciro Immobile and Alessio Romagnoli at his disposal once again against Genoa. The Biancocelesti will travel to Liguria to take on Alberto Gilardino’s men in the opening fixture of Serie A Matchday 33 this Friday.

According to Il Messaggero (via La Lazio Siamo Noi), the Italian duo should be available for selection given the minor nature of their injuries. Immobile picked up a knee problem during the Derby della Capitale defeat at the hands of Roma. His compatriot Romagnoli sustained a calf knock in the aftermath of the same fixture. They both skipped last Friday’s win over Salernitana.

On the other hand, Lazio’s other absentees still require additional time on the treatment table, as the source explains. Ivan Provedel will likely return between the end of April and the start of May. Therefore, the goalkeeper should regain his spot between the posts either against Hellas Verona or Monza.

As for Mattia Zaccagni, a return in next Tuesday’s Coppa Italia clash against Juventus remains an unlikely prospect. The winger picked up a knock following a rough challenge from Federico Gatti in the first leg of the semi-final.

Finally, the Lazio technical staff will be closely monitoring Luca Pellegrini and Taty Castellanos during the week before deciding on their availability against Genoa. The Italian left-back has an ankle problem, while the Argentine striker is suffering from muscle fatigue.
