Missing Players and team news:
Lazio wing-back Manuel Lazzari remains out with a calf injury sustained in the loss at Bologna, while injured defenders Luiz Felipe and Stefan Radu are both long-term absentees. Experienced Bosnian international Senad Lulic could keep his spot at right wing-back, even though Patric is fit and available to feature. Striker Ciro Immobile, who is set to start, is just one goal away from scoring his 150th in Serie A and could also become the second player in Lazio’s history to score at least 15 goals in five consecutive top-flight campaigns, after Giuseppe Signori between 1992 and 1997. For Crotone, Ahmad Benali (thigh), Luca Cigarini (knee) and Milos Vulic (muscle) are all ruled out through injury, although Koffi Djidji is fit and in contention to play. Forward Simy, who is the club’s top goalscorer with 10 Serie A goals this season, is set to start up front once again with either Samuel Di Carmine or Ounas.
