KICK off: 24 January 19:00
Information: Simone Inzaghi has received mixed news on the injury front, as Mohamed Fares and Joaquin Correa safely returned to action in midweek, but key midfielder Luis Alberto (appendicitis) and centre-back Luiz Felipe – with an ankle injury that will reportedly sideline him for several months – are ruled out for Lazio. Danilo Cataldi is still unavailable too, so Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro should join Lucas Leiva and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in midfield, with Correa set to start alongside regular partner Ciro Immobile up front. Sassuolo are without the suspended Vlad Chiriches, as well as fellow centre-back Filippo Romagna who is a long-term absentee, so Marlon is expected to come into Roberto De Zerbi’s defence. Both Domenico Berardi and Mehdi Bourabia have thigh injuries, while winger Jeremie Boga and midfield regulator Maxime Lopez are doubtful. In Berardi’s absence, Francesco Caputo should be backed up by Gregoire Defrel and Hamed Traore in attack. Lazio possible starting lineup: Reina; Radu, Patric, Acerbi; Lazzari, Milinkovic-Savic, Leiva, Akpa-Akpro, Marusic; Correa, Immobile Sassuolo possible starting lineup: Consigli; Toljan, Marlon, Ferrari, Rogerio; Magnanelli, Obiang; Defrel, Djuricic, Traore; Caputo
