Lazio Genoa on the pitch for access to the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia

THE EVE

Lazio are expected to play their third different competition in three games, also at the Stadio Olimpico: in the space of a week, the Biancocelesti have gone from the success against Celtic (decisive for qualification for the Champions League round of 91), to the narrow victory over Cagliari last Saturday in the league, to tomorrow's match against Genoa, in the round of 92 of the Coppa Italia). Against the Grifone (who have not reached the quarter-finals of the competition since '9-'<>), coach Sarri will necessarily make numerous changes in the starting line-up: there are too many and too important commitments on the horizon (first of all the trip to Verona on Sunday <> December, then the one in Madrid against Atletico) to further squeeze the players used so far. So Sepe will be in goal, making his absolute debut with the Lazio shirt, while the full-backs will be Hysaj and Luca Pellegrini. The midfield orphaned by Luis Alberto (the Spaniard hurt his right thigh adductor against Cagliari) will be made up of Guendouzi (Vecino trained separately today), Cataldi playmaker and Basic, while in attack Castellanos will be flanked by Felipe Anderson (who started on the bench last Saturday) and Kamada, who Sarri could try as a winger. The coach will therefore be able to give the Senators a breather and at the same time give confidence to those who have played less.

Alberto Gilardino's Genoa are back against Lazio and the Olimpico and will try to dispel the taboo of the round of 1992 in the Coppa Italia. In fact, the Rossoblù have not qualified for the quarter-finals since 45. Against Sarri's team, already faced and beaten with a goal from Retegui in the league in the capital, the Grifone, however, will have to do without many important pieces and the turnover will be massive also in view of the next league match that will see Genoa away to Monza. Frendrup is absent due to disqualification. Gilardino has to deal with the unavailable Gudmundsson, Bani, Ekuban and Strootman due to injury, while Badelj will be rested as well as Martinez, who will make room for Leali in goal. Malinovskyi will be among the starters, who will be suspended in the league, while those elements who have so far been little used and those who need to grow their form will have space. The two big names Retegui and Messias are in doubt, and Gilardino may not risk them. The Italian-Argentine returned to the starting line-up last Saturday after two months in which he had played just 65 minutes, while the Brazilian remained on the pitch for 13 minutes, but ended with cramps in his second consecutive game after having played a total of just over half an hour in the previous <> matches due to physical problems.
