Lazio aim to keep hold of the Serie A leadership by visiting Chievo in the lunchtime kick-off, but are forced into changes in defence.
The Biancocelesti have won their last six consecutive official fixtures, including all four under new Coach Vladimir Petkovic.
They begin Sunday’s Serie A action at the Stadio Bentegodi at 11.30am UK time, 12.30pm local. You can watch the game LIVE on your PC.
Petkovic has to make changes, as Senad Lulic is only fit for the bench after picking up an injury during training, while Stefan Radu, Cristian Brocchi and Modibo Diakitè are all out.
This means Pedro Luis Cavanda gets his first Serie A start in nine months, while Miroslav Klose leads the attack, resting Mauro Zarate for Thursday’s Europa League trip to Tottenham.
Chievo hope to cause an upset over lunch with Cyril Thereau, David Di Michele and Sergio Pellissier ready to strike on the counter.
Jokic got the nod at left-back ahead of Nicolas Frey, while Alberto Paloschi continues his long-term injury lay-off.
Chievo: Sorrentino; Sardo, Dainelli, Cesar, Jokic; Luciano, L Rigoni, Hetemaj; Thereau; Di Michele, Pellissier
Chievo bench: Puggioni, Andreolli, Viotti, Frey, Papp, Vacek, M Rigoni, Guana, Cruzado, Samassa, Moscardelli, Stoian
