Petkovic forced into changes

Lazio boss Vladimir Petkovic has conceded he will have to bring in a host of changes for the team's match against Torino tomorrow.

The capital club host Giampiero Ventura's men on Wednesday looking to bounce back from the 2-0 loss to Fiorentina at the weekend.

But the Bosniain Coach has admitted that he will have to make a number of alterations to his starting XI after a suspension for Hernanes and injuries to Federico Marchetti and Ederson.

“It will be a different Lazio,” he told a Press conference. “Absences in the squad have deprived us of keeping a settled team, but it is important that we deal with it as a collective.

“Players have to use this chance against a tough opponent. I expect Torino to come to us and try to dispel any rumours of a crisis. We cannot afford to give their 4-2-4 formation any space to manoeuvre.

“We analysed the game against Fiorentina with the lads yesterday. Now is the time to see what went well and what could be improved.”
