Coppa line-ups: Lazio-Juventus

Miroslav Klose leads the charge as Lazio host Juventus in tonight’s Coppa Italia semi-final second leg.

The first leg ended 1-1 in Turin, so the Bianconeri must score to have any hope of going through to the Final. It kicks off at 19.45 GMT.

Andrea Pirlo returned to the squad after several games out with a calf problem, but is not risked from the start at the Stadio Olimpico.

German striker Klose has not featured since January 13 due to a left thigh injury, but resumed full training yesterday and is thrown into the starting XI.

As ever in the Coppa Italia, Marco Storari is first choice goalkeeper rather than Gianluigi Buffon.

Sebastian Giovinco partners Mirko Vucinic, while Paul Pogba and Claudio Marchisio are rested in favour of Simone Padoin and Emanuele Giaccherini.

Lazio: Marchetti; Konko, Biava, Ciani, Dias; Radu, Hernanes, Ledesma, Mauri, Gonzalez; Klose

Lazio bench: Bizzarri, Carrizo, Zauri, Cavanda, Stankevicius, Lulic, Cana, Brocchi, Candreva, Kozak, Rozzi, Floccari

Juventus:Storari; Barzagli, Marrone, Bonucci; Isla, Giaccherini, Padoin, Peluso, Vidal; Vucinic, Giovinco

Juventus bench: Buffon, Rubinho, Lichtsteiner, Caceres, De Ceglie, Pogba, Pirlo, Marchisio, Quagliarella, Matri
