Line-ups: Torino-Lazio

Lazio are flying high in Europe and the Coppa Italia, but face a tricky trip to Torino this evening in Serie A.

The Biancocelesti are in the Europa League quarter-finals and Coppa Italia Final, though recent results saw them slide down to joint fifth place.

Vladimir Petkovic has to do without the suspended Hernanes, joining Sergio Floccari, Miroslav Klose, Andre Dias, Abdoulay Konko and Cristian Brocchi on the absentee list.

Libor Kozak therefore leads the way in attack with support from Antonio Candreva and Alejandro Gonzalez.

Torino are without Angelo Ogbonna and the banned Abou Diop, but Alessio Cerci is in the spotlight ahead of his debut senior Italy call-up.

Riccardo Meggiorini, Mario Alberto Santana and Paulo Vitor Barreto complete the front four, leaving Rolando Bianchi on the bench.

Torino: Gillet; Darmian, Glik, Rodriguez, D'Ambrosio; Brighi, Gazzi; Santana, Meggiorini, Barreto, Cerci

Torino bench: Coppola, Masiello, Di Cesare, Vives, Bakic, Caceres, Basha, Jonathas, Birsa, Bianchi

Lazio: Marchetti; Pereirinha, Ciani, Cana, Radu; Candreva, Onazi, Ledesma, Gonzalez, Lulic; Kozak

Lazio bench: Bizzarri, Scarfagna, Biava, Mauri, Hernanes, Ederson, Crecco, Saha, Keita
