Line-ups: Lazio - Sporting

Lazio’s last throw of the Europa League dice is against Sporting Lisbon at 18.00 UK time.

The Biancocelesti are currently level on points with Vaslui, but the Romanians have a better head to head record.

This means if Vaslui at least match Lazio’s result in this game, then they will be the ones going through at the expense of the Italians.

Sporting are already qualified and have the likes of ex-Fiorentina striker Valeri Bojinov and former Milan defender Oguchi Onyewu.

Lazio are without numerous stars, including Federico Marchetti and Stefano Mauri, but have fielded a below-strength side led by Libor Kozak.

Lazio: Bizzarri; Cavanda, Diakite, Biava, Lulic; Ledesma, Cana; Cisse, Hernanes, Sculli; Kozak

Lazio bench: Carrizo, Andre Dias, Crescenzi, Gonzalez, Zampa, Rocchi, Klose

Sporting Lisbon: Marcelo; Pereirinha,Tiago Ilori, Onyewu, Evaldo; Andre Martins, Andre Santos, Schaars, Carrillo; Diego Rubio, Bojinov

Sporting Lisbon: Tiago, Daniel Carrico, Insua, Joao Mario, Joao Carlos, Betinho, Ricardo Esgaio
