Lazio have been struggling with an injury crisis for several weeks now and it intensified on the eve of this big grudge match.

Immobile was not fully fit due to a muscular problem, played through the pain in Tuesday’s Coppa Italia semi-final draw with Milan, but the issue flared up again this morning.

The striker is not risked from the start, so Felipe Caicedo plays with support from Joaquin Correa and Milinkovic-Savic.

Wallace, Jordan Lukaku and Valon Berisha are all out of action, but Stefan Radu returns, as he was suspended in the Coppa.

Roma’s only remaining injury absentee is Cengiz Under, as Patrik Schick and Rick Karsdorp are back on the bench after lengthy lay-offs.

However, star centre-back Manolas is suffering from a stomach bug and is not ready to play, especially not a few days ahead of the Champions League trip to FC Porto.

Juan Jesus therefore steps in with Federico Fazio, while Alessandro Florenzi is at right-back.

Zaniolo moves to the trident attack with Edin Dzeko and Stephan El Shaarawy, allowing Lorenzo Pellegrini to work with Daniele De Rossi and Bryan Cristante in midfield.

Lazio: Strakosha; Bastos, Acerbi, Radu; Marusic, Milinkovic-Savic, Leiva, Luis Alberto, Lulic; Correa, Caicedo

Lazio bench: Guerrieri, Proto, Luiz Felipe, Patric, Durmisi, Parolo, Immobile, Badelj, Romulo, Pedro Neto, Cataldi, Bruno Jordao

Roma: Olsen; Florenzi, Fazio, Juan Jesus, Kolarov; Cristante, De Rossi, Pellegrini; Zaniolo, Dzeko, El Shaarawy

Roma bench: Mirante, Fuzato, Marcano, Santon, Karsdorp, Coric, Nzonzi, Perotti, Pastore, Kluivert, Schick
