This Serie A Week 25 fixture was originally meant to be played on March 2, but had to be postponed because the local health authority ordered the entire Torino squad into lockdown due to a COVID outbreak.

Lazio lost several appeals to have an automatic 3-0 win awarded, because the Granata had followed the COVID protocol, with the precedent set by Juventus-Napoli.

This is a very important game for Torino, who need a point to be sure of their Serie A safety, otherwise it’ll be a head-to-head with Benevento in Sunday’s final round.

Andrea Belotti leads the attack with Sanabria rather than Simone Zaza, with Rolando Mandragora pulling the midfield strings.

The Biancocelesti have Francesco Acerbi suspended, along with Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Joaquin Correa and Felipe Caicedo injured.

That means Vedat Muriqi partners Ciro Immobile upfront, while Jean-Daniel Akpa Akpro steps into the midfield and Luiz Felipe starts in defence.

Lazio: Strakosha; Marusic, Luiz Felipe, Radu; Lazzari, Akpa Akpro, Leiva, Luis Alberto, Fares; Immobile, Muriqi

Torino: Sirigu; Izzo, Nkoulou, Bremer; Singo, Rincon, Mandragora, Lukic, Ansaldi; Sanabria, Belotti
