The Biancocelesti spent the last few days locked in a training retreat to better prepare for this test, after their 4-1 defeat at Hellas Verona.

Maurizio Sarri insists it is an issue of mentality rather than fatigue, as they go from wins over Roma and Inter to heavy losses with Bologna and Verona.

Luis Alberto starts with Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Danilo Cataldi in the middle of the park. The big boost is the return of Francesco Acerbi and Luiz Felipe from suspension.

Fiorentina crushed Cagliari 3-0 at the weekend, but Nico Gonzalez tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday.

Bartlomiej Dragowski is also still injured in goal, so Riccardo Sottil is back from his ban to complete the trident with Dusan Vlahovic and José Maria Callejon.

Both Sarri and Vincenzo Italiano play 4-3-3, so this could be an entertaining match.

Lazio: Reina; Lazzari, Acerbi, Luiz Felipe, Marusic; Milinkovic-Savic, Cataldi, Basic; Felipe Anderson, Immobile, Pedro

Fiorentina: Terracciano; Venuti, Milenkovic, Martinez-Quarta, Biraghi; Castrovilli, Torreira, Duncan; Callejon, Vlahovic, Sottil
