Serie A Preview | Venezia vs. Lazio: Immobile out again

by | Dec 20, 2021 22:52

Ciro Immobile is out again, this time due to a COVID contact, so Felipe Anderson is again the Lazio False 9 against impressive Venezia.

The striker was out with a stomach bug for the 3-1 win over Genoa and is now ruled out because his wife tested positive for COVID-19, so he is self-isolating. Elseid Hysaj is also struggling with muscular issues, so Stefan Radu could get a rare start to end 2021.

The Lagunari grabbed a late equaliser against Sampdoria after holding Juventus to another 1-1 stalemate, so are making themselves rather tricky to beat.
