Serie A Preview | Verona vs. Lazio: All-new defence for Sarri

by | Oct 22, 2021 21:22

Lazio are forced to completely reshuffle their defence and will be fatigued from the Europa League as they visit attack-minded Hellas Verona.

Maurizio Sarri is winning some big Serie A games against Roma and Inter, but consistency is a real issue, especially here with both Francesco Acerbi and Luiz Felipe suspended. Luis Alberto could also be dropped for the third game in a row, after the coach said he cannot play alongside Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

Verona are smarting after fumbling a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 against Milan at San Siro last week. Giovanni Simeone and Nikola Kalinic are battling for the starting spot as centre-forward, supported by Gianluca Caprari and Antonin Barak.
