Irrespective of all the mid-week European madness, Lazio travel north to face Torino in their postponed Serie A clash.

The match between the Granata and the Biancocelesti kicks off at 19.45 UK time at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino in Turin.

This game was originally scheduled for the 21st matchday of the season, but was postponed due to Lazio’s participation in the Supercoppa Italiana in Saudi Arabia last month.

Torino have been in a run of decent form lately under Ivan Juric, losing just one of their last 11 consecutive Serie A outings. The run leaves them just a point behind Maurizio Sarri’s side, giving them hope of European qualification.

The Granata are without Alessandro Buongiorno, Perr Schuurs and Ricardo Rodriguez, all sidelined with injuries.

In the space of four days last week, Lazio beat Bayern Munich 1-0 in an unexpected Champions League upset but then fell to Thiago Motta’s Bologna 2-1, a frustrating result in their fight for a top four finish.

The Biancocelesti are without Patric, Nicolo Rovella and possibly Mattia Zaccagni, reducing Sarri’s options a little.

When these two teams met back in September, Lazio picked up a 2-0 win over Torino after goals from Matias Vecino and Zaccagni.

Probable line-ups for Torino vs Lazio

Torino (3-4-1-2): Milinkovic-Savic, Djidji, Lovato, Masina, Bellanova, Ricci, Ilic, Lazaro, Vlasic, Sanabria, Zapata.

Lazio (4-3-3): Provedel, Lazzari, Gila, Romagnoli, Marusic, Guendouzi, Cataldi, Luis Alberto, Isaksen, Immobile, Felipe Anderson.
