Keita left out of Lazio squad

Felipe Anderson is in the Lazio squad for the Italian Super Cup against Juventus, but Keita Balde Diao is left out completely.

It kicks off at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT).

There were some injury concerns around Felipe Anderson and he remains a huge doubt to feature, but is in the side.

However, Keita is nowhere to be seen in the list of players presented by Coach Simone Inzaghi.

Officially this is due to a muscular issue, but it is well known that Keita has put in a transfer request and wants to join Juve.

“There are rumours around Keita and I will observe everything,” said Inzaghi in today’s Press conference.

“In my mind, players need to give 100 per cent. If I can see that in Keita, then he’ll play, otherwise I’ll look to someone else.”

Lazio squad for Juventus: Guerrieri, Strakosha, Vargic; Basta, De Vrij, Hoedt, Luiz Felipe, Lukaku, Marusic, Patric, Radu, Wallace; Di Gennaro, Felipe Anderson, Leiva, Luis Alberto, Lulic, Milinkovic, Murgia, Parolo; Caicedo, Immobile, Palombi
