Line-ups: Atalanta-Lazio

Lazio are decimated by injuries and bans for their trip to Atalanta, but welcome back Miroslav Klose to the bench in a last-gasp push for third place.

The Biancocelesti were out clear in the Champions League slot a couple of weeks ago, but have crumbled in recent weeks as the injury crisis took its toll.

Federico Marchetti, Andre Dias, Cristian Ledesma and Giuseppe Biava all sit out bans, while the injury list includes Tommaso Rocchi, Emiliano Alfaro, Hernanes, Stefan Radu, Marius Stankevicius, Francelino Matuzalem and Cristian Brocchi.

Klose returns for his first appearance in the squad since tearing a muscle in his thigh in mid-March, albeit from the bench, as Libor Kozak starts.

Atalanta are safe and seeking a new club record for points scored, but Matteo Brighi, Guido Marilungo, Daniele Capelli, Simone Tiribocchi and goalkeeper Andrea Consigli miss out.
