Line-ups: Panathinaikos-Lazio

Lazio make relatively few changes as they visit Panathinaikos in the Europa League, kicking off at 18.00 BST in Athens.

Vladimir Petkovic has achieved great things with the team so far this season, flying high in Serie A and Europe.

They currently top Group J with four points ahead of Maribor on three, Tottenham with two and Panathinaikos only one.

Miroslav Klose is rested along with Giuseppe Biava and Senad Lulic, while Federico Marchetti is injured, but there is no wholesale squad rotation.

Stars such as Antonio Candreva, Hernanes, Alvaro Gonzalez and Stefano Mauri still start, but support centre-forward Sergio Floccari instead of Klose or Libor Kozak.

Panathinaikos must do without the injured Jean-Alain Boumsong and Sebastian Leto, while Charis Mavrias and Quincy Owusu-Abeyie are only fit for the bench.

The responsibility for the front line goes to Uruguayan hitman Bruno Fornaroli.

Panathinaikos: Karnezis; Seitaridis, André Pinto, Velazquez, Spyropoulos; Zeca, Vitolo, Fourlanos; Christodoulopoulos, Fornaroli, Ibrahim Sissoko

Panathinaikos bench: Kapino, Chouchoumis, Mavrias, Lagos, Marinos, Toché, Owusu-Abeyie

Lazio: Bizzarri; Konko, Ciani, Dias, Cavanda; Ledesma; Candreva, Hernanes, Gonzalez, Mauri; Floccari

Lazio bench: Scarfagna, Scaloni, Biava, Cana, Onazi, Zarate, Kozak
