Cagliari crisis at Lazio tonight

Cagliari face a tricky trip to Lazio this evening and Ivo Pulga admits he has an injury crisis after losing Mauricio Pinilla and Lorenzo Ariaudo.

The Sardinians were already going to be without the suspended Davide Astori and Francesco Pisano at the Stadio Olimpico

Pinilla pulled out of the match after coming down with laryngitis, while defender Ariaudo has a left thigh problem. Click here for a match preview.

“I am sure whoever takes to the field will do well,” said Coach Pulga.

“We must have the same spirit and sporting aggression shown against Juventus in order to get a result against one of the form teams in Serie A. We will only emerge from this dangerous situation with that attitude.

“The break was very useful for us, as we worked on strengthening aerobically. I am confident. Lazio are solid and concede few goals, but they do let their opponents take the initiative and allow others to play. They will leave spaces and we’ve got to make the most of them.

“Obviously Public Enemy No 1 is Miroslav Klose, a striker who punishes you at the slightest error.”

Cagliari squad for Lazio: Agazzi, AvramovDanilo Avelar, Camilleri, Del Fabro, Murru, Perico, Rossettini; Casarini, Ceppelini, Conti, Cossu, Dessena, Ekdal, Eriksson, Nainggolan; Ibarbo, Nenè, Sau, Thiago Ribeiro
