Line-ups: Chievo-Lazio

Lazio begin life without Hernanes and do so with a tricky visit to Chievo.

It kicks off at the Stadio Bentegodi in Verona at 14.00 GMT, click here for a match preview.

It has been a traumatic week for the Biancocelesti, who sold Hernanes to Inter for a reported €20m on deadline day.

To make matters worse, Coach Edy Reja revealed 10 different players – including Juventus benchwarmer Sebastian Giovinco – turned down the chance to join Lazio.

Michael Ciani, Abdoulay Konko, Ederson and deadline day signing Helder Postiga are injured, while Stefano Mauri continues his Calcioscommesse ban.

Federico Marchetti is again on the bench, as he continues to claim he doesn’t feel at 100 per cent after a stomach bug.

Antonio Candreva completes the trident with Miroslav Klose and Keita Balde in what appears to be a 3-4-3 formation.

Chievo have brought in Paredes, Victor Obinna and Michael Agazzi, but none of them start today.

Chievo: Puggioni, Frey, Dainelli, Cesar, Sardo; Bentivoglio, Rigoni, Hetemaj, Dramé; Paloschi, Thereau

Lazio: Berisha; Biava, Dias, Radu; Cavanda, Biglia, Ledesma, Lulic; Candreva, Klose, Keita
