“As far as I am concerned, everyone is in the balance. There are no first choices and no back-ups,” said the Coach in his Press conference.

“Those who play are the ones who will prove during the week that they deserve to by sweating in each training session.”

If Sassuolo are in crisis, then Lazio aren’t in great shape either, coming off two consecutive defeats against Catania and Europa League opponents Ludogorets.

“We prepared this game with various different approaches, so we’ll see how it pans out,” continued Malesani.

“We are ready and I want to see more determination from my players. We’ve got to make more of our chances.

“I believe in our safety and I want to stay here for a long time.”

Sassuolo squad for Lazio: Pegolo, Polito, Pomini; Antei, Ariaudo, Bianco, Cannavaro, Gazzola, Longhi, Mendes, Pucino, Ziegler; Rosi, Biondini, Brighi, Chibsah, Magnanelli, Marrone, Missiroli; Berardi, Farias, Floccari, Floro Flores, Sansone, Zaza
