Line-ups: Lazio-Fiorentina

After a chaotic week in which he resigned and changed his mind, Edy Reja leads Lazio out against Fiorentina this evening.

The last few days have been traumatic for the Biancocelesti, as their Coach submitted his written resignation on Wednesday just hours before a Europa League visit to Atletico Madrid.

He was in the balance waiting for a replacement until Saturday afternoon, when Reja held a press conference confirming he had agreed to stay on.

He has huge problems picking a line-up for tonight, though, as Andre Dias and Francelino Matuzalem are suspended.

Tommaso Rocchi, Cristian Brocchi, Marius Stankevicius and Lorik Cana also miss out due to injury.

Miroslav Klose returns after he was rested in Europe and is supported by a trident of Stefano Mauri, Hernanes and Senad Lulic.

Fiorentina have their own issues to contend with, as Ruben Olivera, Mattia Cassani and Alessandro Gamberini all sit out bans.

Amauri is on the injury list along with Per Kroldrup and Houssine Kharja, so Adem Ljajic is the partner for Stevan Jovetic in attack.

Lazio: Marchetti; Scaloni, Biava, Diakitè, Garrido; Ledesma, Gonzalez; Mauri, Hernanes, Lulic; Klose

Lazio bench: Bizzarri, Sbraga, Kozak, Alfaro, Zampa, Zauri, Candreva

Fiorentina: Boruc; De Silvestri, Natali, Nastasic, Pasqual; Romulo, Montolivo, Behrami, Lazzari; Jovetic, Ljajic

Fiorentina bench: Neto, Vargas, Cerci, Salifu, Felipe, Camporese, Marchionni
