Ciro Immobile is in Lazio’s squad to face Empoli in Serie A this evening, but the striker is not expected to take part.
Lazionews.eu writes that despite his inclusion in the squad, alongside fellow attacker Luis Alberto, Immobile is still struggling with a muscle problem.
Consequently he should remain a substitute for the visit of Empoli, although the website believes having their top goalscorer around will give the Aquile a ‘psychological’ edge.
Romulo is also in line to make his Lazio debut, having been selected for the first time since his deadline-day arrival from Genoa last month.
Lazio squad for Empoli: Guerrieri, Proto, Strakosha; Acerbi, Bastos, Durmisi, Kalaj, Luiz Felipe, Marusic, Patric, Radu, Romulo, Zitelli; Badelj, Berisha, Cataldi, Jordao, Leiva, Luis Alberto, Lulic, Milinkovic; Caicedo, Correa, Immobile, Neto
