Inzaghi unsure over Lazio pair

Lazio boss Simone Inzaghi admits he has doubts over whether Joaquin Correa and Felipe Caicedo will be fit to face Celtic in the Europa League tomorrow.

Caicedo came off injured against Milan last weekend, whilst Correa picked up a knock in training, and Inzaghi states the pair will have to be evaluated.

"I have to evaluate their condition very carefully, but I'll ask them to make sacrifices. I believe in them," he said at a Press conference.

The coach then revealed he had toyed with the idea of using Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Luis Alberto or even youngster Bobby Adekanye in attack.

"I'll play my strongest team. [Ciro] Immobile and [Senad] Lulic were a little tired yesterday, but I'm confident that these two will play.

"I don't have a clear idea yet [of my starting XI], but I know [Stefan] Radu and [Adam] Marusic definitely won't make it. [Danilo] Cataldi is suspended."

The Aquile’s task has been made a tad more difficult by parts of their curva being closed for racist behaviour.

“We’re obliged to win, we want to move up the group but it won’t be easy against a Celtic side who have a lot of quality and players who can put us in trouble at any time.

“I think it’ll be a beautiful day of sport and a beautiful game. May the best team win. Hopefully it’s Lazio.

“I know many Celtic fans will arrive and that part of the [Curva] Nord will be closed, but we expect lots of Biancocelesti to support us anyway.”

Lazio lost 2-1 to Celtic in the first game between the sides last month.
