Inzaghi: 'No Luis Alberto against Napoli'

Lazio boss Simone Inzaghi says Luis Alberto will miss the Coppa Italia game against Napoli. “They have some problems in the league, but they are a great team.”

The Biancocelesti face the Partenopei only 10 days after they last met in Serie A, with an error from Napoli goalkeeper David Ospina costing Rino Gattuso’s side the match.

Inzaghi spoke to Lazio’s official website and says they must be wary of Gattuso’s men.

“We know the opponents that we’ll face tomorrow. Napoli have some problems in the league but they are still a very good team,” said Inzaghi.

“For us the cup represents a lot, and we will go to Napoli and give a great performance and try to advance to the next round.

“Tomorrow I expect an intense game, that will be decided by a few incidents.”

Inzaghi states he will be missing Luis Alberto, and will leave it until tomorrow before naming his starting XI.

“I need more time to assess the recovery of the lads because we are coming off of a big game against Sampdoria.

“For the game tomorrow I will call up the whole squad except for Jordan Lukaku, Adam Marusic and Luis Alberto.”
