Line-ups: Lecce v Lazio

Ciro Immobile and Felipe Caicedo return for Lazio, as they try to keep their Scudetto hopes alive against relegation strugglers Lecce.

It kicks off at 18.30 UK time (17.30 GMT), you can follow all the build-up and action as it happens from this game and Milan-Juventus on the LIVEBLOG.

The Aquile saw their title hopes shattered by a 3-0 home defeat to Milan on Saturday, but the Rossoneri take on Juve tonight and could well return the favour, so it’s not worth giving up yet.

Immobile and Caicedo were suspended against Milan, so both return to the starting XI, but Sergej Milinkovic-Savic misses out after a knock.

Joaquin Correa, Senad Lulic and Adam Marusic are out injured.

Lecce have lost six Serie A games in a row and could make it seven for the first time since February 1998.

The problem is their defence, conceding 70 goals in 30 matches this season, but they are still only two points off Genoa and the safety zone.

Panagiotis Tachtsidis is suspended, with Gianluca Lapadula, Luca Rossettini and Biagio Meccariello out of action.

Riccardo Saponara, Antonin Barak, Filippo Falco and Khouma Babacar are available from the start, which should boost their creativity.

It’s a special game for the coaches, as Fabio Liverani and Simone Inzaghi were teammates at Lazio.

Lecce: Gabriel; Donati, Lucioni, Paz, Calderoni; Barak, Petriccione, Mancosu; Falco, Saponara; Babacar

Lazio: Strakosha; Patric, Acerbi, Radu; Lazzari, Parolo, Leiva, Luis Alberto, Jony; Caicedo, Immobile
