Probable line-ups: Atalanta-Lazio

Vedat Muriqi seems set to get another chance for Lazio in the Coppa Italia, as Atalanta start with Luis Muriel up front in the quarter-final.

The match at the Gewiss Stadium kicks off at 16.45 UK time.

Atalanta host Lazio in the fight for a place in the semi-finals, in the first out of two consecutive meetings between the two sides.

Gian Piero Gasperini leans on Muriel to deliver the goods for the Orobici, supported by Aleksej Miranchuk and Ruslan Malinovskyi.

Joakim Maehle will be given a chance to shine at right, with Robin Gosens at left in the usual 3-4-2-1 formation.

Only two points separate the sides in Serie A and Simone Inzaghi has one eye on the repeat of the match this weekend, as Ciro Immobile is replaced by Muriqi, who seems set to be paired with Andreas Pereira.

In addition to Immobile, Lazzari should get some rest too. Felipe Caicedo has not been called up and Gonzalo Escalante will replace suspended Lucas Leiva in the middle.

Atalanta (probable): Gollini; Toloi, Romero, Palomino; Maehle, De Roon, Freuler, Gosens; Malinovskyi, Miranchuk; Muriel

Lazio (probable): Reina; Patric, Hoedt, Acerbi; Marusic, Milinkovic-Savic, Escalante, Akpa Akpro, Fares; Pereira, Muriqi

Referee: Pairetto
