Klose rested for Europa League

Lazio have decided to rest derby hero Miroslav Klose for Thursday's Europa League game against FC Zurich.

The German has made a sensational start to life with his new club and netted the winner in Sunday's 2-1 win over city rivals Roma.

Klose was a doubt for that game because of injury and boss Edy Reja has decided to give him a break from competitive action.

The former Bayern Munich man hasn't been included in the squad for tomorrow's game. Midfielders Cristian Brocchi and Stefano Mauri are also missing because of fitness issues.

Lazio squad: Bizzarri, Marchetti, Scarfagna; Biava, Cavanda, Diakitè, Dias, Konko, Lulic, Radu, Zauri; Cana, Gonzalez, Hernanes, Ledesma, Matuzalem; Cisse, Kozak, Rocchi, Sculli.
