Klose misses Madrid trip

Lazio have left Miroslav Klose out of their already-decimated squad to face Atletico Madrid in the Europa League.

The Biancocelesti have a mountain to climb in Spain on Thursday, as they lost the first leg 3-1 at the Stadio Olimpico.

Perhaps with this in mind, Edy Reja has opted to rest Klose so he can fully recover from a sore back, bringing only Libor Kozak and youth team player Antonio Rozzi in attack.

They are already missing Tommaso Rocchi, Cristian Brocchi, Lorik Cana, Giuseppe Biava and Marius Stankevicius.

Lazio squad:Berardi, Bizzarri, Marchetti; Diakitè, Dias, Konko, Lulic, Zauri, Barluzzi, Fagioli, Serpieri; Candreva, Gonzalez, Hernanes, Ledesma, Matuzalem, Mauri, Zampa; Kozak, Rozzi
