Lazio suffer Dias blow

Lazio will be without key defender Andre Dias when they face Palermo this weekend after he picked up a knock in training.

The 31-year-old Brazilian pulled up during a mini-game and complained about the adductor muscle in his left thigh.

There is a fear that Dias will also miss the derby against Roma on March 13.

Lazio have conceded just 23 goals this season and have the second best defence in Serie A.

In the meantime, Dias will be replaced by Guglielmo Stendardo.

Reja to reintegrate Zarate

Edy Reja is considering the reintegration of Mauro Zarate after growing frustrated with the player earlier this season.

Zarate has often been criticised for his selfish style of play and is now a peripheral figure at the club despite his high profile.

However, La Gazzetta dello Sport understands that Reja is thinking about giving the Argentine another chance against Palermo this weekend.

Reja apparently told Zarate: "If you train professionally, you will get your chance on Sunday."

Lazio reward Kozak with new contract

Lazio have reportedly extended Libor Kozak's contract until 2015 after he emerged as their star striker.

The young Czech had been a bench-warmer and ready to leave on loan in the January transfer window.

The club's failure to find a suitable big name replacement prompted him to stay on and Kozak became one of their top scorers.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, Lazio are rewarding him with a new contract extension from 2013 to 2015.

Dias aims for Champions League

Lazio centre-back Andre Dias hopes to be playing in the Champions League next season.

The 31-year-old Brazilian has been excellent this season, but scored a disastrous own-goal against Cagliari on Sunday, which meant his side lost 1-0.

However, Lazio remain in fourth place and are on course to return to the Champions League for the first time since the 2007-08 season.

Reja: 'We deserved a point'

Lazio's Champions League hopes took a dent with their Sardinian defeat, but Edy Reja is not hitting the panic button.

“We put in a very good performance today, it's just that we did not make it count with a goal,” said the Coach.

Their 1-0 loss away to Cagliari was decided by an Andre Dias own goal, while Sergio Floccari hit the woodwork.

“Unfortunately, the result did not reward us with what we deserved, which was at least a draw.

Lazio lose Muslera for three weeks

Lazio will have to do without goalkeeper Fernando Muslera for two to three weeks after he sprained his ankle.

The Uruguayan shot-stopper will be out of action for at least 10 days before undergoing another check-up, announced a club statement.

Muslera was warming up for Sunday's 1-0 win over Bari when he jumped to catch a ball and fell awkwardly on to his ankle.

The two sides that could

Rocco Cammisola on Napoli and Lazio, two sides who are looking good to scale the Serie A mountain this season

Watty Piper's children's story The Little Engine That Could is one of the first I was read as a young boy. If you're unfamiliar with the tale, a long train needs to be pulled up an enormous mountain – a task that the bigger and stronger engines shirk immediately.

Just one small engine offers his services, and he slowly huffs and puffs his way up the mountain. On his way up the hill it chants the mantra 'I think I can, I think I can' until he really does believe he can, and does.

Reja plays down Napoli success

Lazio boss Edy Reja has played down the success Walter Mazzarri is having with Napoli this season.

The veteran tactician got Napoli back into Serie A after a six-year exile in which they went bankrupt and dropped to the third tier of Italian football.

He was dismissed by Aurelio De Laurentiis in 2009 amid doubts that he could take the team to the next level.

Lazio currently lie fourth in Serie A, just four points behind Napoli who have the look of genuine title contenders.

Reja: 'Too early for Champions race'

Edy Reja thinks “it's too early” to say Lazio are breaking away in the race for a Champions League spot.

“It would be nice, but there are still too many games to go,” said the Coach after a 1-0 win over Bari.

As Udinese were held to a 0-0 draw, while Roma, Juventus and Palermo lost this weekend, the Biancocelesti are four points clear.

“We will enjoy this positive moment. Now the team has got back on track after a period of difficulty.”
