Milan: Spain leave out Suso

Spain have called up Pau Lopez, Luis Alberto and Fabian Ruiz for upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers but left out Milan attacker Suso.

Lopez, Fabian and Luis Alberto have been rewarded for their strong starts to the season, the latter earning a recall after five assists in just seven games for Lazio.

However, Suso is omitted after a meagre return of no goals and just the one assist, having struggled in his new position of Milan No 10.

Elsewhere, former Napoli defender Raul Albiol is included after helping Villarreal to three wins in their last four matches.

No substitute for squad depth

Game management and having options off the bench proved decisive in the Europa League for Lazio and Roma, writes Sam Wilson.

Squad rotation is essential in the Europa League, as Lazio turned the game with Rennes around thanks to options off the bench, whereas injury-hit Roma lacked alternatives against Wolfsberg.

Lazio had a game of two halves against Ligue 1 outfit Stade Rennais. Simone Inzaghi elected to start with a relatively half-strength side and the absences of key creators Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Luis Alberto were felt for most the game, the Biancocelesti failing to create any real scoring opportunities before the duo entered the fray.

Luis Alberto a shining light

Luis Alberto played a key role during Lazio's 1-1 draw with Roma in the Derby della Capitale. Football Italia's Chief Correspondent Richard Hall thinks it's time we showed him more respect.

The Derby della Capitale is always a heated affair and one that is often tense. These games are either wide open and allow a plethora of chances or they are tight and cagey affairs. For Lazio, it doesn’t matter as they have a weapon in their arsenal that can conduct himself brilliantly on all occasions. Luis Alberto has been on the rise for some time in the capital, but in the derby this weekend he showed once more how he could be a leading light in the Biancocelesti’s season.

Lazio v Roma: Tactical Preview

Simone Inzaghi and Paulo Fonseca have differing approaches to football and could make for a fascinating clash at the Olimpico, writes Steven Moore.

From the Capital of Italy, the Biancocelesti will take on the Giallorossi in Week 2 of the 2019-20 Serie A season. This will be the 151st time that they will meet at the Stadio Olimpico since the inauguration of the Italian top-flight in 1929. While Simone Inzaghi’s side started off their campaign with flying colours, crushing Sampdoria 3-0 at Marassi, Paulo Fonseca’s team dropped a lead three times for their six-goal thriller with Genoa.

Sevilla 'press for Luis Alberto'

Sevilla are reportedly keen on signing Lazio attacking midfielder Luis Alberto, who is valued at €25m.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira, Sevilla are ‘pressing’ for Luis Alberto.

Schira adds Lazio are prepared to do business with the Spaniards, providing they receive €25m.

That would constitute a significant profit for the Aquile, who paid Liverpool only €4m to sign him in 2016.

The 26-year-old failed to replicate his 2017-18 form last season, scoring just six goals in all competitions.

Luis Alberto: 'At Lazio for the moment'

Luis Alberto dropped another hint that he is looking for a return to Sevilla. “For the moment I still have a contract with Lazio.”

The creative midfielder is having increasingly tense contract talks with the club and has been repeatedly linked with a move back to Spain.

“We’ll see what happens, for the moment I still have a contract with Lazio,” he told Canal Sur Television after a charity event.

It comes just weeks after his tense to and fro with President Claudio Lotito.

Luis Alberto unhappy with Lotito

Lazio midfielder Luis Alberto has hit out at President Claudio Lotito for suggesting that he is replaceable.

Luis Alberto admitted only two weeks ago he would ‘never’ close the door on a return to Sevilla and that he did not know whether he would sign a new contract with Lazio.

That prompted Lotito to tell Gazzetta dello Sport on Monday: “If there's something in the world football that isn't lacking, it's players.”

Those remarks have since been met with disdain by the 26-year-old.
