Italy Cup | Lazio VS AS Roma; Thursday, 11 January at 01:00 GMT +8

Lazio, following a 1-2 Serie A win over Udinese, aimed for more success after a 53% possession game. They scored goals by Luca Pellegrini and Matías Vecino, while Udinese had 13 shots and Walace scored. Lazio’s defensive steel has been rare in recent games, and they have been scored against in five of their last six clashes, leaking seven goals.

Roma won a 1-1 Serie A tie with Atalanta, with 55% possession and 16 attempts on goal. Paulo Dybala scored the only goal for Roma, while Atalanta had 8 attempts and 2 on target. Roma has scored 8 times in their last six matches, with a total of 5 goals against them.

Maurizio Sarri’s team, backed by a three-match winning streak, should be named for the match. Mathias Vecino could start from the first minute, while Luis Alberto and Ciro Immobile are unavailable due to muscle problems, retaining Taty Castellanos’ central forward position.

Romelu Lukaku and Paulo Dybala, Roma’s first choice attacking duo, are set to start against Lazio. However, Portuguese tactician Jose Mourinho will be without key players due to injuries, with Leeds loanee Diego Llorente, Marash Kumbulla, Chris Smalling, Renato Sanchez, and Tammy Abraham in the treatment room. Additionally, 24-year-old center-back Evan Ndicka and midfielder Houssem Aouar are out of contention for an extended spell due to their respective national teams.
