Lazio coach Edy Reja will be without the services of midfield enforcer Cristian Brocchi and striker Libor Kozak. Lorik Cana is out for six weeks with a back injury, while Stefano Mauri is still sidelined with a thigh problem.

New winter signing Emiliano Alfaro will have to wait another week to make his debut as he is still nursing a calf injury.

The injury list is long and daunting for Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri as he will have to make do without a plethora of first-team regulars. Kevin-Prince Boateng is sidelined with a thigh injury, while Alexandre Pato out for three weeks with another muscle complaint.

Alexander Merkel has been ruled out for two months with a knee injury sustained in training earlier in the week. Antonio Cassano, Gennaro Gattuso and Alberto Aquiliani are all still dealing with long-term injury concerns.
