Two recent defeats have seen the Biancocelesti risk dropping out of the Champions League places, but they have been given the chance of redemption against Massimo Ficcadenti's side


PROBABLE LINEUPS

LAZIO


Marchetti
Konko, Diakite, Biava, Radu
Gonzalez, Ledesma, Mauri
Hernanes
Kozak, Rocchi
CAGLIARI


Agazzi
Pisano, Ariaudo, Astori, Agostini
Ekdal, Conti, Nainggolan
Cossu
Thiago Ribeiro, Pinilla

Edy Reja must contend with a lengthy list of absentees that include Javier Garrido, Senad Lulic and striker Miroslav Klose on the treatment table, while Andre Dias and Matuzalem are suspended from featuring against Cagliari.

Nevertheless, Lazio look set to call upon Mobido Diakite, Abdoulay Konko, Alvaro Gonzalez and Libor Kozak as replacements from the 1-0 defeat to Catania last weekend.

Meanwhile for Cagliari, they too have a number of players missing from contention. Moestafa El Kabir, Daniele Dessena, Rui Sampaio and Sebastian Eriksson all sit out of the league clash with the capital outfit, while Michele Canini is also banned.

However, coming fresh off an impressive 3-0 win over relegation-fodder Cesena, Massimo Ficcadenti is unsurprisingly expected to name an unchanged lineup from the side that put the Seahorses to the sword.
