Ahead of the match between Lazio and Genoa at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris on Saturday, Aquilotti boss Delio Rossi has heaped praise on his upcoming opponents, claiming they are "the team that plays the best football in the league" and are an "example to follow" for other clubs, according to ANSA.
Indeed, the Grifoni are having a splendid season, recently winning over Juventus by a score of 3-2, sitting in fourth place in Serie A and in pole position to qualify for the Champions League.
Meanwhile, the coach went on to say that the match with Juventus in the Coppa Italia in midweek, where the Biancocelesti lead on aggregate 2-1, would be as important for them as the recent Rome derby.
Unfortunately for Rossi, he is likely to have several selection issues in midfield for this weekend's tie with the Rossoblu.
Francesco Matuzalem and Cristian Brocchi are both suspended, while Italian international Pasquale Foggia is out with injury.
The latest reports indicate that the former Atalanta boss will push defender Stephan Lichtsteiner up into midfield, along with Cristian Ledesma, Ousmane Dabo, and Stefano Mauri.
