With only Marcos Antonio and new boy Nicolo Rovella expected to miss out through injury on Sunday, Lazio boss Maurizio Sarri has an almost full hand to choose from in Lecce.
Summer signings Valentin Castellanos, Daichi Kamada and Gustav Isaksen could all feature at some stage, but the visitors’ lineup is set to be a familiar one, with Ciro Immobile starting up front in a 4-3-3 formation.
The Italy striker has scored in his first Serie A game for each of the last five Serie A seasons, and he should be joined by either Felipe Anderson or Pedro as part of an attacking trident also featuring Mattia Zaccagni.
France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has declined a transfer from Tottenham Hotspur, so one of the unlikely stars of last season, Ivan Provedel, starts between the posts.
Recently signed from Fiorentina, Lorenzo Venuti is Lecce’s main absentee and will not return from a shoulder injury suffered during pre-season until October. Fellow full-back Antonino Gallo has picked up an ankle problem and may also miss out.
Having arrived in Salento on loan from Russian club Rostov, Pontus Almqvist scored the winner in last week’s cup win against Como, so the former Sweden Under-21 international is set to continue up front; Lorenzo Colombo returned to Milan at the end of last term’s loan deal.
The hosts’ defence will be helmed by Federico Baschirotto, who was the outfield player with most minutes played in Serie A in 2022-23 (3330) and also made the most clearances (186), earning him an Azzurri call-up at the end of last season.
