Lazio, chance for Isaksen: the Dane wants to conquer Tudor

It will be a hyper-offensive Lazio that will face Verona at the Olympic Stadium this evening. Igor Tudor’s performances speak clearly, we will see an extremely offensive Biancoceleste version with a lot of quality on the pitch. In addition to the returning Kamada, who is back available after the calf problem and who will play alongside Guendouzi, this evening there will also be space from the first minute for Gustav Isaksen. The Dane, who Tudor spoke about yesterday in the press conference, will thus have a new chance after the failure in the derby three weeks ago.

New chance and new role

The Dane therefore returns to the field from the first minute but will do so in an atypical role for him. In fact, Isaksen will start wide on the right in the Biancoceleste 3-4-2-1, thus taking Hysaj’s place with Marusic employed on the left. A proactive solution that demonstrates the desire to Tudor to attack from the first minute, in what for him will be an ex’s challenge. For Isaksen, an important opportunity both to redeem himself after the failure in the derby and to show off in a role where there may be space. Lazio lacks quality on the wings and the Dane can bring running and unpredictability which was also missing on Tuesday against Juventus in the Italian Cup.

The latest from the infirmary

Speaking of the match against Juventus, whoever came out of it was battered Mario Gila. The Spaniard suffered a medium-grade muscle injury, which effectively means putting an end to the former Real Madrid’s second season in white and blue. Lazio will start again from him and Mattia Zaccagni next year. The former Verona player is back available today, Tudor has guaranteed that there will be space for him during the ongoing match. He will instead serve another week for Provedel, who has however returned to training and barring any problems in the next few days he will resume his starting place next Saturday in Monza.
