Lazio face a tough task on the road against Zenit Saint Petersburg in their third League fixture of 2020/21, with a number of their important players missing.

Ciro , Thomas Strakosha and Lucas Leiva have all been left behind in Rome, not even making the trip to Russia with their teammates.

Simone Inzaghi only had 12 first-team players available last time out in Europe as the Biancocelesti earned a point away at Club Brugge.

Immobile and Lucas came off the bench at the weekend to help Lazio complete a stoppage-time comeback to win 4-3 at Torino, with the forward scoring a 95th-minute equaliser from the penalty spot.

Strakosha was an unused substitute as Pepe Reina played in goal, as he will on Wednesday.

Zenit Probable XI (4-3-3): Kerzhakov; Karavaev, Lovren, Rakitskiy, Douglas ; Wendel, Barrios, Erokhin; Kuzyaev, Dzyuba, Driussi.

Lazio Probable XI (3-5-2): Reina; Luiz Felipe, Hoedt, ; Marusic, Akpa Akpro, Parolo, Milinkovic, ; Pereira, Muriqi.
