Sarri: "I Will Decide The Best Line-up For The Match Against Porto, I Have A Positive Feeling After The First Leg Against Porto."

Maurizio Sarri insists that Lazio is fully focused on the second leg of the last 16 playoffs against FC Porto which will take place on Thursday (24/02) evening local time at the Olimpico instead of thinking about the Serie A match against Napoli.

As Lazio and Napoli both play in the second leg of their Europa League last-16 play-off on Thursday evening local time, Sarri is not at all thinking about the match against his former club which will take place on Sunday night.

"We will think about Napoli from Friday, I will decide the best line-up for the match against Porto," said the coach in his press conference as quoted by Football-Italia.

"The next two games are very important, I'm judging based on six months, not just seven days.  I have a positive feeling after the first leg against Porto, the team has faced a rough difficulty, and also after the game against Udinese we showed our reaction."

Will Ciro Immobile be included in Lazio's line-up to face the Portuguese representative?

"We will see today (Wednesday) and decide tomorrow, he is out for only six days," said the coach.

Immobile is currently training with the team at Formello and is likely to start with even Luis Alberto revealing that his team-mate will return for Thursday night's match.  However, it seems that the hosts still cannot be strengthened by Francesco Acerbi and Pedro because they are still recovering.  In addition, Mattia Zaccagni is also confirmed to be absent due to the accumulation of yellow cards.
