Simone Inzaghi hasn’t talked about tomorrow’s goalkeeper to his players yet.


boss thinks it is better if they don’t know tomorrow’s choice at least yet.

Lazio will face



Serie A

in an important match before their


clash against Dortmund.

Here is what he said at his press conference: 

“I don’t really have squad rotation in my mind now, as with five substitutions per game, football has changed,”

“I always wanted more choice, but tomorrow we are certainly missing Vedat Muriqi and Senad Lulic, then we’ll see for Luiz Felipe and the others.

“I haven’t yet told the squad who is playing in goal, but both Thomas Strakosha and Pepe Reina are strong goalkeepers. It’s not a problem, but rather a strength for Lazio to have two such great choices in goal.

“We are up against an Udinese side that won its most recent match and has one of the best defensive records in Serie A. I like the coach, Luca Gotti has his own style, and this represents a dangerous game if we’re not fully focused.

“We’ve played two excellent games since the break for international duty, but there’s no time to look back, we need to focus on the next challenge and there will be many from here on.

“I am accustomed to not being among the favorites going into tournaments, but we have the potential to do well and it depends on us.”

He also said that they have a special jersey for tomorrow’s match in honor of

Diego Maradona


We have lost a legend of football and someone I remember with great fondness,”.

“In October 2016, I was already at Lazio and he came here to train ahead of a charity match. He had such warmth and was so open to everyone.”
