Now ex-Biancocelesti Coach Stefano Pioli returns to the Olimpico with a place in the Coppa Italia semi-final at stake.
These sides already met in a controversial 1-1 draw in Rome on November 26, as Stefan de Vrij had put the Aquile ahead, but Babacar converted a 94th-minute penalty awarded via VAR.
It kicks off at the Stadio Olimpico at 20.00 GMT and the winners go on to face Milan or Inter in the two-legged semi-final in January and February.
Babacar has been on strong form coming off the bench and is given a rare start with Riccardo Saponara and Federico Chiesa.
Lazio have Felipe Caicedo and Felipe Anderson up against Fiorentina’s Khouma Babacar in the Coppa Italia Quarter-Final.
This fixture was the Final on two occasions, in 1958 and 1961.
Fiorentina are a little more versatile, even thou网上21点gh they do not have any European commitments to worry about this term.
Lazio: Strakosha; Bastos, De Vrij, Radu; Basta, Parolo, Leiva, Milinkovic-Savic, Lulic; Felipe Anderson; Caicedo
It was a decision that infuriated Lazio so much, they released a statement suggesting attempts to “damage” their season.
Simone Inzaghi fields practically a first-choice XI with Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Lucas Leiva and fit-again Felipe Anderson.
Davide Di Gennaro is the only absentee, as Luis Alberto is rested and Luis Nani only fit for the bench.
Fiorentina: Dragowski; Gaspar, Milenkovic, Vitor Hugo, Astori; Chiesa, Veretout, Sanchez, Benassi; Saponara; Babacar
C21点官网iro Immobile is suffe澳门外围投注ring from flu symptoms and therefore not risked in the starting XI.
