Edy Reja must contend with a lengthy list of absentees that include Javier Garrido, Senad Lulic and striker Miroslav Klose on the treatment table, while Andre Dias and Matuzalem are suspended from featuring against Cagliari.

Nevertheless, Lazio look set to call upon Mobido Diakite, Abdoulay Konko, Alvaro Gonzalez and Libor Kozak as replacements from the 1-0 defeat to Catania last weekend.

Meanwhile for Cagliari, they too have a number of players missing from contention. Moestafa El Kabir, Daniele Dessena, Rui Sampaio and Sebastian Eriksson all sit out of the league clash with the capital outfit, as Michele Canini is also banned.
