Stefano Mauri returns to the Lazio squad for this afternoon's Serie A clash against city rivals Roma.
Lazio captain Stefano Mauri has been named on the bench for this afternoon's Serie A clash against city rivals Roma.
The 34-year-old was suspended for failing to alert the authorities to potential match-fixing and has not played since last year's Coppa Italia final win against Roma.
Biancocelesti manager Edoardo Reja continues with the front three of Antonio Candreva, Keita Balde Diao and Miroslav Klose as they look for a sixth successive league match without defeat.
Meanwhile, Roma have recalled Alessandro Florenzi and Miralem Pjanic to their starting lineup after the 3-2 win in the Coppa Italia over Napoli in midweek.
Radja Nainggolan and Adem Ljajic are the players who drop to the bench, while Vassilis Torosidis continues at left-back in place of the injured Federico Balzaretti.
Lazio: Berisha, Konko, Biava, Dias, Radu, Gonzalez, Ledesma, Lulic, Candreva, Klose, Keita
Roma: De Sanctis, Maicon, Benatia, Castan, Torosidis, Pjanic, De Rossi, Strootman, Florenzi, Totti, Gervinho
