Sunday's match between Champions League rivals Lazio and Napoli has both coaches scratching their heads over player selection. Napoli are missing Zuniga and Gargano are suspended, while Maggio, Campagnaro and Dossena are major doubts. However this is a situation Lazio have been in all season.

Andre Dias definately misses the game following his injury against Parma which may see him out for up to 3 weeks. Lulic is in recovery as is Klose, who returned last night from a medical centre in Munich. Matuzalem is looking likely to miss the match . The Brazilian has pain in his calf muscles and had to partake in light training.

Meanwhile in defense, time is ticking for Radu. He spent training doing underwater exercises and is still feeling the recurrent pain in his right knee. The defense Reja may be forced to deploy is Scaloni, Diakite, Biava and Konko. Brocchi or Cana are in pole to replace Matuzalem while the definates are Ledesma, Gonzalez, Hernanes, Mauri all behind captain Rocchi.

There was a surprise at Formello today as former striker and part of the Scudetto winning team of 2000 Alen Boksic turned up. Boksic met the players and staff while there.
