Team News

  • Lazio should be back to full strength with Senad Lulic and Stefano Mauri available again after missing the draw with Juventus at the weekend due to suspension.
  • The Italians will likely change the team that romped to a 3-0 win over Panathanaikos a fortnight ago, with Konko to come in at right back.
  • Miroslav Klose, back to fitness, should lead the line as the home side look to book their place in the next round of the competition.
  • Mousa Dembele has returned to training at Spurs after a rather lengthy lay off due to a hip injury. He did not require surgery, and has a 50% chance of playing here in Italy, though he may be saved for the Premier League clash with West Ham on Sunday.
  • Emmanuel Adebayor will likely start given that he will start serving a 3 game suspension in domestic competition for his sending off against Arsenal at the weekend.
  • Steven Caulker is a doubt with the same injury that kept him out of the north London derby on Saturday.


  • The top two teams in group J face off in Rome with either side able to book their progress to the next round, though that is dependent on the result in the other game for Tottenham.
  • Both sides remain unbeaten in the group but have drawn 5 games between them, including their goalless stalemate at White Hart Lane. Spurs in particular, have clearly found it hard to motivate their better players on a Thursday night, and will need to improve in the competition if they are to go as far as Andre Villas-Boas has claimed they want to.
  • Lazio will be favourites given their home advantage, and although Spurs were probably just about the better side when these sides met in September, Lazio gave a good account of themselves, and in their own back yard, they should just about edge it
