Ok, we face Ascoli at Stadio De Luca, the bottom team in the standing in what could easily be a historic win for Lazio as this team would equal the record set by Eriksson`s team in 99-00 season, that is, 9 wins in a row.
Delio Rossi will be without Behrami (out for yellow cards) as well as Mutarelli and Cribari who are yet to recover from the injuries which are keeping them out for over a month now. However, Ledesma will be back after serving a one game suspension against Messina last Saturday. Lazio has to maintain the winning record if they wish to ensure a place in the Champions League next season. Considering our form in the last 2-3 months, meeting Ascoli could not be a difficult thing especially taking into consideration the home side`s grave situation in the standings, however, the team must remain focused and be as clinical as possible in finishing.
Rossi is expected to field the following 11:
Peruzzi; Belleri-Stendardo-Siviglia-Zauri; Mudingayi-Ledesma-Manfredini; Mauri; Pandev-Rocchi.
