La Dalliara has made the most of its time at the top of the table, but is still struggling with a few of its key players.
A good run of form and a couple of injuries have put the club in a bind and are hindering the progress of the squad.
But they’re still very much in the mix for the top-four and the Europa League places.
Lazio are without one of their best players, Giorgio Nesta, and have lost captain Alessandro Di Francesco and striker Gianluigi Buffon.
They will also miss the likes of Andrea Di Biagio, Stefano Sturaro, Gennaro Gattuso, Mauro Icardi and Luca Zamparini.
They will be without one player, but they have lost two of their most important players.
They have also been without a key player from their under-20s team, the versatile Andres Romero, who has been suspended after failing a drugs test.
In addition, they have suffered a number of injuries.
Mario Castiglione has been forced to pull out of the international break with an ankle injury, while Mario Mancini, who had been linked with a return to the international stage, has returned from a calf injury.
The other major injury is that of goalkeeper Gianluca Di Montezemolo, who is expected to be out for six to eight weeks.
It’s not a huge blow to the squad, but it could be the difference between winning the Europa or not.
The club is also without several key midfielders, especially Di Montezzemolo.
The Italian international had been a key cog in the defence, as well as an attacking threat, but his future at the club was up in the air after he failed a drug test last week.
The club will have to make do with the experienced Mancino, who was the subject of a similar test in December.
Another injury to the midfield is that one of the club’s most talented players, Mario Mazzone, has pulled out of Italy’s upcoming friendlies against Romania and Germany.
The player has suffered from an ankle problem, and the club will not be able to call up him.
Mazzone’s injury is the latest setback for the club, which is without a top-tier win in Italy in nearly a year.
The team is currently 10th in Serie A, and they’re hoping to make it to the last eight of the Champions League.
