Zdravko Kuzmanovic could be the surprise of Walter Mazzarri for the big match at the Olimpico on Monday against Lazio. The Serbian, last started against Genoa on August 25. He has been tested in training by the coach both Friday and yesterday in a role that has lately been occupied by Saphir Taider (that as the right central midfielder). With the Algerian out (left abductor injury) and the return of Alvarez, who was suspended for the derby, it was thought that Zanetti or a confirmation of the launch of Kovacic from the first minute, instead he may eventually call Kuzmanovic who has lately come back into vogue due to Mazzarri’s personal preference. The former Viola – who has played in just 3 games this season (102 mins) – is ready.
