Aston Villa vs Lazio Lineups and Last Match

Aston Villa

After Unai Emery turned last season's fortunes with his arrival the Villains have been hungry to beef up their squad this summer and the signing of winger Diaby for a club-record fee proves that.

Villa played in the Premier League Summer Series after opening their preparations with a 1-1 draw vs Walsall that most regulars missed. During the Summer Series, the Villains didn't lose but they drew 3-3 both vs Newcastle and Brentford. In between those games Villa beat Fulham 2-0.

The fact that there are many injury issues in the squad right now means coach Emery has been trusting some of the youngsters. Forward Philogene has been one of those teenagers that has impressed.

Villa remain without both Aaron and Jacob Ramsey for this game. Traore, Moreno and Duran also nurse injuries and sit out. Coutinho, Chambers, Carlos and goalkeeper Steer complete the long injury list.

Predicted Lineup – Martinez (GK), Konsa, Carlos, Torres, Digne, Luiz, Tielemans, Buendia, McGinn, Diaby & Watkins

Lazio

After a historic last season, finishing 2nd in Seria A, the Biancocelesti have been finding it hard to recruit new players this summer. They lost their big star in midfield Milinkovic-Savic (9 goals and 8 assists last term). Lazio are yet to sign a replacement so for now Vecino and Cataldi rotate in the role.

Lazio are a bit further behind Aston Villa with their preparations. The season for the Eagles doesn't start until late in August. So far, they played only 3 low-profile friendlies against lower-league Italian sides. The coming match will be their first proper test.

Full-back Marusic could be missing due to an ankle issue. Also, Akpa Akpro is injured.

Predicted Lineup – Provedel (GK), Lazzari, Casale, Romagnoli, Patric, Vecino, Cataldi, Alberto, Anderson, Immobile & Zaccagni

 

Starting Lineups

*Lineups are usually announced 1hr before kick-off

​Player to Watch: Moussa Diaby

Diaby was made Aston Villa's record signing earlier this summer and the explosive winger has hit the ground running straight away. Coming from the Bundesliga Moussa Diaby brings speed and directness with him. He scored in both of his first starts for the Villains and it is clear that Diaby is eager to justify his price tag as fast as possible.

We fancy Moussa Diaby's chances to find the back of the net again. He can certainly hurt Lazio's backline with his speed.
