Lazio’s Sarri revives Vecino in Champions League, from outcast to starter

Tomorrow evening’s game between Atletico Madrid and Lazio will mark the return of Uruguayan midfielder Matias Vecino from the first minute, according to leading Italian sports publication Corriere dello Sport.

From excluded to a starter, the trajectory for Vecino has drastically shortened. Maurizio Sarri, the Lazio coach, reportedly needs the experience of the former Inter player. Vecino will form a midfield trio with Guendouzi and Luis Alberto in a game that is crucial for the European future of the Biancocelesti.

Laying down the stakes, Sarri seems to intend a bold statement of intent for Lazio’s continental ambitions.
