Lazio’s Mattia Zaccagni to miss derby due to suspension

RomaPress – Bad news for Maurizio Sarri ahead of a crucial derby match on Sunday, as the Italian coach loses one of the team’s more effective attackers.

Mattia Zaccagni will sit out the upcoming derby after being shown his fifth yellow card in yesterday’s Lazio-Venezia fixture at the Stadio Olimpico.

The ex-Verona man was punished for collapsing too easily in the opponent’s penalty area.

Zaccagni had already missed the previous derby due to injury.
