Lazio dealt double boost

Lazio’s top-four hopes have been boosted by Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Luis Alberto only being banned a Serie A game each.

The pair were expected to be suspended for two matches after they were shown straight red cards against Chievo, but they will miss just Lazio’s next League fixture at Sampdoria.

In addition to receiving a ban, Milinkovic-Savic has been fined €10,000 by the FIGC.

Elsewhere, Roma will be without Bryan Cristante and Nicolo Zaniolo for one round after they accumulated yellow-card suspensions versus Inter.

Bans are also been handed out to Torino’s Daniele Baselli, Cagliari’s Paolo Farago, SPAL’s Thiago Cionek, Frosinone’s Camillo Ciano, Sassuolo’s Manuel Locatelli and Genoa’s Miguel Veloso.
