Federico Marchetti will pull on the Lazio jersey for the 100th time in his career on match day eleven in season 2013/2014 against Genoa at the Stadio Olimpico this weekend. “Against Genoa I will wear the Biancocelesti jersey for the 100th time. It is an honour”, told Marchetti to reporters.

Since joining the club from Cagliari Calcio in the summer of 2011 the popular goalkeeper has made 99 appearances for Rome’s first club. Marchetti started his Lazio career against the Macedonian club FC Rabotnicki in the Europa League preliminary qualifying round in August later that year.

To date Marchetti has made 74 appearances in Serie A for Lazio, 20 in the Europa League, 4 in the Italian Cup and 1 in the Super Cup Final.

Against Genoa he will try to mark another milestone; and that is a victory over the Ligurian team. The goalkeeper has never managed to partake in a victory against the Rossoblu, even in his past days with Cagliari.

Since Marchetti moved to Lazio in July 2011 he has also been recalled to the Italian national team setup by coach Cesare Prandelli and has featured in a couple of matches for the Azzurri.
