Edy Reja has admitted in an interview with Corriere dello Sport that Lazio fans can expect a second string team for tonight's encounter with Parma in the Coppa Italia:

"I might even an entirely different team to that that played Bologna. We will see the potential we have and I expect great things from them. After Bologna, some are fatigued and I have to alternate the players. I will try to field a team that is better from a physical point of view."

"Vinicius? I have used him as a left-back and I think that's his role. He is very offensive but is pre-disposed to the defence even if he could be described as an attacking player. On whether he will play, I will decide tomorrow."

"I hope that those who take to the field give an important contribution on a technical level. Are cups the priority? No, the goal is to do well in the league, but we do not neglect these competitions. I have two teams available to me and I will use them both. The cup game against Parma gives me a chance to field those who have not found much space."
