Eddy Onazi To Start Super Cup Game Against JuventusAccording to projections by the Italian media, Eddy Onazi will be named in the starting line - up when Lazio tackle Juventus in the Super Cup on Saturday.

Tuttomercatoweb.com says the Biancocelesti manager, Stefano Pioli, is planning to deploy a 4 - 3 - 3 formation, with Onazi handed one of the spots in midfield alongside Biglia and Cataldi.

Over the course of last season, the Nigeria international started only nine games out of a possible 45, and was an unused substitute in Lazio’s 2 - 1 loss to Juventus in the final of the Italian Cup.

The 22 - year - old has racked up 88 appearances for Lazio across all competitions since he made his debut .

The central midfielder will not be called - up for the Super Eagle Afcon qualifying tie with Tanzania after he was red - carded against Tanzania in June.
