Maurizio Sarri states it wasn’t Paulo Dybala who played against Lazio. To everyone’s surprise, this evening Higuain was initially in the start XI but pulled out to make space for Dybala in the warm-up.
“Dybala had this back pain in training yesterday and that’s why he was not going to get started. During the warm-today, Gonzalo then had the same trouble and Paulo felt fine, so we had to lose him. We have a few issues right up front at the moment, “the coach revealed to Sky Sport Italia.
“We often adjust based on whether extending the opposition protection is easier or moving straight through, but it mostly depends on who is in the strongest condition or requires breakage.”
