Lazio Depart For Beijing Ahead Of Super Coppa Italia


Bird Nest Stadium, Beijing, China

The Biancocelesti have begun their long trip east to play in the first official encounter of the Italian season.

As the build up to next weekend’s Italian Super Cup final begins, recent reports from Eurosport have declared that Davide Ballardini’s Lazio squad have begun their long journey from the Italian capital to Beijing.

The Aquilotti will fly from Rome to Frankfurt, where they will change for a direct long-haul flight to the Chinese capital.

Of the 22 named players in Ballardini’s first Lazio selection, the most in demand for photographs was new arrival Julio Cruz, who sneaked into the squad right at the death.

Lazio will begin training in Beijing at 19:00 local time on Sunday evening. With access to the Olympic Sport Center, Ballardini’s men will have two double sessions on Monday and Tuesday, whilst the official press conference has been fixed for Friday afternoon at 18:00.
