Delio Rossi can be happy with his efforts after steering the Biancocelesti to sixth spot last term. But the Calciopoli decision has cost Lazio an 11 point penalty and denied them UEFA Cup football this season. Without Fabio Liverani, Ousmane Dabo and Paolo Di Canio this could just be a rebuilding year for the team.
Prediction: The standard unpredictability and a lower mid-table finishing position
