Lazio coach Edy Reja would take Miroslav Klose over Udinese's Antonio di Natale every time.

The veteran pair will be on the same pitch today.

Reja said: “Both are decisive, despite their age. Klose has found the right environment, his form and is in an amazing moment of form. I’d like to find the right opportunity to rest him. I do not ask Klose to help out the defence, but he does it anyway, because he feels the need to give something more.

“Klose and Di Natale would make a good pairing. Antonio plays on the edge of the offside trap and is very sharp. Miro is more of a team player. Both are champions, but I choose Klose, as he goes beyond merely finishing off the moves.”
