LIVESTREAM Italy: Milano Rhinos @ Lazio Ducks, June 13, 14:00 CET (2 pm, 08:00 am ET)

The Milano Rhinos will travel Rome to take on the Lazio Ducks Sunday, June 13 as Italy’s clock tournament is in full swing.

Lazio currently sits in the middle of a crowd of teams vying for the final two playoff spots in Italy’s top league, Division 1, making today a must win game for the home team Ducks.

The last time these two teams faced each other earlier this season, the Ducks came out on top in a shoot out, 63-62.

Lazio’s quarterback Luke Casey has played well this season, building chemistry with former five-year NFL veteran receiver Matt Hazel. Unfortunately, Hazel was last seen on the sideline in a sling during their last game on May 22nd. Former Lazio running back Mike Gentili was a surprise addition to the roster in that game as the standout running back played both ways in an iron man effort loss against the defending champion Milano Seamen.

Look for Gentili to play on defense again this week as the Ducks will hopefully get Hazel back in the line-up for this must win game. Expect for French defensive back Valentine Roesche to be a key player as he lines up against a potent Milano passing attack. Roesche will have the help of Gentinili, as well as veteran Italian defensive back Edoardo Nati on the back end of the defense.

Despite their poor record, the Rhinos go into this game with one of the league’s best offenses. Quarterback Giovanni Rescigno and receiver Jason Mathew-Sharsh have been the league’s best passing duo, as Sharsh sits atop all statistical receiving categories. On the ground, versatile French weapon Amir Kilani has been a load to tackle and can help give this Rhinos offense another dimension.

Milano’s defense, on the other hand, comes in at the bottom of the league, giving up 39 points and 427 yards a game. Veteran defenders Ricardo Restelli and Ricardo De Mas will look to turn that around as the Rhinos aim to finish their last two games on a high note.

This game is a must win for the Ducks as they look to secure a playoff spot. The visiting Rhinos have a chance to play spoiler and earn their first taste of victory since their season opener way back on April 11th.
