Former England midfielder Gascoigne had looked set to miss the tie after being booked to speak at an event on Friday.
But he will defy his fear of flying to catch a plane to Italy on Thursday, before returning the following morning. Reports the BBC
He helped Tottenham win the FA Cup in 1991 and scored six times for Lazio, including a late equaliser during the Rome derby against Roma in November 1992.
Gascoigne had declined an invite to September’s reverse fixture at White Hart Lane, which ended in a goalless draw, due to “personal reasons”.
But his agent, Terry Baker, confirmed he would now be flying to Italy after Lazio’s general manager, Maurizio Manzini, invited the 45-year-old back to Rome.
“He is looking forward to seeing the fans because he has a great affection for them,” Baker said.
