There’s a whole lot of excitement going on across the entire landscape of European football right now, and that especially extends to Serie A. After years of essentially being a one-team league, things are really starting to heat up this season with there being plenty of talking points littered throughout the entire division. Today, we’re going to be taking a look at a game that could have some huge implications as Juventus prepare to tussle with Lazio.

Juventus

The kings of Italy are on the verge of losing their crown as the Old Lady prepares to suffer for the sins they committed during the first half of the campaign. Many feel as if they’ve still got the kind of edge and experience that is going to help them in the final stretch of the season but with Inter Milan looking so strong, it’s tough to imagine a scenario in which Juve can sneak through the back door.

Team News

Bentancur is set to miss out after testing positive for COVID-19 whereas Bonucci and Arthur are both fitness doubts. Cuadrado is expected to start but elsewhere, Frabotta is suspended with Dybala & Chiellini both being ruled out through injury.

Lazio

As one of the original bad boy teams of Italian football it’s been interesting to see Lazio rise and fall and rise again over the years, but this season, they seem to be quite unsure of themselves. They’re on the outside looking in at the race to qualify for the Champions League and after being battered by Bayern Munich in the competition’s Round of 16, it feels as if they’re struggling to really find their identity as a unit.

Team News

While Lazio fans will always hope to hope everyone available for selection for a game of this magnitude, that’s not quite how this business works. Felipe, Radu and Lazzari have all been ruled out through injury in a game that could see Lazio easily lose even more ground in the race to get back into the UCL.

Factors to Consider

  • In their last meeting back in November, Lazio and Juventus drew 1-1.
  • Juventus have won two, drawn two and lost two of their last six games.
  • Lazio have won three and lost three of their last six games.
  • Juventus have scored eight goals and conceded four in their last six games.
  • Lazio have scored seven goals and conceded 10 in their last six games.

Conclusion

It’s starting to feel like Lazio’s inconsistency in the league is really going to cost them and on the flip side, Juve have a tendency to put together a strong end of season run – and we think they’ll do the same this time around. We’re going to back them to edge out the win over Lazio in what’s probably going to be a really gritty game. They won’t blow them out of the water, but they’ll do enough to keep themselves in the title hunt.
