Juventus vs Lazio: Predictions
Champions of Italy for the past nine seasons, Juventus find themselves in very unfamiliar territory this time around. The Old Lady currently sit third after 24 games, seven points adrift of leaders Inter Milan and four behind AC Milan in second, although they do have a game in hand on the latter. Recent slip-ups against Verona (1-1) and Napoli (1-0) have stopped them from gaining ground on Inter, but Andrea Pirlo’s men did beat Spezia 3-0 last time out to restore some confidence.
They play host to a Lazio side equally in need of the points this weekend. Simone Inzaghi’s men sit seventh the table, six points adrift of Atalanta and Juventus in the top four, but with a game in hand on the former. However, Lazio have lost three of their last four games across all competitions and can ill afford any more setbacks if they’re to qualify for the Champions League once again next term. Inzaghi will hope his side’s good recent record against the Old Lady can play in their favour here.
