Serie A – Lazio-Juventus
Lazio faces the champion Juventus at the Stadio Olimpico in the capital in a game from the 15th round of the Serie A. Are you ready to take a look at this incredible fixture on Saturday?
For Lazio this season is going more than well so far. The Eagles are third in the standings with 30 points, showing to everyone that they will be serious about competing for a Top 4 place and return to the Champions League. Right now Lazio are the team in the best form in the Serie A, enjoying a run of six consecutive wins in the league.
In their last match Lazio hosted Udinese at the Olimpico and secured a dominant 3-0 win. The team’s main goalscorer Ciro Immobile scored twice for the hosts, while Luis Alberto added the third one. Ciro Immobile continues to lead the goalscoring chart in the Calcio with 17 goals scored so far – 7 more than Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku.
Juventus are travelling to the capital in a delicate moment. The Bianconeri just lost the first place in the standings to Inter Milan, currently being one point behind the Nerazzurri. This happened after Juventus’ shocking 2-2 draw against Sassuolo at home. Nobody really expected that Juve could lose points in this game, but Leonardo Bonucci and Cristiano Ronaldo’s goals were not enough for the home side.
Juventus’ manager Maurizio Sarri could make some adjustments to his line-up on Saturday. Most likely Paulo Dybala will return in the starting eleven, while Blaise Matuidi could also get another starting place.
Juventus are not used to the feeling to be a chaser in the Serie A, so that’s a pretty new thing to them. And against Lazio on Saturday it won’t be easier for them.
We believe that Lazio will give a really tough test to Juventus. How we said, Simone Inzaghi’s boys are the team in the best shape in the Serie A at the moment, so it won’t be easy for the Bianconeri.
