Juventus vs Lazio Match Preview & Team News
Bianconeri managed to get closer to the leading duo, but they dropped some points in the past few rounds. The defending champions lost away to Napoli and also secured only a draw in Verona. Andrea Pirlo’s side is now ten points behind Inter, and with one game in hand. Cristiano Ronaldo and the lads managed to get back on the winning track in the latest round after celebrating a 3:0 victory over Spezia. However, the problem still remains when playing away from home, and Juventus needs to address it quickly. The hosts sit in 3rd place, and considering Inter’s form, they don’t have the right to make any mistakes. Juventus is very hard to beat in the back, but they missed several chances of winning due to the lack of efficiency in front of the oppositions’ net. Nevertheless, Juve is in great form at Allianz Stadium, as they lost only once at the home ground. The hosts celebrated five times in a row at their venue, and they want to keep that streak going.
Lazio didn’t play last weekend as their game against Torino got postponed due to a high number of Covid-19 cases in Il Toro’s squad. They had some extra time to prepare for a trip to Bologna, but they got back home with empty pockets. Simone Inzaghi’s side lost 2:0 on the road and slipped to 7th place. Biancocelesti are six points behind Atalanta and with one game in hand. However, an unstable form is something that should worry Sergej Milinkovic Savic and the lads. Lazio lost two out of their last three matches, and they need an improvement in the battle for the Champions League ticket. The visitors lost twice in a row at the away grounds, and they need to get back on the winning track. Lazio should be more disciplined in the back since they are not so efficient as in the previous season. It is going to be a challenging task for them to get back home undefeated.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Neither side has been very confident lately, and we expect to see a close encounter. Despite several injury concerns, we believe Juventus will make it through and secure important three points.
Goals Market Prediction
In their previous five head-to-head clashes, neither side managed to keep its clean sheet. Since both teams prefer an attacking style of play, we could see goals in both nets once again.
