In the Italian Serie A, Juventus are set to travel to Rome where they will play against Lazio.
Juventus enter this match having dropped points in their previous match. Last weekend, Juventus only managed a 2-2 draw at home against Sassuolo. It was a poor attacking display by Juventus as they failed to capitalize on their chances. Juventus had 29 shots but only 9 shots were on target. The draw has resulted in Juventus falling behind Inter Milan at the top of the Serie A ladder. This is a big game for Juventus as they must win to ensure Inter Milan don’t build a gap at the top of the ladder.
On the other side of the coin, Lazio enter this match in outstanding form. As it currently stands, Lazio are 3rd on the Serie A ladder with 30 points from their 14 matches. In their previous outing, Lazio defeated Udinese 3-0 at home. It was a dominant performance by Lazio as they controlled 52% of the ball and had 21 shots. Ciro Immobile was outstanding as he scored twice for Lazio. Lazio have won their last 4 games and the team looks to be playing with great confidence. This is expected to be a tough match but Lazio should be confident in their ability to produce a big result against Juventus.
Juventus and Lazio last played each other in January. The match was played in Rome with Juventus winning 2-1. Joao Cancelo and Cristiano Ronaldo scored goals for Juventus while Lazio got their goal via an own goal by Emre Can.
This should be an exceptional match since it involves two of the best teams in Italy. I am going to make a bold prediction and pick Lazio to win this match. Juventus have not been at their best this season while Lazio have impressed every time they have played. Lazio have the advantage of playing at home and I see them being good enough to get 3 points from this fixture.
