Lazio vs Juventus 20 Jan 2016: Coppa Italia Preview and Predictions

The final match of the quarter final of the Coppa Italia will be between two of the country’s best teams Lazio will host Juventus in Rome. This is set to be a great match with both sides wanting to win to keep their cup dream alive. This should be an exciting game and it has a ton of value in it so I am excited.

Juventus have been playing some incredible football and after a slow start, they are really giving the top teams a run for their money as they close in on first place. That being said, this team is committed to a number of competitions and this is probably the last priority for them. The Champions League comes first for the Old Lady and then the Serie A so a lose here will not mean to much so I don’t expect a full strength team here.

On the other hand, Lazio have had a bad league run and the cup has become very important to them. This team will also be at home and the home crowd should be getting behind the side from Rome as they look to pull off an upset.

With all that in mind, I think that we are lucky since the bookmakers disagree and put Juventus as favorites. A full strength Juve side will always win here but I don’t think that it will a full strength side. The men from Turin have a long season ahead and giving players rest is very important. On the other hand, Lazio will be at full strength and at home they might just get there. We are getting a great price here so I will definitely be betting on this.
