One of the games of the weekend in Serie A will see the Champions Juventus travel to Rome to take on Lazio at the Stadio Olympico. Juventus come into this game in great form having won four games in a row for the first time this season. Led by Paul Pogba and the brilliant Dybala this is a team that has sparked into life in recent weeks and although seven points off top I dont think anyone would be surprised to see the Old Lady at the top of the pile again come May. Juventus had some early season struggles as they tried to adapt to life without Pirlo, Tevez and Vidal, it was a rough transition period but the team has come through it well and they are fighting hard for each other now. Dybala and Mandzukich have started to find the net and Zaza , Morata and Pogba are also chipping in with goals.
While Juve come into this game in good form Lazio have struggled in recent weeks and have lost four of their last five Serie A games. Lazio's struggles are up front where they just have not been able to find the net. Matri, Klose and Dordevich have just four goals between them. Felipe Anderson is also struggling for form but has still been Lazio's best player, he is not producing the brilliant displays he regularly produced last season. Lazio though have only lost one home game this season and only conceded five goals at home. With Juventus losing three on the road already this season I think Lazio are going to fancy their chances of getting a result here at the Stadio Olympico.
Going to take the draw here. I think Juventus have definitely improved in recent weeks but not sure they should be such heavy favourites on the road yet, Juve have really flattered to decieve most of the season and while they are on a winning streak they are still struggling to score goals and Lazio are tough to break down. I think Lazio can get something from this one.
