Lazio is hosting Juventus at Stadio Olimpico in a derby match of round 7 in the Italian Serie A.
After the terrible start of the season, Juventus has finally got a grasp on their game, and they haven’t lost any of their last 5 games. Lazio is also undefeated in the Champions League with 1 win and 2 draws, and they are in second place in their group. Earlier this week Lazio was playing against Zenit St. Petersburg on the road, and that game ended in a 1-1 draw. Lazio has been good in the attacking end in Serie A so far with 10 scored goals, but their defense has been leaking all over the field, and Lazio has conceded 12 goals in 6 games. With 10 points, Lazio is in 10th place in the standings. In their latest Serie A game against Torino on the road, Lazio has had 55% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 2 big chances created, and 88% of the correct passes. This was a wild game where Lazio was leading since the 15th minute, but Torino turned the game around until the half time. Lazio has tied the score in the 48th minute, but Torino got ahead in the 87th minute. In the 95th minute, Lazio is awarded a penalty kick which they turned into a goal, and just when we thought this game will end in a draw, Lazio scored another goal in the 98th minute. The final score of this match was 3-4 in favor of Lazio. Immobile has scored 3 goals for Lazio so far this season, while Marusic added 2 assists. Proto, Radu, Lulic, Escalante, Lazzari, and Leiva are all injured, while Anderson, Alberto, Strahosha, and Immobile are still questionable for this game. I’m sure all the injuries have had an impact on Lazio’s game, but this is a derby match, and whoever is in the lineup will have to give it his all.
Juventus has gotten Ronaldo back last weekend, and they have scored 8 goals in their last 2 games since then. After losing to Barcelona in the Champions League, Juventus has bounced back with a nice win against Ferencvarosi on the road. Juventus has won that game 1-4. In their last Serie A game, Juventus was playing against Spezia on the road, and they have had 56% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and a solid 88% of accurate passes. Juventus has won that game 1-4. With 12 points, Juventus is now in 3rd place in the standings. Ronaldo has scored 5 goals for Juventus so far, while Morata and Kulusevski added 2 goals each. Chiesa and Morata each have 2 assists. Sandro is still injured, while De Ligt is close to recovery, but he is still questionable for this game. Juventus’ defense is great this season, and that is what kept them close to the top in the absence of Ronaldo, but their offense is getting back on track now, and Juventus is close to being their old self.
Juventus still hasn’t lost on the road so far this season, and they have had plenty of success on the road against Lazio. There are a lot of injuries in Lazio, and their defense is not doing so well, and for that reason, I’m sticking with Juventus on the road.
