Juventus and Lazio are clashing at Allianz Stadium in round 37 of the Italian Serie A. Juventus have lost in the Coppa Italia finals earlier this week, but they are safe in that 4th place in the Serie A standings. Lazio can’t reach the Champions League anymore, but they are still in danger of losing that Europa League spot they are on at the moment.
The season is pretty much done for Juventus, and the only trophy they could have won was the Coppa Italia, which they lost in the overtime to Inter earlier this week. Juventus was losing at halftime of that game, but with 2 quick goals in the second half, Juventus took the lead. Unfortunately for Juventus, they have conceded a goal, the game went to the overtime, and Juventus has conceded 2 more goals then. The final score was 2-4 for Inter. Juventus has been terrible in Serie A this season, they haven’t done much in the Champions League, and they didn’t deserve to win anything. With 10 scored goals and 5 assists, Dybala has been Juventus’ best player this season. but he will be leaving the club in the summer. Morata has added 8 goals and 5 assists. There are still a few injured players for Juventus. Overall, a very disappointing season for Juventus, and they can only hope the next one will be better.
Lazio is now on a nice 2-game winning streak which brought them to this Europa League spot, but the bad news is they can no longer reach the Champions League spot. When it comes to scoring goals, Lazio has been one of the best this season with 72 scored goals so far, but their defense has been horrible with 53 conceded goals. I think if they consider everything, Lazio will be happy with the Europa League spot, that is if they get it because they are still in danger of losing it. Immobile has been outstanding for Lazio this season with 27 scored goals, but he is still questionable for this game. Milinkovic-Savic has 10 goals and 10 assists. There are no injuries in Lazio at this time. In the last game of the season, Lazio will be playing against Verona at home, and I’m not sure if they can really count on points in that one, but they are good enough in the attacking end to outscore Juventus in this game, and I think they will go for it.
Juventus hasn’t lost to Lazio in their last 3 home games, but they don’t need anything from this game. Lazio is a fantastic team in the attacking end, but their defense is garbage. I see goals in this one, on both sides.
