Juventus vs Lazio Preview

Juventus vs Lazio

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Allianz Stadium

Date: 14th October 2017

Kick-off time – 17:00 GMT

 

The big games of this weekend continues in Italy as Juventus host SS Lazio hoping to avenge their 3-2 loss to them in the Supercoppa Italia early on in the season.

The Old Ladies were stunned by a late winner in that match which ended a long stretch of losing streak for Lazio against the Italian champions and the Old Ladies will be looking to show them that was just a flash in the pan.

Juventus head into this game in second position, a position they are unfamiliar with having been the most dominant team in Italy over the past few seasons.

Napoli are top of the league this time after winning all of their matches to date and Juventus will feel their challenge this time in genuine.

Paulo Dybala has been in incredible goal scoring form – he netted twice against Lazio in that loss and has scored 10 goals in seven games so far.

He will be key for them here and looks likely to net another goal in this game.

Lazio have been good also as they head into this game off the back of three good wins and two cleans sheets.

They defeated Hellas Verona, Zulte-Waregem, and Sassuolo.

They have had their own struggles at the back when they play away from home as they have conceded 5 goals from their last 4 on the road.

This game is an important one for them and we expect them to once again compete and keep the game tight.
