Juventus vs Lazio Preview

Juventus vs Lazio

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Allianz Stadium

Date: 25th August 2018

Kick-off time – 17:00 GMT

The new Serie A season has been boosted by the presence of arguably the greatest player in the history of Real Madrid after Cristiano Ronaldo made the move to Italy this summer.

Juventus have been boosted on all fronts by his arrival, but adding his personality has been a solid achievement not just for the Old Ladies, but for the Italian top flight as a whole.

Ronaldo is set to lead Juve to the Champions League crown as their fans have become bored of winning the Serie A which has become a given however they would not want to miss out on winning the league title they have come to make theirs, no matter what.

They started their campaign with a hard-fought 3-2 win over Chievo, and Cristiano Ronaldo failed to find the back of the net in that game.

It is only a matter of time, and Lazio could be the team that his scoring boots come alive against.

Lazio have been on a rise for the last couple of seasons, and their fans will be expecting them to keep the momentum going and maybe go one better by qualifying for the Champions League at the end of this season.

They started their season on the worst possible note after losing 2-1 to Napoli despite taking the lead through Ciro Imobile.

This game is another tough one, but they have showed in the past two seasons that they can be a handful for big teams and they beat Juventus 2-1 here last season which ended the Old Ladies’ unbeaten home record.

Bookmakers make Juventus extremely strong favourites to come out on top.
