Juventus vs Lazio Prediction & Match Preview



6 March 2021 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET Serie A Allianz Stadium

Juventus will be looking to build on a 3-0 win over Spezia when they take on Lazio at Allianz Stadium. 

The Bianconeri do not want to give up on the title dream, and we are positive that they will adopt yet another attack-minded approach against the Biancocelesti. 

Alvaro Morata, who scored as a substitute in the triumph over Spezia, is widely expected to return to the starting XI, while defender Giorgio Chiellini should recover in time to face Lazio.

The capital club, on the other hand, were not in action in midweek as their game against Torino was postponed. Anyhow, home win should be considered as Juve are determined to melt Inter’s advantage in the Serie A standings. 

Both Luiz Felipe and Radu remain in the recovery room, while Lazzari should be fit to face the Bianconeri. In their last meeting in Turin Juventus defeated Lazio 2-1.

Team News:

The injury-hit Juventus rearguard will remain undermanned on Saturday evening, as Andrea Pirlo is once more set to be without the injured Giorgio Chiellini, while both Leonardo Bonucci and Juan Cuadrado are doubtful and full-back Gianluca Frabotta is suspended after picking up another yellow card against Spezia. However, Matthijs de Ligt has reportedly recovered from the knock which caused him to miss Tuesday's game, so should partner Merih Demiral in central defence, allowing Alex Sandro to switch back to the left flank.

Injury-plagued forward Paulo Dybala and midfielder Arthur are also expected to remain sidelined through injury, while Weston McKennie will look to celebrate signing a permanent deal after a successful loan spell by keeping his place in the XI, at the expense of hit-and-miss midfield option Aaron Ramsey.

Lazio wing-back Manuel Lazzari will sit out Saturday evening's events with a calf injury which he picked up in the loss at Bologna last weekend, while injured defenders Luiz Felipe and Stefan Radu are longer-term absences.

More commonly a midfielder, Marco Parolo is expected to compete with error-prone Wesley Hoedt and January signing Mateo Musacchio for a place in Simone Inzaghi's patched-up back three, alongside Patric and Francesco Acerbi. Gonzalo Escalante returns from a ban, but will likely play second fiddle to Lucas Leiva in central midfield.

Following his penalty miss at Dall'Ara, last year's Capocannoniere Ciro Immobile has scored only once in his past five matches, but will start alongside favoured foil Joaquin Correa in attack.

Juventus possible starting lineup:
Szczesny; Danilo, Demiral, De Ligt, Sandro; Chiesa, Bentancur, Rabiot, McKennie; Kulusevski, Ronaldo

Lazio possible starting lineup:
Reina; Patric, Parolo, Acerbi; Marusic, Milinkovic-Savic, Leiva, Alberto, Lulic; Correa, Immobile
