Juventus vs Lazio
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 6 March 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Allianz Stadium, Turin.
Juventus host Lazio in one of the most exciting games of the Serie A Matchday No 26 on Saturday evening at Allianz Stadium.
The defending champions kept ground on Inter Milan with a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Spezia on Tuesday evening. Alvaro Morata, Federico Chiesa, and Cristiano Ronaldo were on the scoreline on the occasion.
The Bianconeri are still seven points shy of the Nerazzurri at the top of the standings and they can ill afford any more slip-ups in the remaining part of the season if they are to keep the title dreams alive.
Lazio should normally be a tough opposition for Juve, but this might not be the worst time to play Simone Inzaghi’s troops. I Biancocelesti have not been pulling up any trees of late. They seem to be losing touch with the rest of the field in the battle for the top-four positions and a place in the Champions League next season.
Juventus vs Lazio Head-to-head
- Juventus have a positive head-to-head record against I Biancocelesti.
- La Vecchia Signora won 35, drew 13, and lost 17 of the last 65 encounters with Lazio.
- Both teams scored in each of the last five head to head affairs.
- The outfits shared spoils in a 1-1 draw when they took on each other in the first half of the season at Stadio Olimpico.
Juventus vs Lazio Prediction
Lazio lost three of the last four matches in all competitions. They conceded six goals, while scoring just one at the opposite end in the last two defeats to Bayern Munich (1-4 in the Champions League) and Bologna (2-0 in Serie A). Simone Inzaghi’s men have also lost three of the last four away matches across competitions.
It is certainly not the kind of form you want to drag into the clash against in-form and highly-motivated Juventus.
Lazio have been leaking goals with ease lately and we see a nice value in backing the competition’s top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo to score anytime at the odds of 1.66. Juventus’ win is priced up at the 1.80 odds.
