Argentine star, Paulo Dybala, may make his final appearance at the Allianz Stadium in Turin for Juventus as they welcome Lazio for their 37th Serie A match this season. The Old Lady have already disclosed their desire to let him leave, and he will hope to go out on a high as he has scored seven goals in 15 appearances against Lazio.

Dybala’s departure may be the only highlight of this fixture for the Old Lady, as Juventus have already sealed their place in the UCL, come next season. Lazio are, however, looking above their shoulders to be sure of securing the 5th spot ahead of AS Roma, Atalanta, and Fiorentina, who lie only three points behind.

Teams Status

Juventus Form and Team News

The Coppa Italia held nothing but heartbreak for Juventus, as they crumbled yet again to ensure they record their first season without a trophy since 2010/2011. The Biaconeri are prone to collapsing late in matches, and even a spirited comeback against Inter was not enough, as they shipped three goals after going up 2-1.

The Old Lady have a solid record against Lazio, though, winning more Serie A games against them than any other side (84). They will hope to increase that number, especially now that they must finish this season strongly. Weston McKennie, Kaio Jorge, and Federico Chiesa are still on the sidelines and may not participate until next season.

Lazio Form and Team News

Perhaps the only shortcomings of this Lazio side are their inability to win against elite opposition and their defensive challenges. They have scored the second-most goals of any side in Serie A and are on a two-match winning run, with striker and skipper Ciro Immobile in blistering form. Spanish veteran Pedro remains Lazio’s only absentee ahead of their visit to Turin.

Although Champions League qualification is beyond them, they lie only three points ahead of Atalanta, AS Roma, and Fiorentina, who are on 59 points each. They need to keep winning to avoid slipping out of the remaining European places. Still, a terrible record against Juventus and a history of never scoring more than a single goal in their last three away matches are enough to cause worry.

Tipster’s Angle

Juventus’ mixed season is typified by their struggles in recent weeks, with only five wins in their last ten matches across all competitions. They have won 84 games against Lazio all-time and have three wins, one draw, and one loss in their previous five games against the visitors. Lazio’s form away from home in recent weeks is commendable, with three wins, one loss, and one draw in their last five away matches. Here are our thoughts on this meeting:

Tip: Both Teams To Score @ 1.63

Lazio have the second-most goals in Serie A this season and have Immobile in excellent form going into this game. Juventus will hope to respond to their back-to-back losses by putting on a show here, so we expect a thrilling match with both teams finding the back of the net. Both teams to score is available on the Sportsbet.io sportsbook at 1.63 odds.

Tip: Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.78

Meetings between Juventus and Lazio have recorded at least three goals on six of the last ten occasions. The backdrop of this match requires both teams to go for the win, especially Lazio, and we expect chances and goals at both ends of the football pitch. Over 2.5 goals is available on the Parimatch sportsbook at 1.78 odds.


Dybala would have hoped to depart on a high by winning the Coppa Italia, but he will now have to settle for a fine display against Lazio in Turin. Lazio need to win to stay ahead of the chasing pack, setting this fixture up to be an entertaining Serie A game.
