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.
