Juventus – Old Lady to put cup disappointment behind them?

After their failure to capture the Coppa Italia, losing 4-2 in extra-time of the final to Inter on Wednesday night, supporters are resigned to the club having won no silverware this season – the first time that has happened since 2010/11. Now, attentions revert back to the league where they find themselves marooned in fourth, unable to be caught by the teams beneath them but unlikely to usurp Napoli in third either.

Nevertheless, the Old Lady will want to end an underwhelming campaign on a positive in these last two games. Motivation should be high also, keen to atone for their shock 2-1 scoreline in defeat to second-bottom Genoa last time out in Serie A. That marked a third winless league game in six for the Bianconeri, who have stuttered of late in Turin having won only one of their last three as a Serie A host (W1 D1 L1).

Key Stat: Each of Juventus’ past five league games featured both teams scoring, with all but one of those contests finishing in a 2-1 scoreline (W3 L1).

Lazio – Sarri’s charges out to protect fifth spot?

Despite securing their second league win on the bounce with a comfortable 2-0 scoreline at home to Sampdoria last time out, Lazio won’t be able to finish any higher than their current position in the table: fifth place. They can, however, be caught by several teams preying for any sort of slip up across these final two rounds, which should keep them honest as they aim to lock in Europa League football for next season.

Maurizio Sarri’s side are finishing 2021/22 strongly. Aside from a harsh 2-1 scoreline at home to AC Milan, in which they conceded a late winner in the dying embers of second-half stoppage-time, the Biancocelesti have been difficult to beat. It is one loss in six (W4 D1) coming into Monday night’s encounter. Moreover, they have won each of their last two on the road, scoring four in victory against Genoa and Spezia.

Key Stat: The recent 2-0 victory at home to Sampdoria snapped a five-game streak of seeing both teams score in Lazio matches. Maurizio Sarri’s men would only fail to score in one of their eleven previous Serie A away games, though.

Juventus Vs Lazio Betting Advice

Unsurprisingly, the price about goals, specifically both teams finding the target, is on the slim side of things. But it looks to have solid claims. Both teams scored in all of Juventus’ last five league games and all but one of Lazio’s last six, so there is a fair chance neither side preserves their clean sheet at Juventus Stadium. Particularly with five of the past six head-to-heads here in Turin seeing both teams oblige in attack.

 

Juventus Vs Lazio – Key Facts:

  • After a 2-0 win in Rome last November, Juventus can complete another league double over Lazio having last achieved the feat as recently as 2018/19. The Bianconeri have won the previous two Serie A meetings as hosts (2-1 & 3-1).
  • However, Massi Allegri’s players are coming off a demoralising week, in which they were beaten 2-1 by second-bottom Genoa days before losing 4-2 to Inter Milan in the Coppa Italia final.
  • Confidence should be high among the visiting contingent, meanwhile. Lazio have won their last two Serie A away matches, scoring four times in each of those wins.

 

So, we’ve concluded that both teams ought to find the back of the net, but what about the actual outcome of the contest? This is Juventus’ first outing since losing the cup final. Allegri’s men cannot finish any lower than fourth, so could lack for tangible motivation. Conversely, Lazio are coming off successive four-goal away victories and need points to keep a clutch of teams at bay in the fight for Europa League qualification.
