Juventus News and Form – Can Juventus beat Lazio?

Back in the 2017 Italian Super Cup, Lazio pulled off a shock win in what was a dramatic finish. Lazio were 2-0 up with only five minutes to go. They ended up getting over the line with a 3-2 success five minutes later. Juventus won the domestic league title again last season, which is why they are back in his match.

They have some form going in the Italian Super Cup. Juventus have won four of the last seven editions including last year’s when they beat Milan 1-0. Cristiano Ronaldo scored the only goal of that game. The Bianconeri have won their last three games in all competitions since losing to Lazio in the league. That 3-1 reverse, in which they have Juan Cuadrado sent off with 20 minutes to go (Lazio scored two goals following that), is the only loss that Juve have suffered this season in any competition.

Lazio News and Form – Can Lazio beat Juventus again?

Lazio’s recent 3-1 league win over Juventus at home, was helped by their opponents going down to ten men. But Lazio took their chances, regardless and got their three points. They are currently sitting third in Serie A and they have gotten better the longer the season has worn on. They were really slow out the gates winning only four of their first eleven games in all competitions.

But they have really stepped on the gas and have gone W9 L2 in their last eleven in all competitions. The two defeats in a sequence were in the Europa League, where they looked sorely disinterested. Lazio are four time-winners of the Italian Super Cup, the first of those having been won in 1998. They make their appearance in the match because they won last season’s Coppa Italia.

Juventus vs Lazio Predictions

Juventus to win: Would Lazio have gotten that recent league win over Juve if the Old Lady had not gone down to ten men? That’s debatable. The sensible money would still have to be leaning towards Juventus.
