Juventus will be looking to bounce back from their dissapointing showings that has seen them pick only 2 points in their last 3 matches. The old lady will face fourth placed Lazio at Allianz Stadium on Monday evening.
The Serie A restart has seen Juventus won 4 league matches at a stretch and hoping to retain the title they won last season. Their recent performance have been below par so far with 2 points out of a possible 9 and 9 goals conceded. They still hold a 5 points lead over Inter Milan and that can increase to 8 if they secure a win today.
Lazio strong pre coVid19 Serie A performance this season has taking a sharp decline since the restart. Lazio have lost 4 matches in their last 7 matches since the restart compared to the 2 lost in 26 matches.

Juventus vs Lazio team news
Giorgio Chiellini, Mattia De Sciglio, and Sami Khedira are all out injured. Maurizio Sarri will have to cope with the absence of Federico Bernardeschi who’s out due to suspension for this game. This may see Sarri start Higuain flanked by Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala upfront. De Ligt and Bonucci will be expected to pair at the back.
Simone Inzaghi have some injury concerns with Lucas Leiva, Adam Marusic, Joaquin Correa, Senad Lulic, and Luis Alberto out injured. Patric is on a 3 match ban following his late red against Leece.
Juventus vs Lazio preview
Sarri is currently facing pressure from his underachievement this season. He was signed as an upgrade to Allegri but hasn’t proven that. Their winless run in the last 3 matches is a source of concern especially the collapse against AC Milan. They have been superb in front of goal since the restart scoring 4 goals twice, 3 goals twice, and 2 goals thrice. The only problem is there shaky defense.
They face a different Lazio side that have won just 2 matches out of 7 since the restart. Their last couple of matches have been poor. They have conceded goals from relegation threatened Leece to mid-table team Sassuolo and Europe hopeful AC Milan. Their last 0-0 draw with Udinese will be appreciated by Inzaghi.
Juventus vs Lazio predictions
Juventus still have Champions League commitments and will want to get the Serie A out of the way as soon as possible. They can do that with a positive result this evening.
They face a Lazio side that drew 0-0 with Udinese joint lowest scoring team in Serie A. Lazio are bereft of confidence and this is the best time to steal valuable points from them.
Cristiano Ronaldo who failed to score in the 3-3 draw against Sassuolo will hope to get the goals in this match in the race for the Serie A golden boot and European Golden shoe gong.
I expect Lazio poor showing to continue and should see them to concede atleast 2 goals from a Juventus side that have scored 11 goals in their last 4 matches.
Juventus over 1.5goals at odds 1.51 on betscorum looks great.
