Juventus vs Lazio: Prediction
The perennial Italian champions are set to tackle the Coppa winner and a Scudetto contender, Lazio, this Sunday. The Supercoppa Italiana will be held in Saudi Arabia for the second consecutive year. Even though this trophy is regarded as rather meaningless, it could serve as a confidence-booster in their title charge.
The Bianconeri are topping the Serie A standings with the win-draw-lose record of 13-3-1. Their 14-game unbeaten run was ended by Lazio two weeks ago ago. Since then, Maurizio Sarri’s introduced ‘tridente’ with Dybala, Ronaldo and Higuain up-front and won two games on the bounce – against Udinese (3-1) at home and Sampdoria (2-1) on the road.
Juve have an average of 2.82 goals on their matches in Serie A, scoring 1.82 goals per game and conceding a goal per bout. More than 70 percent of their league games had BTTS – Yes.
Khedira and Chiellini are surely out with injuries, there are doubts over Szczesny.
Simone Inzaghi’s side come into this match on the back of a remarkable comeback win vs high-flying Cagliari. Luis Alberto and Felipe Caicedo scored in the stoppages to secure 8th victory in a row for the Biancocelesti. They’ve won nine of their last eleven league outings and scored impressive 31 goals in the process. With 36pts on the board and a game in hand, team from the capital is six points off of the top spot.
The Biancocelesti are one of the most overish Serie A teams with 3.38 goals on their games. They’netting 2.38 goals per bout whilst conceding 1 goal in return. At least three goals have been scored in 81 percent of their league matches.
Lukaku, Vavro, Marusic are on the sidelines.
We’re in for an entertaining match with plenty of goalmouth action on both ends.
Juventus will be eager to get their revenge against Roman outfit and with three superstars in attack, I’m confident they will bag at least two goals, but I don’t trust them to keep a clean sheet.
‘La Vecchia Signora ‘ have conceded eight goals in last five league matches and red-hot Lazio are averaging 2.82 goals scored per game since late September.
With a 2-1, 2-2 hunch, I’m hitting goals market again.
