Juventus vs Lazio
2017 Italian Super Cup
Date: Sunday, 13th August 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico, Rome.
Juventus and Lazio will square off at Stadio Olimpico, the home of A.S. Roma. The two sides will fight for the Italian Super Cup trophy.
The Old Lady are under slight pressure to win the trophy taking their domination in Italy into an account, while the title would be a valuable tailwind from the team from the capital.
The Bianconeri had a cold shower at Wembley Stadium as Tottenham Hotspur outplayed them 2-0. Their preseason didn’t go well – mostly due to Bonucci’s absence, who joined AC Milan. Chiellini said for the press that the defeat in London was a cold slap they needed.
Lifting a trophy would work wonders for The Old Lady, especially after the painful defeat in UEFA Champions League final.
Lazio’s preseason went perfectly. They won four out of four games, beating Triestina and Spal at first, but also Bayer Leverkusen and Malaga.
This season, Lazio will fight for UEFA Europa League as the competition in Italy is huge, and securing the spot beside AC Milan, Inter and possibly Torino won’t be easy.
Juventus vs Lazio: Head-to-head
Allegri’s men are dominating against Lazio – Juve won last seven competitive matches with Lazio. The last time Lazio won was back in 2013 when Floccari scored in the 93rd minute to seal Lazio’s spot in Coppa Italia final.
Juventus vs Lazio: Prediction
The quality of Juve’s players is undoubtedly higher than Lazio’s, but in the finals, the gap between the two sides is slightly reduced. The pressure is on Allegri’s men as they are expected to lift at least two trophies per season. Both teams are likely to score as Juventus are forming their ‘new’ defense without Bonucci and Dani Alves, and imagining either Gonzalo Higuain or Paolo Dybala off the scoresheet is hard.
