Following the fallout from the abandoned fixture against Torino, Lazio now turns the page to an upcoming key Serie A fixture against Juventus.
Lazio still sits outside the top-four in the league standings, so this fixture against the reigning Serie A champions is a pivotal one at this point in the season.
Former Italian defender Giancarlo Oddi sees just how crucial this match is for Lazio. However, unlike in previous seasons, Oddi does not see Juventus as the clear favorites in this match, especially with its league form as of late.
Juventus doesn’t play good football, but they can always get the result. They have players that put them in trouble. It will be important for Lazio because they have to run for fourth place.
However, it’s not the Juventus of before. Lazio is on a par with the Bianconeri, as a game and as a team they can fight on equal terms.
A win for either side could be a season-changing one at this point in the league campaign.
