It will certainly be a difficult game against Lazio, who have always put us in difficulty in the last few matches. We’re playing at home and this will give us that extra something, even if unfortunately, our fans won’t be there, but it’s still our stadium.

It’s going to be a battle, but if we play like Juventus, we’ll definitely get the result. It’s not easy not to think about Porto in the Champions League, but first there’s Lazio and all our physical and mental energies must go there.

The 27-year-old Bernardeschi has made 31 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1087 minutes. In that time, he has provided two assists.
