Former Italian forward Alessandro Del Piero reflected on Lazio’s loss to Juventus.

Lazio came into its fixture against Juventus as the heavy underdogs in the match. Over the opening stages of the match, Lazio played more like the favorites as it took an early 1-0 lead. But from there, Juventus proved why it is the reigning Serie A champion as it scored three goals to put the match away.

Del Piero spoke to Sky Sport (via Cittaceleste) about several factors that played a role in Lazio’s lowly showing.

I thought back to the games I played, when Juve always suffered so much on a physical level. Lazio was splendid in the first 20 minutes, then they faded away. The Bianconeri were better on a physical level.

In recent years, the Biancocelesti have beaten the Bianconeri the most times. They’ve shown that they’re the only team that can play them in a shootout.

Hoedt made a mistake on Rabiot’s goal. You have to decide whether to stay on Morata or to follow the Frenchman. It is a mistake that cannot be allowed at certain levels…

Lazio still has an opportunity to make a late push for a top-four spot in the Serie A standings.
