Juventus vs Lazio: Recent History

Juventus started the season in disastrous fashion under Massimiliano Allegri but started to turn things around last month. The Bianconeri may have suffered relegation from the Champions League but they’ve won their last five league outings and have rapidly started to climb the Serie A table. 

Lazio started to wobble over the last few weeks following the injury to Ciro Immobile but turned things around in their Derby della Capitale clash against Roma last weekend, edging out a 1-0 win. Maurizio Sarri’s side followed that up with another win over Monza in the mid-week outing, giving them confidence ahead of their final game of the calendar year.

Last season, Lazio suffered a 2-0 loss at home to Juventus and picked up a 2-2 draw in the penultimate game of the campaign in Turin. 

Juventus vs Lazio: Team News

Allegri still has a number of absences to contend with as he prepares to close out the year with Juventus. Mattia De Sciglio, Paul Pogba, Kaio Jorge and Samuel Iling-Junior are all sidelined with injury, and Manuel Locatelli, Weston McKennie, Federico Chiesa and Dusan Vlahovic are all also in doubt. Alex Sandro is unavailable following his red card in the win over Hellas Verona. 

Sarri will be unable to count on the injured Manuel Lazzari and Mattia Zaccagni, but will be happy to see Ciro Immobile return to the squad. 

Expected Starting Lineups

Allegri isn’t set to take any major risks with his Juventus squad for their final game before the break, relying on a mixture of trusted options like Leonardo Bonucci, Juan Cuadrado and Adrien Rabiot as well as young talents like Fabio Miretti and Nicolo Fagioli.

The major news for Sarri is the return of Immobile, who is set to make his first start in almost a month following a recent hamstring injury. Luis Alberto will be benched in favour of Matias Vecino and Elseid Hysaj will fill in for the injured Lazzari on the right side of the defence.

Juventus (3-5-1-1): Szczesny; Danilo, Bonucci, Bremer; Cuadrado, Fagioli, Locatelli, Rabiot, Kostic; Miretti; Milik.

Lazio (4-3-3): Provedel; Hysaj, Casale, Romagnoli, Marusic; Milinkovic-Savic, Cataldi, Vecino; Pedro, Immobile, Felipe Anderson.
