Juventus vs Lazio: Recent History

Juventus are currently in a state of disarray both on and off the pitch. The club were recently handed a 15-point deduction by the FIGC court for falsifying capital gains through inflated player transfer values, a penalty that saw them plummet down the Serie A table.

On the pitch, Massimiliano Allegri’s side have not picked up a win in their last three league outings, losing to Monza and Napoli and only managing a 3-3 draw with Atalanta. The Old Lady sit 15 points behind the top four spots, making a Champions League finish unlikely.

Lazio have started to develop some consistency after a slow start to 2023 and wins over Sassuolo, Bologna and Milan gave Maurizio Sarri’s side some much needed confidence.

A 1-1 draw with Fiorentina was a result of fatigue but the team will be hungry to bounce back in the cup, which has become something of a speciality in Rome in recent years.

Juventus vs Lazio: Team News

Juventus are without Leonardo Bonucci and Arkadiusz Milik, both of whom are out with muscle injuries. Paul Pogba is unlikely to start as he continues breaking into the first team following his serious knee issue.

The only absence Sarri has to contend with is defender Stefan Radu, sidelined with a muscle issue. Ciro Immobile may return to the starting lineup after his recent hamstring injury, having come off the bench in the draw with Fiorentina.

Expected Starting Lineups

Juventus will be hoping for a shot at the trophy this season and so are expected to field their strongest possible XI, with first team regulars like Angel Di Maria, Dusan Vlahovic and Adrien Rabiot all expected to start. Federico Chiesa will likely come off the bench in the second half.

There are also unlikely to be any surprises for Lazio, with stars like Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Immobile and Mattia Zaccagni all set to kick off the clash.

Juventus (3-5-2): Szczesny; Danilo, Bremer, Alex Sandro; Cuadrado, Fagioli, Locatelli, Rabiot, Kostic; Di Maria, Vlahovic.

Lazio (4-3-3): Maximiano; Lazzari, Patric, Romagnoli, Marusic; Milinkovic, Cataldi, Luis Alberto; Felipe Anderson, Immobile, Zaccagni.
