Lazio vs Juventus Betting Tips
Juventus and Lazio are currently at the 2nd and 3rd place in Serie A respectively. Juventus, who are still without a defeat this season are very motivated to get back to the top of the table ASAP. The failure to beat Sassuolo at home cost them points and allowed Inter to leapfrog them. The good news for Juve fans is that the point difference is minimal and if Juve start winning again, the chance that they’ll get back to the 1st place are pretty high.
But, getting back in the winning run won’t be easy for this team. It’s because they’re traveling to the Italian capital to play against one of the most in-form teams not only in Italy but on the entire continent. Lazio is the side we’re talking about. This team has won their last seven Serie A matches.
Still, this doesn’t mean the Sky Blues from Rome are unbeatable. They did get defeated on two occasions by Celtic in the Europa League. And the games they won in the Italian championship were those against fairly weaker sides than them. They did beat AC Milan, Fiorentina, and Torino, which can be thought of as heavyweight teams.
But, when they played teams from near the top of the table, they failed to win too many points. Inter beat them, while they played draws with Atalanta and AS Roma. Arguably their biggest challenge of the first half of the season is the one scheduled for this Saturday. That’s when the mighty Juve are coming to Olimpico.
Lazio need to be afraid of Juventus as they lose each of their previous three meetings, two of which were played in Rome. An interesting fact about those games is that Lazio players didn’t score a single goal – the only goal Juve conceded was an own goal. Considering that Lazio are the second most scoring team in the league right now, this trend might end on Saturday. Still, even if Lazio manage to score, they probably won’t be able to keep a clean sheet.

Lazio Form and Latest News
Even though it’s been a while since they played against a heavyweight team such as Juventus, there’s no denying that Lazio are in a good form. And that definitely gives their players a lot of confidence. This is why they look more than capable of scoring on Saturday. And the guy who seems the most likely to score is Ciro Immobile, the current top-scorer of Serie A. But, if they manage it, Juve will probably have to go all-in and that means a lot of goals on both ends.
Juventus Form and Latest News
There were talks about the form and fitness of Cristiano Ronaldo, but the number 7 seems to be in the right mood to destroy the opponent. After failing to score even a single goal for Juventus in November, he finally put an end to his goal drought on the first day of December. And that could mean that he’s about to start to score much, much more.
