Team News

  • Paul Pogba will replace the suspended Pirlo in the middle of the park, after the youngster was dropped for the previous match for arriving late to two training sessions.
  • Isla seems to have become Conte's top pick for the right side, so Lichtsteiner is going to sit on the bench against his former team.
  • Vucinic is back available and in good shape as he didn't play in the International midweek fixture against San Marino.
  • Coach Petkovic should field Radu in the left-back spot to make up for Lulic's absence in defence.
  • Gonzalez will be moved to the left side of the midfield as Mauri is suspended, so Brocchi will probably find space in the centre.
  • Candreva will play on the right-wing after playing for the national team against France in the same role.

Prediction

  • Juventus quickly overcame their defeat against Inter by scoring 10 in two consecutive matches and regaining a 4-point gap over their rivals in the table. Morale is high but the Bianconeri still have to face a tough period in their schedule, facing Lazio, Chelsea, Milan and then the derby against Torino.
  • Lazio wiped away the bad form they had before the derby by beating Roma in the cross-town clash. The Biancocelesti had to put in a huge effort on the pitch, but most of them have had almost a week to recover.
  • These two sides are currently playing the most interesting football in Serie A together with Fiorentina. Both of them will go for the victory, and Petkovic will probably try to match Juventus' midfield with five men as well. Expect a high tempo, some cards and the substitutes to have a great impact on the match.

  • Lazio win 0:1 FORZA GRANDE LAZIO

  • Brilliant Pirlo not only delivers the most accurate passes, but he times his suspension perfectly too. What a legend. We need him against Chelsea. This will be a tricky game for Juve, but not one to worry about it too much considering the CL game against Chelsea on Tuesday. Prediction: Juve win 1-0.

  • Pirlo out due to suspension, Pogba will play in Pilro's position. Pepe finally available. I think Juve win at least with one or two goals.

  • 1-0 Juve win is good enough!
