Lazio vs Juventus

by Caroline on Serie A

On Saturday 22nd of November, after the International games pause, Lazio will host the leader in Serie A Juventus at Stadio Olimpico in Rome. The game of the 12th round in the Italian league will be played at 21:45 CET.

This will be the second time this season when Juventus visits the capital Rome. Previously they have won against their biggest opponents for the title this season – AS Roma in Torino, after 3 penalties and late drama with the final score of 3-2.

Situation in the table

The Old Lady takes the first place with 28 points and 9 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. In their last game they destroyed Parma with 7-0 at the Juventus Stadium. The goals were scored by Fernando Llorente (2), Carlos Tevez (2), Alvaro Morata (2) and Stephan Lichsteiner (1). The Argentinian striker Tevez is top goal scorer of the team and in Seria A sharing the first place with Jose Maria Callejon from Napoli. The good form of Carlos Tevez and Paul Pogba is crucial for The Zebras this season. It has to be said that Juventes looked to be more solid under the management of Antonio Conte, but he left just before the beginning of the season to take the Italy National football team and was replaced by Massimiliano Allegri.
The Roman Eagles take the 5th position in Seria A, the last position that allows them to play in Europe in the next season. Lazio has won 19 points after the first 11 games with 6 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses. Lazio has the second best attack in the league. They have scored 21 times and conceded 13 while Juventus scored 25 and conceded only 4.

Long back in the history

The last time Lazio took three points against Juventus was on 6th of December 2003 in Rome, after a 2-0 win. Since then, both teams played 19 times while Juve won 13 of the games and there were 6 draws.
Early this Saturday, Roma, who are considered the biggest opponents of Juventus for the title this season, and only 3 points behind, will face Atalanta in Bergamo. Even if they won Roma will remain second because of the goal difference and their direct match against The Old Lady early this season.
