La Vecchia Signora receives the Roman team in Turin and if they win they will stretch the difference with Inter by eight points, with four dates to go before the end of Series A.
Juventus accumulates three consecutive games without winning in the A series, with two draws and one defeat, but he is still the leader and this Monday he will receive Lazio in Turin for round 34. If he manages to keep all three points, the team of Maurizio Sarri will stretch the lead over eight units Inter, in the absence of only four dates for the closing of the league.
The Roman team was one of the candidates to fight for the title with Juve when the pandemic forced to stop the tournament, but when the competition resumed, the team led by Simone Inzaghi did not show the same level and only garnered a point in the last few four games he played.
Despite the bad present, Lazio remains expectant at the top of the table: it accumulates 69 points, eight fewer than Vecchia Signora, and this Monday’s game could be his last hope of fighting for the Scudetto.
In addition to hope, the team from the Italian capital has recent history as a source of confidence, since in its last two matches against Juventus it was victorious, both times 3-1. He first defeated him on matchday 15 of the current tournament and then in the final of the Italian Super Cup. “We have suffered this year against them, so we are only thinking about this match. Its importance speaks for itself,” said Sarri.
For the duel against Lazio, the Juve coach will once again be able to count on Juan Guillermo Cuadrado and Paulo Dybala, who missed the last match against Sassuolo due to accumulation of warnings.
Juventus: Szczesny; Cuadrado, Bonucci, Ligt, Sandro; Betancur, Pjanic, Rabiot, Costa, Dybala, Cristiano Ronaldo.
Lazio: Strakosha; Felipe, Acerbi, Radu, Lazzari, Savic, Parolo, Alberto, Jony, Caicedo, Immobile.
