LAZIO lie fifth in Serie A and face a less certain future. They one point behind Fiorentina and one point above Inter Milan but have had a poor 2013.

They've won just just four out of the 13 matches they played and what depresses their fans is the fact they have lost six of these games.

Lazio missed an excellent opportunity to triumph in the Rome derby as Hernanes missed from the spot when his side were already a goal in front.

The Biancocelesti were then eliminated from Europe, losing 3-1 on aggregate to Fenerbahce, so they really cannot afford another setback.

Lazio are missing key players because of suspension including Giuseppe Biava, Stefan Radu and Senad Lulic while Konko, Andre Dias and Bruno Pereirinha are unlikely to be fit in time for the clash. Experienced Albanian Lorik Cana is likely to partner Michael Ciani in Lazio’s central defence. In attack, the return of Miroslav Klose from injury will be a major boost for Lazio.

Juventus sit secured with a nine-point buffer at the top of the Serie A. They have 71 points from 31 matches. With just seven matches remaining in the league it will take a miracle to prevent Juventus from winning the Serie A crown.

The much-hyped clash against Bayern Munich finally turned out to be a damp squib for Juventus as the club barely mustered a fight before exiting after losing both legs by the same 2-0 margin.

Giorgio Chiellini injured himself during training and is expected to be out for a couple of weeks. Federico Peluso is likely to be a direct replacement for Chiellini on the left side of the three-man defence after he sat out the last two matches. Arturo Vidal and Stephan Lichtsteiner are back from a European suspension while Giovinco is still injured.

Juventus are undefeated in 32 of their last 34 away matches in Serie A. The Old Lady have not been beaten at the Stadio Olimpico in the league in the previous seven meetings with the last two encounters finishing 1-0 to Juventus.

Probable line-ups

Lazio (4-1-4-1): Marchetti, Gonzalez, Cana, Ciani, Stankevicius, Ledesma, Candreva, Onazi, Hernanes, Ederson, Klose.

Juventus (3-5-2): Buffon, Barzagli, Bonucci, Peluso, Lichtsteiner, Vidal, Pirlo, Marchisio, Asamoah, Vucinic, Matri.
