Lazio vs JuventusSerie A, KO: 17:00 Nov 20, 2021, Stadio Olimpico
Lazio host Juventus in an Italian Serie A fixture on Saturday with both teams seeking a spark for their campaign. Both teams appear evenly matched at the moment and separated by just three points, they are likely to cancel each other out.
Lazio claimed a 3-0 victory over newly promoted Salernitana in their previous Serie A fixture. They took a two-goal lead into the break thanks to efforts from Ciro Immobile and Pedro while Luis Alberto added the third in the second half.
After struggling to get some traction on their campaign, things appear to be getting better for Lazio in recent weeks. They are unbeaten in four of their last five Serie A matches and are up to fifth on the table, just one point behind fourth placed Atalanta.
One problem for manager Maurizio Sarri is that Lazio still appear unable to maintain their discipline at the back. They conceded four goals against Verona and twice failed to hold on to the lead in a 2-2 draw with Atalanta.
Juventus are also attempting to build some momentum and travel to Lazio off the back of a 1-0 victory over Fiorentina in their previous fixture. After labouring for much of the encounter, they found the breakthrough in added time thanks to Juan Cuadrado.
It has been a difficult start to the season for Juventus, who find themselves in an unfamiliar eight position after 12 matches. However, Massimiliano Allegri’s men have a chance to rise to fifth place if results go their way this weekend.
Like Lazio, Juventus have also struggled defensively this season and have kept just one clean sheet in their last four Serie A matches.
