Lazio will host Juventus at the Stadio Olimpico on Serie A Matchday 29 as the battle for the European spots hots up in what is now the run-in of the 2022/23 season. The Aquile are second in the table with 55 points and are quite secure in the Champions League spots for the time being. They come into this match on the back of a 2-0 victory against Monza.
Meanwhile, the Bianconeri are seventh on 44 points albeit with a 15-point penalty. Despite their deduction, Juventus are just six points off a Champions League and are capable of capitalising on any slips from the teams above them. In their latest Serie A match, they defeated Hellas Verona 1-0 thanks to a goal from Moise Kean.
This encounter will be a great test for the defences of both sides. Lazio have conceded less than everyone else in the division, letting in just 19 goals, while Juventus have collected an impressive 17 clean sheets. It will certainly take something special to breach these backlines.
Lazio v Juventus: Predicted line-ups
Lazio should be close to full strength but star striker Ciro Immobile might not be fit enough to start despite coming off the bench against Monza. Meanwhile, Juventus still have Paul Pogba sidelined while both Federico Chiesa and Leonardo Bonucci are doubts for the match.
Although Adrien Rabiot will make his return from suspension, Kean received his fifth yellow card for the campaign against Hellas Verona and will miss out against the Biancocelesti.
Lazio predicted XI v Juventus (4-3-3): Provedel; Lazzari, Casale, Romagnoli, Hysaj; Milinkovic-Savic, Cataldi, Luis Alberto; Pedro, Felipe Anderson, Zaccagni.
Juventus predicted XI v Lazio (3-5-1-1): Szczesny; Gatti, Bremer, Danilo; De Sciglio, Fagioli, Locatelli, Rabiot, Kostic; Di Maria; Milik.
