  1. ITALIAN SERIE A PREVIEW

SAT. 14TH OCTOBER FIXTURES

JUVENTUS VS LAZIO

On the 14th of October 2017, we shall expect a real football feast. The Allianz Stadium will be the arena of Juventus and Lazio battle.

The match of two fierce rivals thrills not only the Italians, but basically football supporters around the world.

Both teams have rich and traditions and history in European football. Both have won many titles, both on the Italian and European arenas.

Juventus and Lazio played 46 matches, from which Juventus won 24 clashes, Lazio 10 games and 12 matches ended with a draw.

Their last direct battle ended with a late 3-2 Lazio victory (the Supercoppa match on the 13th of August). Before that Juventus won 7 of their clashes in a row.

Last season witnessed a 0-1 Juventus? win in Rome and then two 2-0 victories on Allianz Stadium in Torino. In 2014 we had a draw in the Coppa Italia match. The last Lazio victory was in 2012, when they won 2-1 in Coppa Italia.

In serie A, most of the matches ended with a Juve victory, only a few with a draw and the last Romans victory was in the 2002/03 campaign.

Having all these in mind, it may be hard to imagine other result than Juve victory. However, Lazio has a really impressive start of the season, having great disposition both in Serie A and in Europa League.

This match can be describe as the battle of the strikers. On the one hand we have Paolo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain in Juve, who scored respectively 10 and 5 goals this season.
On the other Ciro Immobile, who is back in his incredible form, scoring on his own 15 goals.
Also Mandzukic and Marchisio and good form this season, having scored respectively 4 and 2 goals. Biancocelesti have Luis Alberto and Marco Parolo ? who both scored 3 goals this season.

Apart from the top scoring players, we shall not forget about Juve抯 pride ? its exquisitely solid defense, comprising Chiellini, Lichtsteiner, Benatia, Rugani or Alex Sandro and the goal guarded by the world-class Gianluigi Buffon.

Lazio may not have such world stars in their squad, however they have some solid players, renown in Italy and among some supporters abroad. This is the case with i.e. the Bosnian winger, Senad Lulic, Italian playmaker Marco Parolo or the Brazilian known from Liverpool ? Lucas Leiva. They have also one of the most talented Dutch defenders in last years ? Stefan de Vrij.
