Lazio vs. Juventus Predictions and Preview

Lazio have won just two of their last nine matches in Serie A this campaign – a run of form which has seen them slip to sixth in the standings.

Simone Inzaghi’s side now sit two points and two places off a top four spot having previously won seven of nine going into their recent slump in form.

Juventus are in imperious form this season – they have dropped just four points from their opening 20 rounds of Serie A fixtures and sit nine points clear at the top of the league.

The only blotch on Max Allegri’s side record were draws against Genoa and Atalanta earlier in the campaign, but his side have won all other of their 18 league games this season.

It is not surprising that it is the away side who are clear favourites to win this encounter at odds of 17/20, with Lazio priced at 7/2 and the draw available at 5/2.

These fixtures tend to produce few goals with nine going in across the last five meetings in Serie A, so Under 1.5 goals at 11/4 appears to be a solid bet with under 2.5 at 8/11.

A ‘double chance’ on Lazio to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 9/10 while a Juve win/draw outcome is at 1/5.

If you fancy the away side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 21/10 while Juve to win to nil, as has been the case in four of the past six meetings, is at 15/8.
