Juventus vs Lazio: prediction for the Serie A match
Juventus had a terrible start to the season and missed their chance to join the title race. But Massimiliano Allegri's charges have significantly improved their performance in the second half of the season and managed to secure a Champions League berth.
The Old Lady is occupying the 4th line in the standings with 69 points. After a 1:2 defeat to Genoa in Serie A, Allegri's men lost to Inter Milan in the Coppa Italia final (2:4) on Wednesday.
Lazio clearly hoped to get a ticket to the Champions League. Maurizio Sarri's team is good enough, but sadly, the Eagles made too many mistakes in the first half of the season and couldn't catch up with the top four.
Currently, Lazio are in 5th place in the table with 62 points to their name, seven points behind Juventus - even if they win the last two games, they can't overtake the Old Lady. Last week, Sarri's side defeated Sampdoria (2:0).
This score was recorded in 3 of Juventus' last 4 games.
In the last 7 games of Juve, this bet won.
In the last 3 games, Lazio scored before halftime.
Earlier this week, Juventus lost to Inter in the final of Coppa Italia. That was an exhausting match, but today Allegri can use rotation. Lazio do not have the same depth and will struggle to put up a fight. We believe the hosts have a better chance to win.
Our prediction – Juventus to win
Juventus will strive to deliver a decent performance in the last home game of the season. Despite their success in recent games, Lazio are tired and we doubt they can overcome Juve, who have a stronger team on paper. We predict a narrow win for the Old Lady.
Second wager - Juventus to win by 1 goal
