Juventus will be looking to right the ship bright and early at lunchtime on Sunday afternoon against Lazio after an embarrassing performance against Fiorentina. With the three points dropped against La Viola, the other teams start to look not-so-far behind in the rear-view mirror.

One of these teams chasing Juventus is Lazio, who currently sit in fourth place, and are five points behind Juventus at the top of the table. Juventus does have a game in hand, however, but games in hand are only an advantage if you get points from them.

Unavailable for this match will be Mehdi Benatia at AFCON, Mario Lemina was injured in warmup against Burkina Faso at AFCON, and Dani Alves remains out injured. Alex Sandro is unavailable due to yellow card accumulation. Returning to availability is Stephan Lichtsteiner, whose suspension is over. By the way, he’s a guy that might have an extra edge to his game playing against Lazio.

The game after this one is a Coppa Italia quarterfinal match against Milan on Wednesday night. All things considered, who would you like to see start against Lazio on Sunday afternoon? Remember, this is who you think should start, not who you expect Max Allegri to pick.
