With the rest of the Serie A table nipping at Juventus’ heels, it’s time for the bianconeri to get to work and get back to a winning streak. That means beating Lazio, and beating them as thoroughly as possible.
When last these teams met, back in August in Rome, Lazio won 1-0 thanks to a second-half goal from Sami Khedira. Of course, Khedira has been in dreadful form of late, and Lazio have rounded into some good form of their own, so this could well be a very very different game than that one was.
But it’s at the Juventus Stadium, and hopefully that can be enough to see them through. Hopefully Juventus don’t need to rely on that home field advantage to win, though; a legitimate top-shelf performance would be awfully nice right about now.
