Juventus vs Lazio – Betting Preview
In the Coppa Italia quarterfinal matchup on Thursday, Juventus will face Lazio at the Allianz Stadium.
Raffaele Palladino’s Monza defeated Juventus 2-0 in the league before to this match. Attacker Patrick Ciurria and Portuguese striker Dany Mota both scored in the first half to give Monza the victory.
Juventus are now in a bad situation. Massimiliano Allegri’s team has dropped to 13th place in the league after receiving a 15-point deduction, and it is clear that the players’ morale has been affected by the decision. Before the ruling, they had put together a respectable run of form.
After losing their last three league games, Allegri exacerbated anxiety by acknowledging that Juventus might be in a relegation fight. As a result, the Coppa Italia can be seen in a variety of ways: as an obstacle or as a potential opportunity to bring some good fortune to what has been a miserable season thus far.
Contrarily, Lazio and Vincenzo Italiano’s Fiorentina drew 1-1 in league play.
A goal from Argentine forward Nicolas Gonzalez for Fiorentina in the second half offset a goal from Lazio centre back Nicolo Casale in the first half.
They are third in Serie A, and no doubt that they have benefited from Juventus’ slide down the standings, along with many other teams. They will try to preserve their current standing in the league, and qualify for the Champions League next season as they are 15 points behind the league’s top team, Napoli.
Lazio will be the favourite to finish in the top four, but teams like Atalanta, AC Milan, and Roma are very closely vying for those spots!
