Lazio vs Juventus - Competition: Coppa Italia
Lazio Rome team enter this match off the back of a 2-2 draw with Bologna in Italian Serie A at the weekend. Although they are unbeaten in the last seven games, the Biancocelesti, who beat Inter a couple of weeks ago, are 9th in the Serie A table with only 28 points in 20 matches. In the previous Coppa Italia round, the Eagles had to come from behind as they were pushed hard by fellow Serie A side Udinese in a 2-1 success.
Stefano Pioli should prefer Klose rather than Filip Djordjevic as central forward, while Felipe Anderson and Candreva are likely to play out wide. Dusan Basta, Federico Marchetti and Santiago Gentiletti all miss out. They have joined the likes of De Vrij, Kishna and Morrison on the sidelines.
Juventus have recorded an incredible 11 wins in the last 11 matches in all domestic competitions and they now sit 2nd in the Serie A standings, just two points behind league leaders Napoli. Their most recent league match saw the Old Lady hammering 4-0 Udinese. In the Coppa Italia, the Bianconeri eased past Torino with a 4-0 victory in the last round.
In-form Paulo Dybala should be rested by Massimiliano Allegri as the Italian manager should play with Morata and Zaza up front. Paul Pogba is expected to start after he was benched last time out in Udine. The likes of Norberto Neto, Martin Caceres and Juan Cuadrado are all expected to be in the starting XI. Andrea Barzagli is doubtful and he will be monitored ahead of the kick-off, while Roberto Pereyra and Mario Lemina are both sidelined with injury.
Juventus team have won 2-0 their last encounter with Lazio Rome last month thanks to an own goal from Santiago Gentiletti and one from Dybala. Having also defeated the Biancocelesti in the 2014/2015 Coppa Italia final, the Bianconeri clearly hold a serious psychological advantage over the opposition.
Probable lineups:
Lazio: Berisha – Konko, Bisevac, Hoedt, Radu – Cataldi, Onazi, Lulic – Candreva, Matri, Anderson.
Juventus: Neto – Caceres, Rugani, Chiellini – Cuadrado, Pogba, Sturaro, Hernanes, Evra – Zaza, Morata.
