Prediction and odds for the game: Lazio (9/5) vs Juventus (11/8)

We are backing the home win

When: Saturday 20 November 2021, Kick-off 17:00

Where: The Stadio Olimpico

On Saturday evening, Lazio and Juventus go head-to-head at the Stadio Olimpico, what promises to be one of the most fascinating games of the football weekend in Serie A.

Lazio

Maurizio Sarri’s team heads into this game on the back of four games without defeat in all competitions. In their last Serie A outing, the Biancocelesti hammered Salernitana 3-0 at the Stadio Olimpico. The recent results have taken the team from the Italian capital to within a point of the top-four and the Champions League spots.

The Eagles have turned the Stadio Olimpico into a real fortress of late, as they have not tasted defeat in 19 Serie A games on home soil. The fact that Lazio have won 17 of those undefeated 19 matches is even more impressive.

They have been prolific on home soil of late in Serie A, scoring at least twice in five of their previous six league outings at the Olimpico. One man who has played a key role in Lazio’s potency at home is star striker Ciro Immobile.

The 31-year-old, who started his career at Juventus, has scored six goals in as many home league appearances for Lazio. The Italian international is a fitness doubt for the game, but there is optimism that he will be fit to start against his first club.

Juventus

Things have been anything but plane sailing for the Bianconeri this season, as the team from Turin currently sit in eighth place in the Serie A table. They are currently four points adrift of the Champions League spots, which is the absolute minimum required of the team this season.

Max Allegri’s team have not been great of late. However, they did secure a much-needed win last time out, as they defeated old rivals Fiorentina 1-0 at the Allianz Stadium. The win ended a run of three league games without a win.

It is hard to know what you are going to get with Juventus on their travels in Serie A. The old lady of Italian football has won two, drawn and lost two of their previous six away games in the Italian top-flight.

Juventus have been vulnerable in defence, as the visitors have kept just one clean sheet in their previous 15 away matches in the Italian top-flight.

Conclusion

Although Juventus are the favourites to win this clash, Lazio are formidable on home form. We are backing Sarri’s team to record a victory because of that strong home form and the fact that Juventus are so unconvincing on their travels. The other we recommend is over 2.5 goals due to Lazio’s potent home attack and Juventus having a less than convincing defensive record on their travels of late.

Our Tips: We are backing the Lazio win at odds of 9/5 and/or over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 11/13. (All odds are taken from Bet365).
