Betting tips – Juventus vs Lazio – Italian Supercup
The 4th appearance in a row for “The Old Lady” in the Italian Supercup.
The game kicks off on Saturday, starting at 13:00, the duel between Juventus vs Lazio, counting for Italy’s Supercup and the game will be taking place in Shanghai, China.
Juventus was defeated in the past couple of weeks by both Dortmund and Marseille, with the score of 0-2, but managed to win against Lechia Gdansk with 2-1. One thing we shall neglect is that “The Old Lady” was a Champions League finalist, only being defeated by Barcelona in the final stage. Juventus is accustomed to the Supercup as they’ve played in it for the last 3 season. In 2012 and 2013 they won against Napoli, respectively Lazio, last year losing after penalty kicks to Rafa Benitez’ Napoli. In all of these 3 matches, at least 4 goals have been scored. This summer, Juventus signed Dybala and Zaza, names that are not really mainstream for everyone. Despite of this, the Italian champions spend 50 million Euros on the two. Mandzukic also arrived at Juventus this summer. On the other hand, the most important departures have been Pirlo, Tevez and Vidal,the 3 of them being also followed by Ogbonna.
Chiellini, Khedira and Morata will miss the Juventus vs Lazio duel due to injuries.
Juventus probable line-up (4-3-1-2): Neto – Lichsteiner, Rugani, Bonucci, Evra – Pogba, Sturaro, Marchisio-Pereyra – Zaza, Mandzukic
Lazio as well as Juventus, did not have quite a good summer campaign, losing to Vicenza, Anderlecht and Mainz. The Italians just found out their opponents for the Champions League play-off, as they are going to play the first leg on 18th and then on the 25th against Leverkusen. The most recent signing for the club has been the Serbian Milinkovic-Savic who came yesterday from Genk, in exchange of 9 million Euros. Another interesting transfer done this week is the one of Dutch player Kishna, who came from Ajax Amsterdam. There haven’t been any significant departures for Lazio, perhaps only Cavanda, who left for Trabzonspor.
Parolo and Lulic will miss the Juventus vs Lazio duel due to suspensions.
Lazio probable line-up (4-3-3): Marchetti – Basta, de Vrij, Mauricio/Gentiletti, St.Radu – Cataldi, Biglia, Onazi – Candreva, Djordjevic, Anderson
In the Supercup that we had talked about earlier, in the 2013-2014 season, Juventus cruised past Lazio with 4-0. Last season, the two teams met three times: twice in Serie A and once in Coppa Italia. In Seria A, Juventus won 3-0 away and 2-0 in front of their fans and winning the Coppa Italia final against Lazio 2-1 after extra-time. The last time that Lazio defeated Juventus was in January 2013, in Coppa Italia.
Lazio did not impose themselves over Juventus for quite some time now and we don’t expect them to do so in this game either. If the game will somehow head into overtime, we expect Juventus to handle the game the same way they did in the previous year. Therefore, we recommend as our Free betting tip the fact that Massimiliano Allegri’s team will win the trophy.
