The JUV vs LAZ match preview –
The second string of matches for the Italian Serie A start, as Juventus take on Lazio in what is expected to be a feisty encounter between the two heavyweights of the country.
Juventus started off their campaign to defend the title with a narrow win over Chievo. They had work harder than they expected against a side that caused a lot of problems. This game also marked the first start in a competitive game for Cristiano Ronaldo, who has publicly claimed he wants to win all the trophies in Italy as well. The upcoming matchup will set the precedence for the season to come as Lazio are a strong side, and if Juventus beat them handily, the entire Serie A will be wary of a similar mauling.
Meanwhile, Lazio had to face a disappointing defeat at home to Napoli. It was evident that they are a strong team, but in a battle of inches, the luck didn’t favour them. Regardless, the team shouldn’t let their heads be bogged down because of the result, and focus on the rest of the season where if they perform consistently, they can be considered a serious threat to the title.
