Juventus F.C.

Game Time Thread: Juventus vs. Lazio

Just like when Juventus were supposed to face Napoli a little over a month ago, today’s opposition won’t be close to full strength due to recent positive coronavirus tests.

What was looked as the showdown between two Scudetto contenders about 11 months ago is now a team trying to get back on track and the defending Italian champions still trying to fully establish its new identity under its brand new coach.

If it does happen, though, and Juventus are able to jump over Sassuolo and into second place before sitting down for Sunday night dinner, then there’s quite the situational improvement based on where things were just a few weeks ago.

Juventus starting XI (3-4-1-2): Szczesny; Demiral, Bonucci, Danilo; Cuadrado, Rabiot, Bentancur, Frabotta; Kulusevski; Morata, Ronaldo

Lazio starting XI (3-5-2): Reina; Luiz Felipe, Acerbi, Radu; Marusic, Milinkovic-Savic, Cataldi, Luis Alberto, Fares; Muriqi, Correa

Lazio bench: Furlanetto, Alia, Patric, Pereira, D. Anderson, Armini, Hoedt, Parolo, Caicedo, Lazzari, Moro, Akpa Akpro
