Juventus can win again at home against a Lazio side conceding plenty of goals. Cristiano Ronaldo is in great form and backed in the goal scoring markets.
Juventus find themselves 7 points behind Inter Milan in Serie A. The Old Lady have been very strong at home, winning 2+ goals in 7 of their last 9 matches at Allianz Stadium where they have kept six consecutive clean sheets. Andrea Pirlo’s side won 3-0 at home against Crotone before a 1-1 draw at Hellas Verona. Juventus returned to Torino with a 3-0 win against Spezia. Alvaro Morata came off the bench to open the scoring with Federico Chiesa and Ronaldo wrapping it up. Juventus central defenders Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini are injured with Matthijs de Ligt doubtful. Left back Gianluca Frabotta is suspended. Midfielder Arthur, winger Juan Cuadrado and attacker Paulo Dybala are also injured.
Lazio won five straight matches in January but have lost four of their last seven in all competitions. They lost 3-1 at Inter Milan before a 1-0 home win against Sampdoria. Simone Inzaghi’s side suffered a humbling 4-1 home loss against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League. Their defending was atrocious and they can have no complaints. Lazio’s last match was a 2-0 defeat at Bologna. Ciro Immobile saw a penalty saved in a match where they had 2.50-1.30 expected goals. Lazio centre backs Stefan Radu and Luiz Felipe are injured alongside winger Manuel Lazzari.
Juventus have a 95-46 advantage against Lazio with 43 draws in 184 matches. Juventus have been very strong at home and can beat a Lazio side conceding plenty of goals. It makes sense to stick with Ronaldo in the goalscoring markets.
