Lazio well-placed to beat Juventus in Serie A - get fantasy tips and predictions
Lazio (LAZ) will host Juventus (JUV) in Matchweek 13 of the Serie A 2021-22 season at the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday, November 17. The game will kick off at 10:30 PM IST.
LAZ vs JUV Dream11 Prediction
Lazio sit fifth on the points table with 21 points from 12 matches, and are likely to maintain their position. Maurizio Sarri’s men head into the fixture fresh from a 3-0 success at newcomers Salernitana, and are well-placed to extend their unbeaten league form at home against Juventus.
Juventus have made an indifferent start to their Serie A 2021-22 campaign and currently find themselves eighth in the standings with 18 points. Massimiliano Allegri’s Bianconeri are still reeling from Cristiano Ronaldo’s summer departure from the club on the attacking front. They haven’t been at their best at the back either and arrive at the Stadio Olimpico with just one clean sheet on the road in the league.
LAZ vs JUV Dream11 team tips for Serie A 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
Serie A top-scorer Ciro Immobile picked up a calf injury last week and thus, Pedro is expected to lead the line for Lazio against Juventus. The veteran Spaniard has registered four goals and two assists for Lazio in 12 games, and will possibly play as a false nine alongside Raul Moro and Felipe Anderson out wide on the flanks.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Sergej Milinković-Savić is expected to dictate terms from the midfield engine room in the Lazio vs Juventus clash. The Serbian midfielder has accounted for three goals and four assists this season, marginally better than Juventus’ Manuel Locatelli (two goals and two assists). Fantasy players can put their money on Milinković-Savić to put on a match-winning display this weekend.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Both Lazio and Juventus have conceded 10-plus goals in the Serie A this term, meaning there is no defender that’s an outright favourite for this position. However, it is worth noting that Matthijs de Ligt could be an asset, given his attribute as a goal-scoring defender besides his defensive stability at the back.
When it comes to goalkeepers, Wojciech Szczesny is the first-choice pick. The Juventus custodian may have kept just two clean sheets in the league this term but the former Arsenal star has managed 24 saves in the competition, giving him the edge over Lazio’s Pepe Reina.
LAZ vs JUV probable playing XI
LAZ playing XI (probable): Pepe Reina (goalkeeper), Stefan Radu, Luiz Felipe, Francesco Acerbi (captain), Elseid Hysaj, Lucas Leiva, Luis Alberto, Sergej Milinković-Savić, Raul Moro, Pedro, Felipe Anderson
JUV playing XI (probable): Wojciech Szczesny (goalkeeper), Juan Cuadrado, Leonardo Bonucci (captain), Matthijs de Ligt, Alex Sandro, Arthur, Manuel Locatelli, Weston McKennie, Adrien Rabiot, Alvaro Morata, Federico Chiesa
