Lazio vs Juventus Preview and Prediction – April 23, 2024

Juventus holds a 2-0 lead going into the second leg of the Coppa Italia semifinal against Lazio on Tuesday night.

Maintaining their lead would secure Juventus a spot in the final.

Match Preview

In Turin, Juventus broke the deadlock in the second half against Lazio, scoring twice within 14 minutes through Federico Chiesa and Dusan Vlahovic in the 50th and 64th minutes, securing a 2-0 victory.

Despite Lazio outshooting Juventus 11-9, none of their shots found the target. With 60% possession, Lazio failed to convert it into goals.

Can Lazio reverse the semifinal outcome? Home advantage may aid the Rome-based team, but coach Igor Tudor’s squad needs to elevate their performance.

Since Tudor took over in mid-March after Maurizio Sarri’s departure, Lazio’s Serie A performance has improved, currently seventh in the league, just three points off the top five, with four wins in their last five games.

Head-to-Head:

In their 75 encounters since 1993, Juventus has dominated Lazio with 41 wins, 14 draws, and 19 losses, scoring 122 goals compared to Lazio’s 79.

However, Juventus’s recent struggles away from home might benefit Lazio. Juventus failed to win any of their last five away matches.

Lazio’s history against Juventus at the Stadio Olimpico hasn’t been favorable, with 11 wins, 6 draws, and 17 losses in their last 34 encounters, scoring 37 goals against Juventus’s 42.

Team News & Updates:

With 17 goals this season, Dusan Vlahovic leads Juventus in scoring.

Banned from European competitions, Juventus is focused on Serie A and the Coppa Italia, with Vlahovic as their top scorer.

Sitting third in Serie A, Juventus sees the cup competition as their primary chance for silverware this season, with Vlahovic being their sole scorer with ten or more goals.

Ciro Immobile remains Lazio’s top scorer, but at 34, his impact is waning, with only ten goals across all competitions this season.

Prediction & Analysis:

Considering Juventus’ advantage from the first leg and their recent form in cup competitions, they are favored to secure a spot in the final.

Lazio, playing at home, will seek to overturn the deficit, but Juventus’ defensive solidity may prove too difficult to breach.

Our prediction leans towards another win for Juventus, with a narrow 1-0 victory, sealing their place in the Coppa Italia final.
