In the second round of Italian Serie A, we will see the derby match Juventus v Lazio. This is a game of two offensive-minded sides, so we should see plenty of goals in this match.
Our Tips and Predictions For This Game:
These two teams try to score as much as they can in their each of their matches. Surprisingly, in their last five head-to-head matches only twice have we seen three or more goals. However, this time we believe they will both show their full potential and play a very open game. 888sport offers 1.68 odd for over 2.5 goals, and we would take it with a medium stake.
Juventus opened the season with a narrow 3-2 win away at Chievo Verona. The team showed signs of instability in its defensive line, and its attack didn’t work as planned. This will be the first Cristiano Ronaldo’s game in Turin and he will try to present himself in the best possible way in front of the home fans. Juventus has a clean bill of health, so they will be more than ready for this match.
Lazio was last season’s top-scoring team; the squad managed to score 89 goals in total with 44 goals away from home. Ciro Immobile, who scored an impressive 29 goals last season, also scored in the first round 2-1 loss to Napoli. The only doubtful player for this game is right wing-back Adam Marusic.
