In this post tips and review of Juventus - Lazio, the Italian Cup Final scheduled on Wednesday evening in Rome, Olimpico Stadium.
JUVENTUS - LAZIO
This is a very interesting final:
Juventus, winning the Serie A and reaching the Champions League final, has abundantly proved to be the best italian team, while Lazio has showed very exciting performances throughout the second part of the italian league, adopting a very offensive gamestyle and scoring really a lot, especially in its home matches.
Juventus has always won when has been forced to win, showing the balls in difficult matches such as in Dortmund (0-3 in the second leg of the last 16 stage of Champions League and in Florence, in the second leg of the semifinal of Italian Cup after the 1-2 loss in Turin).
Juventus has surely much more experience than Lazio to face this kind of match.
Moreover, lots of its best players have rested in the last round of Serie A, while Lazio's ones had to be in the pitch in Genova, against Sampdoria, since Pioli's team is still fighting to reach the second place.
This match will be held in the Olimpico Stadium, in Rome, where Lazio plays its home games and this is surely a big advantage for the Biancocelesti.
In the 2 Serie A clashes between these teams, Juventus had the best twice: 3-0 in Turin and 0-2 in Rome. Juventus has showed to be able to neutralize Lazio's manouvers with ease and also in this occasion we see Juventus favourite for the final win, even if Morata and Marchisio are banned.
In any case this is a match where goals should not be missing... A good alternative to the sign 1 are BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE and OVER 2.5.
JUVENTUS: (4-3-1-2) Storari; Lichtsteiner, Bonucci,
Chiellini, Evra; Pogba, Pirlo, Vidal; Pereyra; Llorente, Tevez.
LAZIO (4-2-3-1): Marchetti; Basta, De Vrij, Mauricio, Radu; Parolo, Ledesma; Lulic, Candreva, Felipe Anderson; Klose.
