Lazio are set to play Juventus at the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday for their next Serie A fixture.

Lazio come into this game on the back of a 3-0 win over Stefano Colantuono's Salernitana in the league. Goals from star striker Ciro Immobile, veteran Spanish forward Pedro and Spanish midfielder Luis Alberto ensured victory for Maurizio Sarri's Lazio.

Juventus, on the other hand, beat ten-man Fiorentina 1-0. A late second-half goal from former Fiorentina star and Colombia international Juan Cuadrado sealed the deal for Massimiliano Allegri's Juventus. Fiorentina had Serbian centre-back Nikola Milenkovic sent off in the second-half.

Lazio vs Juventus Prediction

Lazio are 5th in Serie A, three points ahead of Juventus. Manager Maurizio Sarri won the league with Juventus during his single season at the club, and while Lazio might have different ambitions, Sarri will surely look to show his former club what they are missing.

Juventus, on the other hand, are 8th in the league, and have won only two of their last five league games. It has been a tough domestic season so far for Massimiliano Allegri's men.

A close match is on the cards, but Juventus should edge past Lazio.
