JUV vs LAZ Dream11 Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Enduring its worst period in the league, a dismal Juventus side looks to wrench out of the rut it finds itself in.
Winless in three clashes in Serie A, a lacklustre Juventus side is seeing its credentials as this season’s title be slowly damaged. While there is little doubt of the fact that the club will eventually end up with yet another title in its kitty, the manner in which this title win is set to come about is hardly winning people.
Fortuitous for their competitors to not capitalise on their slump in the league, Juventus continue to hold a five point lead atop of the league standings ahead of their imminent tie against Lazio. With Inter Milan and Atalanta both managing to only draw their fixtures this gameweek, a win today would all but help Juventus put dust over any doubts being casted over their ability to win the 2019-20 season of the marquee league.
And it’s a peril the club will want to iron out at the earliest play as the pressure keeps piling on the side. Sarri in particular has had to bear the brunt of the naysayers with people questioning his gameplan and a languid brand of football that has seen the club totter its way towards the glistening trophy.
While we are on Juventus horrid decline in form, Lazio’s wayward spiral can’t be ignored. After being the talk of the two back in March, the club has failed to win a single of its last four matches with the club only managing to curb a three match losing spree the last time around with a draw.
Clobbered by everyone they have encountered in the course of the last couple of weeks, a skewed Lazio side are set to be thwarted by Juventus with the home side taking a further step towards the trophy.

JUV vs LAZ Dream11 Picks
Lazio’s Thomas Strakosha will be ingrained in our Dream 11 side as the goal-keeper for the forthcoming tie. The player showed immense tenacity to help pull out a torrid defence from a deep hole the last time around with his slew of saves helping his side to a 0-0 draw.
Despite being battered in their last three encounters in the defensive ambit, Juventus continue to remain the most frugal defence in the league. This is a side which has let in a meagre 35 goals and with its main names back for this clash, we envision Juventus putting in a defensive display reminiscent of their showings before the turn of Coronavirus.
What further stokes this narrative is Lazio’s horrendous attacking form at the moment with the side’s laxity seeing the side fail to score in three of its last five ties. Their bereaved feet will get cold feet infront of Alex Sandro, Juan Cuadrado and Leandro Bonucci to see us instil the trio in our Dream 11 framework.
Despite flickering defensively to be embroiled in a quagmire, Juventus have still managed to fare off decently well in their attacking dockets. And Roderigo Bentacur has played a quiessential role in ensuring the side’s attacking docket has managed to function to the best of its capabilities with his 7 assists helping set up crucial goals for the side.
He’s joined by Miralem Pjanic, someone whose ball handling abilities have kept the ball moving quickly in midfield for the club. Lazio will on the other hand see us make four assist man Sergej Milinkovic-Savic our first of the two picks with wingback Manuel Lazzari pairing up with him owing to his dual toned nature as a player.
Sitting atop of the scoring tally, Ciro Immobile is going to eb extra motivated when he takes to the middle today. The Lazio man is striving for the league’s top scorer prize, one he’ll be looking to move step closer as he looks to add to his 29 goals and 8 assists today.
Breathing down his neck with the 28 goals, Cristiano Ronaldo will on the other hand be wanting to leave Ciro behind him for the first time this season. The Juventus player is linked up with Paolo Dybala who has accrued the 11 goals for the club with the two spearheading the side’s attacking gameplan.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The 28 goals for Ronaldo see him lead our side out as the captain while Dybala is the vice-captain.
