25′ 2 – 0 Leonardo Bonucci was on the scoresheet as well minutes later as Juventus looked to run away with their third consecutive Coppa Italia title.
Lazio has been pretty inconsistent in the recent years and they started off the new season with another cracking game where having gone to a 3-0 lead by half hour they somehow allowed Atalanta a way back into the game before sealing the three points narrowly. The defensive display won’t please Simone Inzaghi who was handed the job after Stefano Pioli was sacked in the summer.
Juventus on the other hand left it late against Fiorentina when Italian record signing, Gonzalo Higuain came on as substitute to score the winner in 75th minute of the game. Juventus has strengthen their squad after the departure of Paul Pogba and they are in pole position to land unsettled James Rodriguez from Real Madrid.

Possible Starting lineups: Juventus are likely to hand first starts for Pjanic and Higuain against Lazio while Massimiliano Allegri will keep his trusted 3-5-2 formation. Dani Alves and Patrice Evra might as full backs with Pijanic, Khadira and Hernanes playing in central roles. Argentina duo of Dybala and Higuain to start upfront.
Lazio uses similar system and we might see a very tight game where both teams canceling each other out for most part and 1 goal might just be enough to seal the win. having said that, Lazio rely heavily on their dynamic attacking options and they will have to take the game to Juventus if they were to win three points on Saturday.
