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.
