Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Lazio Roma will host the 15th round of the Italian Serie A in Stadio Olimpico against Juventus on Friday evening. Juventus is showing some real progress in their last couple of games; the Old Lady lost only 1 of their last 12 games and is currently on a 4 in a row victory streak in the Serie A. Juventus is currently placed 5th and has 7 points less than leader Napoli and if the team is able to keep the current form might even get involved in the title race. Lazio Roma on the other hand is not consistent at all this season, the club from Roma is placed 10th and even lost their last game against Empoli 1-0. Previous games between both teams show that Juventus clearly is the stronger one. We predict Juventus to steal the 3 points out of Rome and continue their way back to the top of the table. Juventus player Dybala is showing his skills week in week out and can be considered as one of the best players in the Serie A
