Lazio - Juventus Betting Preview: Defiant Bianconeri to bounce back with a win in Rome

Antonio Conte's men are never more dangerous than after a defeat - expect them to follow up a cup exit against Roma with a victory this weekend
After crashing out of the Coppa Italia with a 1-0 defeat against Roma in midweek, Juventus will be hoping to get back to winning ways when they return to the Stadio Olimpico to take on Lazio on Saturday.

That result brought an end to Bianconeri's 13-match winning streak in domestic competition, but they are 3/4 (1.75) favourites with William Hill to bounce back with all three points here.

The visitors continued their resurgence under Edy Reja with a 3-2 away win over Udinese on Sunday despite going down to 10 men while trailing 1-0. The veteran coach is available at 19/5 (4.80) to secure yet another impressive result against the champions.

The visitors have not drawn a match in Italian competition since mid-September, but you can get odds of 5/2 (3.50) on the sides sharing the spoils this time out.

Roma’s cup victory on Tuesday will have been ungratefully received among Biancocelesti fans and not just because it saw their bitter local rivals book a place in the semi-finals.

The hosts will now have to take on a visiting team chomping at the bit to put defeat behind them, with a backlash surely inevitable in the capital.

Almost every disappointing result has been followed up by a convincing league display from Antonio Conte’s men this season, defeating AC Milan and Napoli after underwhelming draws in their unsuccessful Champions League campaign and reacting to their eventual elimination by thrashing Sassuolo 4-0.

This winning mentality is the cornerstone of Conte’s relentless success during his time at the helm and those 3/4 (1.75) odds are not to be missed on his team taking out their frustrations on a side they have beaten 4-0 and 4-1 already this season.

However, with Reja having injected Lazio with a greater resilience since returning to the dugout, odds of 18/5 (4.60) are well worth considering on Juventus being forced to wait until after half-time to secure all three points, as they have in four of their last five Serie A games on the road.
