Serie A Preview: Lazio v Juventus

Serie A Preview: Lazio v Juventus

Antonio Conte's table-toppers aim to make it 11 games unbeaten in the league this season, but face a similarly in-form Lazio side, who have not been defeated in their last nine


PROBABLE LINEUPS

LAZIO

Marchetti
Konko, Stankevicius, Diakite, Radu
Brocchi, Ledesma, Lulic
Hernanes
Sculli, Klose
JUVENTUS

Buffon
Lichtsteiner, Bonucci, Barzagli, Chiellini
Marchisio, Pazienza
Pepe, Vidal, Vucinic
Matri

Lazio coach Edy Reja has a mounting injury list to contend with, as Simone Del Nero, Stefano Mauri, Javier Garrido, Albano Bizzarri, Andre Dias, Libor Kozak, Stephen Makinwa and Matuzalem have all been ruled out of this encounter.

It is possible that the former Napoli trainer will name an unchanged XI from last week's goalless draw with Napoli, despite Djibril Cisse's return to the fold. However, the Frenchman has endured a difficult start to his career in Italy, with just one goal since his arrival from Panathinaikos during the summer, and is expected to start on the bench.

Meanwhile for Juventus, Andrea Pirlo's muscular setback means that fellow summer recruit Michele Pazienza should get the nod to replace him in central midfield and feature alongside Claudio Marchisio and Arturo Vidal. However, the Italy playmaker will undergo a late fitness test prior to the match on Saturday.
