Juventus vs Lazio predictions and betting tips ahead of the Italian Super Cup, kicking off at 7:45pm on Sunday, 13th August 2017. Can the Old Lady add even more silverware to their glittering cabinet?
Juventus landed another domestic double last season, while they were 90 minutes away from European glory. Can they bounce back from their Champions League final defeat when they face Lazio in Rome on Sunday?
Juventus are still favourites for the Serie A title despite losing Leonardo Bonucci this summer, and they’ll be expecting to get off to a strong start here. They’re well priced to beat Lazio at 17/20 with BetFred, which seems like a big price. Given that Juve have won 13 of their last 14 meetings with Lazio – winning the other in extra time – we are backing the Old Lady to take the points in our first Juventus vs Lazio prediction.
Our second Juventus vs Lazio prediction is for mercurial Argentine Paulo Dybala to grab a goal. In 11 meetings with Lazio in his career he’s scored seven times, which suggests that he’ll trouble them in the Super Cup. Despite that, he can be backed at 6/4 with William Hill to score any time, which is too good not to include in our betting tips here.
Juventus have no major injury concerns here, so they should field their strongest possible side.
Juventus haven’t conceded in their last seven matches against Lazio.
Dybala’s form against Lazio suggests that he should cause problems here, and we can see him starting well. He’ll want to impress from the off after being handed the famous number 10 shirt, and we’re backing him to score the opener in our final Juventus vs Lazio prediction. That’s priced at 5/1 with Bet365 in this one.
Juventus to win – 17/20 with BetFred
