LAZ Vs JUV Fantasy Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: New era at Juventus gets off to a dismal and lacklustre start.
When Juventus had decided to part ways with Sarri and rope in Pirlo as their new face of the managerial post, many had questioned the move. With no spell as a manager in his life, Pirlo was immediately asked to lead one of the biggest clubs in the world, a job he was always going to struggle with.
And the worst fears of the club’s ardent supporters have been brought to fruition early into the season itself. With three draws in their last five outings, the Italians have slipped down into third place in the league standings with the margin between them and top spot widening to four points.
Added to that, the club’s aberrations in the Champions League have only gone onto increase the side’s woes. The underwhelming brand of football deployed by the club have left any perturbed with Pirlo’s choice of players and the gameplan he has inducted in place leaving people bemused and confounded.

Had it not been for Pepe Reina, Lazio would have had no chance of pulling off a win against Torino. As their goal was plundered with Torino pushing hard for an equaliser, Reina’s ability to parry away shots saw him protect his side’s slender one goal lead.
Juventus might no longer be the defensive units which turned clubs white as a sheet but the club is still managing to get the job done. The side has despite its vulnerabilities let in just five goals till now, a figure achieved owing to the identity of the players lining up the side’s defensive gameplan.
One player who has made massive breakthrough at the club this season with his versatile skill set is Danilo Luiz da Silva. We are pairing him alongside Juan Cuadrado who is always involved in the club’s attacking plays with Leonardo Bonucci who has the one goal completing our set of picks.
Initially roped in to compensate for the injuries rocking Juventus, Federico Chiesa’s solid performances earned him a place in his club’s playing 11.Rodrigo Bentacur has been a spitting image of the bygone season, a player whose ability to square the ball in lethal positions has made him a real asset for the side.
Lazio will see two goal man Sergej Milinkovic-Savic line up for us with Mohamed Fares with the one assist linking up.
With Ciro out for Lazio currently, the entire onus of scoring for Lazio falls on the shoulders of Felipe Caicedo. It’s a role he can easily carry out as well with the two goals he’s registered for the side being emotive of that narrative.
Scoring twice for Juventus on his first return after having contracted COVID, Cristiano Juventus showed why he’s the mainstay of the club’s attack. Striker Alvaro Morata has managed to fend off reasonably well for himself with the two goals and two assists.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Ronaldo’s five goals meant he was always going to captain our side with Morata being our vice-captain.
