Opportunity knocks in Juve-Lazio

Juventus have the opportunity for Supercoppa revenge on Lazio, but risk another Simone Inzaghi tactical lesson, writes Daryl Hammond.

Arguably one of the most enthralling matches between two Italian teams came before the season even started. Paulo Dybala’s 91st-minute equaliser was outdone in the drama stakes by Alessandro Murgia’s winner at the 93rd to hand Lazio a deserved Italian Super Cup win over Juventus in August. Fast forward two months and both are still flying high in Serie A, fuelling enthusiasm for another potential barnstormer between the two.

On the weekend of Derby della Madonnina and Derby del Sole, the best viewing may be found in Turin this Saturday.
