Scudetto deja vu for Lazio?

Lazio are the ultimate underdogs in the Scudetto race, but that has never stopped them before, writes Vijay Rahaman.

It's been 20 seasons since Lazio last celebrated their second and final Scudetto success, but they are in with a genuine chance for a third crown this year.

Back at the turn of the millennium, just as it seemed now, the Biancocelesti were the outsiders. They trailed Juventus by five points with just three matches remaining, but managed to overhaul the Bianconeri and won Serie A in their centenary year. Currently, they trail the eight-time defending champions by five points with a game in hand, maybe a case of deja vu?
