A rejuvenated Juventus surged to a 3-0 win over Palermo while Lazio were held to a 0-0 draw by fellow title hopefuls Napoli to bring the two sides level on 22 points at the summit of Serie A, and now this weekend’s game between the pair is being billed as the game of the season so far as the title race begins to take shape.
Juve have a game in hand over their Rome-based rivals and with both Italian giants with illustrious pasts looking like their former selves once more after a barren run, Conte believes Saturday’s game should be one to remember.
Lazio is a team that I’ve always included among the best this season,” Conte said. “I believe they can have a starring role in the campaign just as we can. I think it’s going to be a fantastic game between two teams that play attractive football.”
“There is great satisfaction for what we are doing, but I don’t like excessive euphoria and we know there’s a long way to go.” He added.
The game takes on another special dimension as it could potentially be Juve icon Alessandro Del Piero’s 700th game for the club. The Italian forward, who amassed 103 caps for his country, first played for Juve back in 1992 and has been with them ever since, and despite not being as involved this season as he would have likes, the striker would love dearly to reach the milestone and land a serious blow in the title race at the same time.
Andrea Pirlo is a fitness doubt for Juventus going in to the game after the former AC Milan midfielder picked up a muscle injury during training on Thursday.
The Juventus medical staff will assess the injury ahead of the game, and would be a serious blow for the away side as the look to keep their unbeaten start to the season going.
