Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: Juventus v. Lazio Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

Juventus and Lazio will square off Monday in a thrilling Serie A matchup, as both teams remain alive in the title race, and this game could offer several answers in that department. Juventus might be coming off a three-game winless run (D2, L1), but they remain fairly comfortable at the top of the standings with a six-point lead over both Inter Milan and Atalanta, though that advantage could shrink to just three points if Inter defeat AS Roma on Sunday. As for Lazio, they've taken just one point of their last 12 available (D1, L3) and have fallen to fourth place with only 69 points, but a win could put them five points behind Juventus with four games left in the schedule. As you can see, this is a pivotal contest for both clubs as the 2019-20 Serie A season is quickly drawing to a close.

Top Picks

Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus: Ronaldo has been the league's most dominant player since the 2019-20 Serie A season resumed last month, scoring seven goals in seven league matches, keeping him in the conversation for another golden boot.

Ciro Immobile, Lazio: Immobile has been the top scorer in the league for most of the season and remains ahead of Ronaldo by just one goal, though he only has two goals since the restart. The team needs him to wake up, and this game seems like the perfect opportunity to do so.

Captain and Vice-Captain Options

  1. Cristiano Ronaldo
  2. Ciro Immobile
  3. Douglas Costa
  4. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic
