Juventus are no longer in the Serie A title race, and the Bianconeri are not the betting online favorites to win the UEFA Europa League. Winning the Coppa Italia is all that remains.

Let’s check the latest Coppa Italia news, stats, injury reports, and Serie A lines for Juventus vs Lazio. We’ve got plenty of Coppa Italia picks for you to consider.
Juventus: Coppa Italia or Bust
Having lost 15 points in the Serie A due to false accounting, Juventus then played host to Monza. They lost, 2-0. Bianconeri finished with 22 shots in total, 19 more than the visitors, but their mind was somewhere else. They plummeted to 13th place.
We weren’t kidding about Coppa Italia being pretty much the only thing that’s left. Bianconeri defeated Monza, 2-1, in the Round of 16. as Moise Kean and Federico Chiesa scored.
Chiesa won’t be available Thursday due to injury, but Kean will be. Dusan Vlahovic and Paul Pogba are also available after missing games. This is a team with skill to spare. Manuel Locatelli, Alex Sandro, Arkadiusz Milik and Matias Soule came off the bench in the last game. All of them would be starters in pretty much any other Serie A team.
Before losing to Monza, Bianconeri went seven straight home games without a losing effort, scoring in all of them and having four clean sheets. That’s why they dominate the Las Vegas odds (+105), despite tough times on and off the field.
Lazio: Non-Losing Streak on Line
So, last Sunday, Lazio drew, 1-1, to Fiorentina in Serie A. Biancocelesti’ Nicolo Casale scored the opener only eight minutes into the game, but the defense couldn’t hold. Nicolas Gonzalez tallied the equalizer at the beginning of the second half.
That draw increased the Biancocelesti’s non-losing streak to five games, including a 1-0 win over Bologna in the Round of 16 at the Coppa Italia. Felipe Anderson scored the lone goal against the Rossoblu. Defense didn’t allow a single shot on target.
It’s the defense that is one of the main reasons to consider including the Biancocelesti in your soccer picks. They’ve surrendered 16 Serie A goals in 20 matches. Only Napoli, the team atop the standings, allowed less (15).
The attacking unit has Mattia Zaccagni leading the way with eight goals. Immobile is next with seven. He will be back after missing a couple of games due to injury. There’s also Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, leading the team with eight assists. It’s a unit that‘s well-balanced.
