The Old Lady boast the superiority in the head-to-head record between the sides, reigning supreme on 27 separate occasions.

Recent history has tended to go in the direction of Juventus - unbeaten in their last three encounters - although the Lazio faithful will point to their 3-1 victory over Juve in 2019/20.

Cuadrado saw red midway through the second half with the game poised at 1-1 before late strikes from Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Felipe Caicedo powered Lazio to victory.

With progression to the knockout stages already secured, it is unlikely that Allegri will rotate his side this weekend with a trip to face Chelsea awaiting in midweek.

The Old Lady have tended to fall on either side of one-goal margins this season and we could see similar this weekend at a tricky venue.

Prediction: Lazio 0-1 Juventus
