Serie A: Juventus face Lazio with Cristiano Ronaldo in the starting lineup



Trying their second win in the Italian League, Juventus will face a tough opponent in their first home game of the season. At 13.00 this Saturday, for the second round of  Calcio , the Old Lady, who has won the last seven editions of the Italian, receives Lazio, who fights for a place in the Champions League.

In the opening round of the Italian, Juventus won but had more work than imagined. The Turin team visited Chievo and went ahead, but took the turn and reacted, winning by 3 to 2 with goal in the extras. Lazio also did not have the dream debut: they received Napoli, who also fight for the Italian title, and lost by 2 to 1.

Main transfer of international football for the season 2018-19, Cristiano Ronaldo will play at home for the first time in the Juventus uniform this Saturday. Coach Massimiliano Allegri did not inform the starting lineup, but confirmed that the current best in the world will start playing against Lazio.

“Cristiano Ronaldo plays tomorrow,” Allegri confirmed in a press conference on Friday. “Both Dybala and Mandzukic could play together with Ronaldo, but it’s not a question of one or two of them playing with Ronaldo, it’s about the characteristics of the rest of the team and how we organize ourselves.”

Allegri also praised Lazio and asked the team to concentrate. “Lazio is a strong team physically and very well organized, who likes to hit opponents in the counterattack,” . “We need to stay very focused during tomorrow’s game and have a better performance than the last game.”

Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi is expecting a difficult match in Turin. “In view of the duel of tomorrow, we must learn from the mistakes made against Napoli,” said Inzaghi. “The team has worked well and is preparing for a tough challenge.”

Napoli welcomes Milan trying their second win

In the other match of Saturday’s Italian Championship, Napoli will host Milan for a duel that promises balance. Napoli, who are hoping to overthrow Juventus, have beaten Lazio away from home in the first round. Already Milan will make its debut in the competition, as the duel against Genoa, which would take place last Sunday for the first round, has been postponed.
