[Coppa Italia] Juventus Vs Lazio Prediction

Juventus and Lazio are reportedly set for significant alterations in the first leg of the semifinals, scheduled for Tuesday evening local time.

The Coppa Italia semi-final's opening leg will see Juventus hosting Lazio at Turin's Allianz Stadium on Tuesday evening, followed by a rematch at Rome's Stadio Olimpico on April 23.

Just recently, these two teams clashed in Serie A, marking the debut of Biancoceleste's new coach Igor Tudor, resulting in a 1-0 victory for Lazio courtesy of Adam Marusic's stoppage-time header.

In preparation for the Coppa Italia semi-finals, Tudor initially sidelined players like Luis Alberto, Guendouzi, and Immobile but plans to field them for Tuesday's match, as per Football-Italia reports.

Luca Pellegrini who faced a Serie A suspension and is also ineligible for the Coppa, alongside veteran Pedro. Tudor has shifted to a 3-4-2-1 formation and may position Luis Alberto and Felipe Anderson further up to support Immobile, with Mattia Zaccagni likely to play in midfield. However, their primary goalkeeper, Ivan Provedel, remains sidelined due to an ankle injury. 

Lazio's inability to achieve more than two consecutive wins since mid-January highlights their inconsistency, and they are counting on Tudor to address these issues in the final months of the season. The team is eager to reach the domestic cup final after a five-year hiatus.

Lazio (3-4-2-1): Mandas; Patric, Romagnoli, Gila; Marusic, Guendouzi, Vecino, Zaccagni; Felipe Anderson, Luis Alberto; Immobile

Prediction: Juventus - Lazio = 0 - 0
