Juve thumps Lazio

Waterproof behind, clinical in front, Juve calmly slapped Lazio, generally powerless in Turin this Sunday evening (3-0).

Juventus 3-0 SS Lazio

Goals: Kean (43e54e), Milik (89e) for Juve

You have to believe that it is progressing. The path traced by Massimiliano Allegri is not lined with the most beautiful landscapes, but it takes paths that are increasingly well marked. A trip where it is first a question of getting back to basics, while Juve – Italy’s best defense – still kept their clean sheet this Sunday. Too strong for a Lazio reduced to offensive impotence, and coldly struck down by two pawns from Moise Kean and a banderilla from Milik.

Without Ciro, it plays, but it coughs

No surprises at the Allianz Stadium: Juventini as Laziali cook their usual respective recipe. The Piedmontese boil the pot with crosses from Kostić and vertical openings towards Milik, not clumsy, but too lonely in front. Lazio, on the other hand, cooks the opponent slowly with its precise and untied passing circuit, Milinković Savić taking control of the whole thing. A game plan certainly more sophisticated than that of the Bianconeri, but still weighed down by the absence of Ciro Immobile, who is sorely lacking in the finish. Results ? Not disgusting technically, the game is nonetheless incredibly stingy in terms of opportunities. Not a problem for Juve, who never really need much to score. In this case, with a good opening from Rabiot, a completely lame exit from Provedel and a lob from Kean, which allowed his side to pass in front of the score just before the break.

Guess Kean is coming to dinner

Reinvigorated by their advantage, Juve have the slab as soon as they return from the locker room. Enough to supply Milik, then Kostić, with balloons, which in turn endanger Lazio. On an attempt from the second, Kean is still there to feast on the crumbs. On the lookout, the Italian takes a shot from the Serb deflected by Provedel, to double the bet. The ideal scenario for the Old Lady, who only has to ensure her business behind, well helped by a Lazio now without idea or going. Served by a low cross from Chiesa, Milik can even calmly close the deal late in the game, adjusting Provedel closely. Easy success for Bianconeriwho sign a 6e rank victory in the championship and even climb on the podium of Serie A.
