Alex Sandro acknowledges that Juventus is ‘lucky to have so many players who can still make a difference’ against Lazio. Each game is critical, both this and the next. We know Lazio has had a fantastic season and we have to move on to the field with the only thought of winning with a fine result, “the full-back Brazilian told Sky Sport Italia.
It’s an opportunity for Juve to break eight straight points at the top of the table as both Inter and Atalanta were caught in the weekend’s stalemates.
“They were good results because, at the moment, we know it’s hard to get the whole squad in good shape, but we’re fortunate to have so many players that can still make the difference.”
In the start XI, Gonzalo Higuain was named but pulled out with a muscle problem during the warm-up so Paulo Dybala steps in.
