Juventus will head into the international break knowing they have no more football to play this year.
Before that though, they have to face an impressive Lazio side in Serie A this weekend.
Max Allegri’s men are on a five-game winning streak in the league, but it could be undone by a Lazio side that have earned their way to second place in the league table.
The beauty of this game is that a Juve win could help them replace Lazio and enter 2023 as the second-best team in the league behind Napoli.
That will be an impressive achievement considering how poor the Bianconeri have been for most of this season.
They didn’t have a day to rest after beating Verona in their last game and a report from Tuttosport says that Allegri wants the best of all his players in the game.
He understands that some are already thinking about a vacation, while others want to join their national team for the World Cup.
But the coach demands the best from his players when they take the field in the match against Lazio.
Juve FC says
Winning Lazio is the only result we need from that game because it’s the perfect way to end the year.
However, it won’t be easy and we have to be prepared to work harder than we have all season if we want to win that game.
