The probable Juventus formation for Lazio clash: Will Locatelli be ready? –

Tonight, Juventus will be looking to bow out in style when they host Lazio in the last round of 2022.

Max Allegri’s men are currently on a five-game winning streak while keeping a clean sheet. Now they have the opportunity to overtake the capital team and finish the year on the podium.

So how will the team deal with Maurizio Sarri’s side?

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus will adopt a 3-5-1-1 formation, almost similar to the one that emerged victorious against Inter last weekend.

After sitting out in Verona, Wojciech Szczesny will claim his place between the posts. Despite his unstable form, the source advises Leonardo Bonucci to lead the back line with Danilo and Gleison Bremer at his side.

However, Federico Gatti reportedly has a 40% chance of replacing Bremer, as the latter had recently returned from injury.

Once again, Allegri could rely on the very midfield, with Manuel Locatelli operating between Adrien Rabiot and Nicolò Fagioli while Juan Cuadrado and Filip Kostic take the wings.

The source also gives Leandro Paredes a 30% chance of starting instead of Locatelli, whose fitness remains questionable, as Allegri mentioned in yesterday’s press conference.

Finally, Fabio Miretti will support Arkadiusz Milik upfront, as Dusan Vlahovic is yet to return. However, Moise Kean has a 45% chance of keeping his place alongside the Pole after scoring the winning goal in Verona.

Juventus Likely XI (3-5-1-1): Szczesny; Bremer (Cats), Bonucci, Danilo; Square, Fagioli, Locatelli (Walls), Rabiot, Kostic; Miretti (Kan); milik
