After winning four in a row, Juventus will be looking to end a forgettable 2022 on a high note by adding two more wins to their winning streak.
The Bianconeri take on Hellas Verona away from home on Thursday, before wrapping up the year in a clash with Lazio at the Allianz Stadium.
The weekend tilt is sure to be significant for both clubs as they are locked in a tense battle for European places that includes a host of top teams.
The Biancocelesti currently sit third in the Serie A standings, two points ahead of the Bianconeri.
But unfortunately for Maurizio Sarri, he has now suffered another injury hit which will see a key player miss until the restart in January.
According to ilBianconero, Lazio have reported that Mattia Zaccagni has suffered a blow to his right calf.
The 27-year-old has been an important figure for the capital club, and was always present in the starting eleven. He has contributed five goals and three assists in 13 Serie A appearances.
The eagles are already without their main talisman Ciro Immobile, so Zaccagni’s absence will leave Sarri with a depleted attack.
On the other hand, Juventus were already suffering from their fair share of injuries, but the situation has been calming down lately, with the likes of Federico Chiesa and Angel Di Maria returning to the pitch.
