It was a summer stirred for Juventus after the Champions League final defeat by Barcelona. Italian champions lost three players who had a significant contribution to the excellent results in recent years, midfielders Andrea Pirlo and Arturo Vidal, respectively striker Carlos Tevez. Mario Mandzukic, Simone Zaza and Paulo Dybala profile are players of Juve offense to cover the attack, and Sami Khedira should strengthen a middle line greatly weakened, but the former Real Madrid player was injured in the friendly match with Marseille and the field will be missing about two months.
On the other side, Lazio is preparing especially for double games with Bayer Leverkusen counting for the Champions League qualification, which would represent a significant financial gain for the Italians. First leg takes place over ten days in Rome. Lazio managed to keep, currently, all players base is the only departures of Michael Ciani and Luis Cavanda Sporting Trabzonspor. The veteran Miroslav Klose will still be the offensive reference point Capitoline, while midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic from Genk and striker Ricardo Kishna Ajax are the main news from Stefano Pioli’s group. Italian coach was dissatisfied with the quality of the Shanghai Stadium turf away after one decent weather in recent days, when in fact the presence of Typhoon Soudeuse even put in danger the deployment game.
Over the friendlies played in the last month Juventus certainly never showed the same defense as last season, and certainly Chiellini’s absence is a problem for Massimiliano Allegri. Torinezii received training goal in all games, and Lazio’s offensive force, with players like Klose, Felipe Anderson Candreva can speculate torineză errors in defense. But Juventus remains a team able to put any opponent in difficulty, so that the Shanghai Stadium could give a new match with goals from both sides, as happened in the Italian Cup final.
