With the race for the Serie A title not an assurance for Juventus, they will be heading to the Stadio Paolo Mazza to extend their lead against side SPAL. The match schedules for 22nd February with kickoff at 20:00 GMT.
Underdogs Lazio have made their intentions clear for the title contention against the Old Lady. Juventus face an intense battle also from side Inter Milan who saw a 2-1 loss to side Lazio during the weekend.
Juventus are still in contention while registering three wins in their last five Serie A matches. With the Champions League Round of 16 fixtures underway, the squad depth will be the last shot for Coach Sarri.
