Italian football has been largely in the doldrums over the past few years, although Juventus have risen out of the ashes to become a European powerhouse once again.

Juve’s 2-1 win away to Internazionale on Saturday means that the Turin side are sixteen points clear at the top of the Serie A table with two games remaining and they now have their sights on more silverware.

The Coppa Italia final has been brought forward due to the fact that Juventus have reached the Champions League final, with Massimiliano Allegri now hoping to become a double-winning manager and it’s no surprise to find them favourites to claim victory.

The match will be played at the Stadio Olimpico which gives Lazio a home advantage of sorts, although there will be thousands of Juventus fans making the trip to Rome for a match where the Eagles are seen as underdogs.

Lazio have had a good season of their own and currently hold third place in Serie A. Staying in this position would mean Champions League football for Stefano Pioli’s team, with a 1-0 win at Sampdoria keeping Napoli at bay.

However, the two matches between the teams this season has seen Juve win 3-0 at the Stadio Olimpico before triumphing 2-0 at the Juventus Stadium and it’s hard to pick holes in the Italian champions.

Alvaro Morata and Carlos Tevez make a dangerous attacking line-up, with the Juve midfield brimming with talent including Paul Pogba, Arturo Vidal and the ageless Andrea Pirlo. This is a side that have recently beaten Real Madrid over two legs to set up a Champions League final against Barcelona.

While victory in Berlin is unlikely according to the odds, a domestic double looks to be on the cards and Juve can be backed at odds-against to beat a side which they should outclass before the final whistle blows.
