Why Juventus can’t win the Serie A title: Juventus vs Lazio

It’s a title that has never been won by Juventus, with Lazio beating Juventus 2-1 in the last 16 of the Champions League.

The Bianconeri, who have been playing in Italy’s top flight since 1994, lost their opening Champions League match by three goals to Juventus, who were already in the quarter-finals.

Juventus, however, managed to pick up the points after conceding the first two goals, as they dominated possession in the first half with their defence in control of the game.

Juve’s midfielders, Lorenzo Insigne and Andrea Barzagli, scored the opening goal of the match, while Juventus captain Paulo Dybala’s header was saved by goalkeeper Francesco Totti.

Juve had the opportunity to take the lead when Giorgio Chiellini’s pass went through to the feet of Mario Mandzukic, but the Italian striker had no chance of hitting the target.

Juventinians defender, Giorgi Bauza, was forced to make a diving save from Mandzuka after the Bosnian had opened his account with a second goal in the space of 10 minutes.

The match ended in a draw after Lazio were awarded a penalty when a referee called for a handball, but Juve players were not happy with the result.

“We played well,” Lazio boss Fabio Capello said.

“I think it was an honest game.

We had chances.

I don’t want to say they were bad chances.

We should have done better.

We just lacked the intensity.”

Juventus have now failed to win any of their last four Serie A titles and will be hoping for a third, having lost their previous two matches.
