Juventus

will play a crucial match against

Lazio

on Saturday. The Bianconeri have slipped to third place on the league table and they are trying to remain in the title race with

Inter

and

AC Milan

. On the other hand, Lazio sit seventh in the league as they are aiming to secure a Champions League spot for the next season.

Stephan Lichtsteiner

, who has played for both teams in the past, says he expects to see an exciting match on Saturday.

“Juventus-Lazio is the game of my career. I met amazing people in Rome and I celebrated seven Serie A titles in Turin,”

Lichtsteiner told

La Gazzetta dello Sport

.

“I’ve learned the culture of victory and I've known friends I haven’t seen for more than one year and who I hope to hug soon.

“I expect a tough game tonight. Both teams have pressure on them. Juventus must win to keep their title hopes alive, Lazio want to qualify for the Champions League. Juventus win when they have to, so I expect a 2-1 victory.

“The Bianconeri can reach Inter on top of the table. They know how to win. They don’t lack quality. They are in the race for all competitions, while Inter only have Serie A.

“I don’t think Juventus are in crisis. They are at the beginning of a new project.

“Conte knows how to manage the advantage, he is a winner and everything becomes easier with him. However, I don’t think the title race is over. It can happen to slow down when one feels the pressure.

“Pirlo is brave. Even if he won’t be the title this season, he is building something to succeed in the next campaign.

“He needs time, I am sure Andrea will do well. I am sure they will eliminate Porto in the Champions League. Then, they would need some luck in the quarter-finals and semi-finals draw.”
