Lazio and Juventus will meet today as the two teams clash in Riyadh for the Italian Supercup finals with the title at stake.

Juventus will rely on in-form Ronaldo to bring them the trophy.

However, they aren’t the only ones focusing on the Portuguese.

Lazio’s manager, Simone Inzaghi, was asked about the Cristiano Ronaldo threat ahead of today’s match.

He had nothing but praise for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.

“He is a champion who can change the game at any time,” Inzaghi said, as quoted by Goal.

“We have to be on guard, knowing that, on paper, Juve have greater potential. However, all that matters is what happens on the pitch.”

Lazio showed teeth themselves the other day when they beat Bianconeri 3-1.

This is a perfect chance for The Old Lady to get their revenge on Laziali.
