Former Juventus goalkeeper and current Lazio team manager Angelo Peruzzi still believes it will be tough to dethrone Juventus from their Scudetto perch.

Lazio face Juve in a rematch of the Supercoppa from this Summer, and Peruzzi admits it will be difficult to replicate the display.

“It will be a different game from the one in August,” Peruzzi told reporters.

“Hopefully the result will be the same. It won’t be easy at their home, they haven’t lost much at Juventus Stadium, but we’ll try.

“We’ve done so much in training this week, we’ll go to Turin to play a great game.

“The Scudetto? Juventus are still the strongest team in Italy, and maybe in Europe. They have a great squad and they can cause problems for anyone.

“They’re the team to beat again this year.”

Peruzzi was asked if Gianluigi Buffon is declining, as some have come to say in the last few years.

“It’s become a common saying now!” Peruzzi laughed.

“Gigi is very strong, if he keeps training he can play for several more years.”
