      A Juve-Lazio XI ahead of Saturday's first home game of the season against Le Aquile

      With the Bianconeri's 2018/19 season opener at Allianz Stadium on the horizon, here are 11 names that have contributed to the history of Juventus-Lazio throughout the years:

      Angelo Peruzzi

      Angelo Peruzzi spent much of the 90s guarding the Juventus goal, before going on to be Lazio's number one in 2000 after a spell at Inter. He is currently the club manager at Le Aquile and interestingly spent time at both clubs dealing with shots from Pavel Nedved!

      Stephan Lichtsteiner

      Having played 100 games with Lazio before going on to win seven league titles in seven years at Juventus, Stephan Lichtsteiner embodied much of the never give up, Fino Alla Fine spirit whilst in Bianconero.

      Giancarlo Bercellino

      On the last day of the 1966/67 season, Juventus defeated Lazio 2-1 to overtake Inter, who lost in Mantova, and win their 13th Scudetto. Who scored the game's opener? Giancarlo Bercellino.

      Giorgio Chiellini

      In 2007/08, Giorgio Chiellini scored his first ever brace in Serie A as Juve beat Lazio 5-2 in Turin!

      Antonio Cabrini

      The date is 13 February 1977 and Antonio Cabrini is just 19 years old when he makes his Serie A debut against Lazio. The Bianconeri win 2-0 and it is thanks to Cabrini, who wins a penalty after being brought down in the box.

      The left-back would go on to play 440 matches and lift 13 titles with the Old Lady.

      Lionello Manfredonia

      After 10 years at Lazio, Lionello Manfredonia made the move to Juventus in 1985 where he would go on to win a Scudetto and Intercontinental Cup.

      Pavel Nedved

      A Juve-Lazio XI could never be complete without Pavel Nedved! The Czech maestro spent five years in the capital before making the move to Juventus in 2001.

      Nedved went on to become a football icon and Bianconeri legend, with his extraordinary on-pitch exploits winning him the Ballon d'Or in 2003 amongst seven trophies in black and white. His final football match before retirement was, in fact, Juventus vs Lazio on 31 May 2009.

      Helmut Haller

      On 3 January 1971, Juventus hosted Lazio in freezing conditions of -10 in Turin!

      Thankfully, German midfielder, Helmut Haller, was at hand to warm up the atmosphere by scoring the opener in the sixth minute! Juve would go on to win the match 3-1.

      Pietro Anastasi

      Pietro Anastasi put in a simply incredible performance at home to Lazio back in the 1974-75 season.  

      Entering the field for José Joao Altafini, he would create three goals within five breath-taking minutes!

      Christian Vieri

      Christian Vieri spent one year at Juventus before going on to spend a season in the capital with Lazio.

      Vieri's last goal for the Bianconeri came against his future employers on the final day of the 1996/97 season to crown a 24th Scudetto for Juventus.

      Michael Laudrup

      Signed by Juventus and then sent out on loan to Lazio to acclimatise to Serie A, Michael Laudrup went on to become one of the most exciting and elegant Bianconeri players of his era.
