Lazio hit out at suggestions that the Serie title could be decided by a four-team play-off, instead proposing a one-off match against Juventus.

The Aquile trailed league leaders Juventus by a single point as Serie A was postponed in March due to the spread of coronavirus in Italy. With a resolution to the campaign yet to be finalised, numerous suggestions have been made to find a suitable conclusion.

One such proposal would see the top four complete in a play-off to decide the title, with Juventus and Lazio joined by Inter and Atalanta, though Lotito vented his contempt for the idea.

“We are one point off Juventus,” Lotito told . “How can it be fair that a team like Inter, who are eight points behind us, or Atalanta who are 14 behind, can be involved in deciding the outcome of the Scudetto?

“I challenge Juventus to a single match to decide the league. We would accept a one-off fixture.”

Lazio have beaten Juventus in both meetings between the pair this season, recording 3-1 victories in Serie A and the Supercoppa Italiana.
