Three of the last four Serie A curtain-raisers have been played in Beijing, but the decision to pit league champion Juve against Coppa Italia winner Lazio on home soil this year caused mutual concern over the use of a suitable venue.

Milan's San Siro - a neutral option - was considered but Lega chiefs have ultimately decided to hold the game at Lazio's home stadium one week before the 2013-2014 season begins on 24 August.
