AS Roma vs Juventus Prediction & Betting tips
Juventus is about to put the seventh Scudetto in a row in the trophy cabinet. The Oude Dame can not miss the title anymore. AS Roma has enough victory to get the ticket for the Champions League.
AS Roma is currently in third place and seems to be setting up for the Champions League. The formation of trainer Eusebio di Francesco has played a two-run advantage over fellow countryman Lazio, while Internazionale has two more points. It must be strange that AS Roma does not want to qualify for the champions ball. Yet a defeat against Juventus could put some pressure on the team again and that is something that the Romans want to prevent.
Last week AS Roma recorded the fourth victory in a row in the Serie A by beating the swaying Cagliari in Sardinia. It was not a big game, by the way. Cengiz Under opened the score after fifteen minutes of football and after that AS Roma did not really succeed in impressing. The defense kept the zero and the full booty was caught.
Before meeting with Juventus, Di Francesco has to deal with some injuries, but here it is mainly players who have been on the sidelines for a while. For Rick Karsdorp, light is finally burning at the tunnel. The right back is almost fit again, but this game is too early for the Dutch defender.
Juventus has the chance to add two prizes to the total in a period of a week. At the moment Massimiliano Allegri’s team is already halfway since AC Milan was defeated in the final of the Coppa Italia on Wednesday. In Rome, the Old Lady struck hard after the rest. Between the 56th and the 76th minute, four goals were scored and that proved to be more than enough to win the game. With this 4-0 win, Juventus has given a lot of confidence.
Juventus is already certain of the title because of the much better goal difference than Napoli, but now needs a point to make the championship official. The recent loss against Napoli seemed to put Juventus under pressure, but then Juve hit back. The somewhat happy 2-3 victory at Inter put the team back on the right track and last week it was fairly easy to win Bologna 3-1.
Before the game against AS Roma, Allegri will have to improvise again to form his defense, but this does not really pose a problem for the leader. Juan Cuadrado, who has recently been acting as a right back in action, has been suspended, while Giorgio Chiellini and Benedikt Howedes are struggling with injuries. The selection of the club from Turin is big enough to absorb this. Stephan Lichtsteiner is now expected on the right side of the defense.
