It’s been all too rare in recent times that Juventus have kept a clean sheet. The reality is that Juve have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 6 goals in the process. We will see if that trend can be continued on into this next match.

We’re thinking that Cagliari have it within them to find the net against this Juventus team, however that may not be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We are anticipating a 2-1 win for Juventus after the 90. We are expecting it to be pretty even.
