All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for Juventus v Roma are shown below - plus the latest betting odds.
Juventus won’t want a repeat of their last result here following a 2-0 Serie A loss in their previous game against Cagliari.
In that game, Juventus managed 67% possession and 34 attempts at goal with 10 of them on target. At the other end, Cagliari got 11 shots at goal with 5 on target. Luca Gagliano (8') and Giovanni Simeone (45') scored for Cagliari.
Matches featuring Juventus have usually been lively encounters of late with a lot of goalmouth action being the norm. Over their past half dozen clashes alone, a total of 20 goals have gone in for both teams combined (at an average of 3.33 goals per game) with 10 of these belonging to Juve. That kind of pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward into this game, though.
Coming into this contest, Juventus are unbeaten in their previous 39 league matches at home. A fantastic home record.
Roma come into this game after a 2-3 Serie A win with the defeat of Torino in their last outing.
In that match, Roma managed 49% possession and 15 attempts on goal with 6 on target. For Roma, the goals were scored by Edin Džeko (16'), Chris Smalling (23') and Amadou Diawara (61'). For their opponents, Torino had 9 shots on goal with 4 of them on target. Berenguer (14') and Wilfried Singo (65') scored for Torino.
Proving their predisposition for eventful matches, the back of the net has been hit 25 times in the previous six games in which Roma have played, yielding a mean average of 4.17 goals per meeting. Opposing teams have managed 7 of these goals.
Their prior results show that Roma:
- have left without a victory over Juventus in games played away from home for the previous 9 league matches. A very poor set of away results, indeed.
- have not been beaten in their last 3 league matches away from home.
Head to head
Looking over their most recent head to head clashes stretching back to 23/12/2017 shows us that Juventus have won 4 of them and Roma 1, with the tally of drawn matches being 1.
A combined sum of 11 goals were yielded between them during those clashes, with 7 of them from Juve and 4 being from i Giallorossi. That’s an average goals per game of 1.83.
Team News: Juventus
Mattia De Sciglio (Biceps femoris muscle injury), Douglas Costa (Tear in the abductor muscle), Giorgio Chiellini (Calf Problems) and Sami Khedira (Tear in the abductor muscle) won’t be available for Juventus gaffer Maurizio Sarri. Miralem Pjanic will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Team News: Roma
Thanks to a mainly available squad, there is just a single fitness problem for the Roma boss Paulo Fonseca to contend with. Lorenzo Pellegrini (Nose Injury) misses out for this game. Gianluca Mancini will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We’ve got the feeling that Roma should be able to create a high number of chances and successful shots on target.
At the same time, Juventus might well find it a difficult task scoring but we can see them managing to get on the scoresheet as well here.
Our tip is for a fairly comfortable 1-3 winning margin for Roma after 90 minutes.
