Team News: Juventus
Adrien Rabiot (Corona virus), Aaron Ramsey (Unknown Injury) and Álvaro Morata (Torn Muscle Fibre) are unavailable for Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri.
Team News: Roma
Roma boss José Mourinho has to choose a team with limited availability. Chris Smalling (Hamstring Injury) and Leonardo Spinazzola (Achilles tendon rupture) miss out here.
We think that Roma will do well to break down this Juventus lineup who we reckon should get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
We therefore see a very competitive encounter with a 1-0 winning margin for Juventus at the end of the match.
Looking forward to this.
