Roma v Juventus Betting Preview
Time: 19:45 pm
Venue: Stadio Olimpico
Channel: BT Sport
Juventus can clinch their seventh consecutive Serie A title this weekend if they can avoid defeat away at Roma in the Stadio Olimpico.
Napoli’s collapse in the last few games has allowed Juve to regain control of the title race and will win yet another Scudetto with a point from their final two games.
As for Roma, they have had a successful season all in all and will be happy with the way it has gone. They still need a point themselves to secure Champions League football for next season, but they have it all in their hands given Inter are four points behind them in fifth.
Roma are in good form in the league at the moment with four straight wins, scoring ten goals in those four. Despite winning their last two at home, their record at the Olimpico this season has been slightly inconsistent and their performances at home to the top-half sides in the league has been poor.
Roma have lost to Inter, Napoli, Milan, Atalanta, Sampdoria and Fiorentina at home this season, beating just Lazio and Torino from the top 10 this season at home. As for Juve, they beat Roma in their home fixture back in December but do not have a great record in the capital. Juve have lost their last two away to Roma and have not won there since the 2013/14 season.
Given that Roma have struggled at home in the big games, Juve don’t have a great record at the Olimpico and that both teams need just a point for their respective ambitions, the draw would be the sensible option.
Juventus themselves have looked shaky in the big games this season but away from home, they have lost just once all season. They have beaten the likes of Inter, Milan, Napoli and Lazio despite being second best in some of those games, making them the more tempting price at 5/2.
Roma are without Bruno Peres, Kostas Manolas and Gregoire Defrel, whilst Lorenzo Pellegrini is a doubt for the home side.
Juan Cuadrado is suspended for Juve, whilst Giorgio Chiellini and Benedikt Howedes are out. Daniele Rugani is a doubt but could make the bench.
Potential Roma Starting XI: Alisson; Florenzi, Fazio, Juan Jesus, Kolarov; Strootman, De Rossi, Nainggolan; Under, Dzeko, El Shaarawy
Potential Juventus Starting XI: Buffon; Lichsteiner, Barzagli, Benatia, Sandro; Khedira, Marchisio; Matuidi, Dybala, Mandzukic; Higuain
