Juventus vs Roma
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 6 February 2021
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Allianz Stadium, Turin.
Juventus and Roma will battle it out in the most exciting game of the Matchday No 22 in Serie A on Saturday evening at Allianz Stadium.
With just one point separating the two sides inside the top-four of the league standings, the background could hardly be more exciting. Nevertheless, we have the feeling that the defending champions enter the tie as pretty clear favourites.
Andrea Pirlo seems to have finally found the winning formula. After somewhat of a dismal start to the campaign, Juventus finally look like themselves. They have been dominating the Italian football since the start of the year.
The team won nine of the last ten matches across competitions. They will go into this fixture on the back of five straight victories. They have extended the winning run on Tuesday evening, beating Inter 1-2 on the road in the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final.
Juventus vs Roma Head-to-head
- Juventus lead the head to head tie by 13 wins going into the 61st meeting with the Romans.
- However, I Giallorossi are unbeaten in the last two clashes against Juve. They netted five goals in the process.
- The two sides shared spoils in a 2-2 draw when they last took on each other in late-September last year.
- Both teams scored in each of the last four head to head games.
Juventus vs Roma Prediction
The situation in Roma’s dressing room is far from ideal. Nonetheless, the team led by Paulo Fonseca managed to take advantage of the easier fixtures and celebrate two important wins over Spezia and Hellas Verona.
The Romans notched seven goals along the way, without the talismanic striker Edin Dzeko in the squad. Dzeko will likely skip the trip to Turin as well. It will be very interesting to see how the visitors will perform in the final third against an in-form defence of Juventus’.
The hosts have been very tough to break down lately. They shipped just one goal in the last five outings in all competitions. They will be highly motivated to beat the Romans after two successive failures in head to head matches. They also have the red-hot Cristiano Ronaldo in the squad.
The Portuguese superstar bagged both of his team’s goals in the mentioned mid-week’s win over Inter and we will back him to score anytime here at the 1.61 odds.
