Juventus vs AS Roma PREVIEW & PREDICTION 01/08/2020

On Saturday, starting with 19:45, the match Juventus – AS Roma will take place, within the round with number 38 (last) in Serie A.

Juventus, mathematically the champion of several rounds, is “on vacation”. With 2 defeats in the last 3 games of the championship, CR7’s colleagues do not seem to help the Portuguese in the fight for the Golden Ice. Ronaldo, with 4 goals behind Immobile, can say goodbye to his coveted trophy. In this sense, the general objective of the “Old Lady”, but also the particular one of Cristiano Ronaldo for this last round are almost non-existent. Moreover, the hosts will not be able to bet on a series of very important players, such as Dybala, Khedira, Pjanic, Costa or de Light, all injured.

On the other hand, AS Roma, like Juventus, is without a goal in this last stage. The team from “Cetatea Eterna” obtained 3 victories in the last 3 rounds, the 9 points ensuring Fonseca’s students the 5th position at the end of the season. Therefore, it is more than possible that AS Roma will not use the best team in this last round either. However, unlike Sarri’s team, the Romanians do not have such a large group to easily line up a team without most of the starters. Also, among the guests there are no absentees other than the older injured Pellegrini and the suspended Mancini.

Taking into account all the aspects mentioned above, there is no doubt that the duel will be more of a “vacation”. In this sense, we consider that the defenses of the two teams will be extremely vulnerable, the goals being able to appear.

AS Roma, unbeaten in the last 7 matches;
Juventus, 3 victories in the previous 4 direct matches;
Ronaldo, 31 goals scored in the first 37 stages.

At this time, information on probable teams cannot be provided. Thanks to the Champions League matches that Juventus will play, “Batrana Doamna” can reach 5 matches in 12 days! Therefore, Maurizio Sarri could use the U23 team in the match with AS Roma, an aspect confirmed by the Italian press as well. In this sense, no Italian publication dares to offer a first 11 that Juve could use. However, several sources have confirmed that the Romanian Radu Dragusin could make his debut in Serie A! We also mention that as soon as the probable teams will be available, we will return with an update to this article.

PREDICTION: Both teams to score / YES @ 1,44
