Juventus vs. Roma Prediction

The third round of the Italian Serie A will be marked by a big derby between Juventus and Roma. The start of the match at the Allianz Stadium is scheduled for Saturday at 18:30.

Both teams have started well in the new championship, but what worries the coaches more is the injuries of important players in the season’s early stages.

Juventus Team News

The Old Lady won four points in the first two rounds. In the first match, they dominantly beat Sassuolo 3-0, but they fumbled already in the second round, when they played a goalless draw against Sampdoria.

Not getting all three points in Genoa is not as big of a problem for coach Massimiliano Allegri as are Paul Pogba and Angelo Di Maria’s injuries. They are predicted to be the main players of the team in the upcoming competitive year. Italian coach cannot count on Federico Chiesa and Wojciech Szczesny either, so these are serious problems for Juventus at the beginning of the new season.

The good news is that Leonardo Bonucci will return to the starting line-up after missing the visit to Sampdoria, so Juventus has no absent players in the team’s defensive line.

Roma Team News

Roma won a maximum of six points in the first two rounds. They recorded both victories 1-0, and Jose Mourinho’s men defeated Salernita as guests and Cremonese in front of their fans.

The Giallorossi have their problems too. New signing Georginio Wijnaldum broke his leg during practice and will be out for the rest of the year, while Nicolo Zaniolo dislocated his shoulder against Cremonese and will be out for a month.

The Portuguese coach can be satisfied with the performance of his defense at the beginning of the season. They didn’t concede a goal, which is characteristic of all the teams managed by Mourinho. They will now face a much tougher test, as Juventus’ attack is far more dangerous than that of their previous two rivals’.

H2H

Roma have not beaten Juventus in their last four games. In fact, Bianconeri won the previous three matches.

Expected lineups

Juventus (4-3-3): Szczesny; Danilo, Bonucci, Bremer, Sandro; Miretti, Locatelli, Rabiot; Cuadrado, Vlahovic, Kostic

Roma (3-4-2-1): Patricio; Ibanez, Smalling, Mancini; Spinazzola, Matić, Cristante, Karsdorp; Dybala, Pellegrini; Abraham

Juventus vs. Roma Prediction

We expect a difficult and physically very demanding match. Both teams play well in the defensive phase and we believe that they will not be too offense-oriented. Therefore, we don’t think there will be many scoring opportunities and we wouldn’t be surprised if this clash ends in the least popular 0-0.
