Why Roma can beat Juventus
Losing to Cremonese is still a big loss for Jose Mourinho. The Italians controlled play for 66% of the game and held a 10-to-6 advantage on all shots. However, they were stunned by a well-executed penalty from Daniel Ciofani in the 83rd minute to ensure Cremonese victory. Frank Tsadjout also scored for Cremonese while Leonardo Spinazzola scored for Roma.
The Yellow-Reds are currently fifth in Serie A, three points behind Inter Milan and AC Mila, while leaders Napoli have a 21-point buffer. Roma have hit the net 31 times in 24 games played.
For a side looking to bounce back in Italy’s top flight, Wolves need the ruthlessness required to maintain their top-six position. You can take inspiration from their win in August 2020, their last win against tonight’s guests in which Roma scored 3-1.
Whatever the case, the Romans need to avoid mistakes by improving their season stats of 12.8 shots and 4.8 corners per game. Paulo Dybala leads Roma with eight goals while Lorenzo Pellegrini has six assists. Tammy Abraham has nine goals for Roma.
Jose Mourinho will only be without Ebrima Darboe in this game. Rui Patricio should start as a goalkeeper. Gianluca Mancini, Chris Smalling and Roger Ibanez will form Roma’s backline.
Why Juventus can beat Roma
Juventus are currently in the top seven of the league table. Without the deduction of 15 points, Juventus would have achieved 49 points and thus second place in Italy’s top flight. However, they still need to gain at least seven points to secure a place in the top six in Italy’s Serie A. They have scored 40 goals while conceding 19, giving them 35 points and a goal difference of +21.
The Bianconeri are enjoying a seven-game unbeaten streak with victories over Lazio, Salernitana, Fiorentina, Spezia and Torino. That run would have consisted of seven wins in a row as they led 1-0 at half-time against FC Nantes in the UEFA Europa League, but the game ended in a 1-1 draw in the second half. Regardless, they knocked out Nantes in the Europa League with a 3-0 game in France.
Final Roma-Juventus Prediction & Selection
Juventus, along with leaders Napoil, are one of two teams who have conceded the fewest goals in the second half of Serie A games this season (eight), while Roma have conceded just nine, so both teams know how to play well .
It will certainly be tough in the capital, but Mourinho could be in for more misery as Juve are a superb team when it comes to taking the lead and tenaciously maintaining that lead until the final whistle. Assist the guests in a seemingly exciting game.
