Why Bet On Juventus?
- Recent Form: W-W-W-L-D-W
Juventus has won three straight Italian Serie A matches including a dominating 4-0 spanking of Cagliari 4-0 at home on Monday as superstar winger Cristiano Ronaldo scored a second-half hat-trick to lead Serie A champions to the easy win. Juventus controlled 65% of the possession and had 20 shots in the victory, including a goal by Gonzalo Higuain. The reigning champs sit in second place in the Italian league with 35 goals scored and 17 allowed in 18 matches. The Old Lady has gone 7-2-1 on the road, but just 2-5-3 ATS during the stretch. The total has gone 5-4-1 on the road and Juventus has put 23 road points on the board this season.
Why Bet On AS Roma?

AS Roma suffered a humbling 2-0 loss at home to Torino on Sunday as fullback Alessandro Florenzi made a costly mistake by sending a pass straight to a Torino player who then found the back of the net past Pau Lopez. Roma sits in fourth place in the Italian league standings with 33 goals scored and 19 allowed in 18 matches. Roma has gone 6-2-2 on their home pitch and 6-4 ATS during the span. The total is 5-3-2 and Roma has scored 20 home points.
Roma vs Juventus Expert Analysis and Prediction
Roma and Juventus played each other in May at the Stadio Olimpico where Roma won 2-0 as Alessandro Florenzi and Edin Dzeko scored for Roma in the shutout win. However, this time around, I’m going with Juventus to get the hard-fought road win based on the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo is coming off a seriously most dominant Italian League performance the last time out. While I’m not expecting AS Roma to simply roll over against the defending champs in this contest, I am going with Ronaldo and company for the thrilling, but narrow, road win!
