THE TEAM NEWS

JUVENTUS

  • Champions Juventus perhaps had one eye on their Champions League contest that lies in wait after this clash after they were defeated by Cagliari in midweek.
  • Juve opted to rotate but they will be disappointed that they failed to even score against Cagliari with their team capable of earning the victory despite the changes.
  • There are likely to be further changes for this game with Miralem Pjanic definitely sidelined because of suspension while Paulo Dybala is unlikely to be risked.

ROMA

  • Roma continued their strong run of form as they made it seven games unbeaten with six wins during that period thanks to a 2-3 success at Torino during the week.
  • Roma fell behind early on but Edin Dzeko and Chris Smalling put them in front before Amadou Diawara’s spot kick gave them a comfortable lead, although they were made to work hard in the final 25 minutes after Torino halved the deficit.
  • Roma will want to wrap their campaign up on a high and will be confident of doing so arriving in the form they are in but they will be without the suspended Gianluca Mancini.

THE PREDICTION

Juventus lost their first game since claiming the Serie A title as they were beaten by Cagliari and with one eye on their Champions League clash, it would not be a surprise to see them lose again here. They host Roma who arrive in good form after avoiding defeat in their last seven matches and their ability in front of goal could cause Juve problems. Roma are likely to go all out for the win here and they should be able to earn at least a draw, even if the hosts score.
