Their defensive woes have been reiterated because in the matches played in the 2021 Italian Serie A season, 2.5 goals have been scored. On the other hand, Roma has been much more proficient in front of goals, averaging about 2.90 goals per match. Thus, this encounter promises to be a high scoring affair.
Juventus Vs Roma: Team News, Probable XI
In Juventus’ favour, the one thing is that they have won three of their last five games against Roma in all competitions. Juventus is in good form with five wins out of their previous six matches, while Roma has lost two of their last three Italian Serie A games.
Juventus XI: Wojciech Szczesny, Juan Cuadrado, Leonardo Bonucci, Matthijs de Ligt, Alex Sandro, Weston McKennie, Adrien Rabiot, Aaron Ramsey, Federico Chiesa, Alvaro Morata, Cristiano Ronaldo
Roma XI: Pau Lopez; Gianluca Mancini, Roger Ibanez, Davide Santon; Rick Karsdorp, Gianluca Villar, Jordan Veretout, Leonardo Spinazzola; Lorenzo Pellegrini, Henrikh Mkhitaryan; Borja Mayoral
Juventus will be relying on Paulo Dybala and Federico Chiesa to score some goals for them. In the Italian Serie A season 2021/22, Paulo Dybala has played five matches in which he’s scored two goals and created two assists.
For Roma, ex-Chelsea player Tammy Abraham has been a revolution as he’s scored two goals in the seven matches he’s played in the colours of Roma. Additionally, he averages 19 passes per match with a pass completion rate of 76% and has two assists and will thus be critical for Roma going forward.
Juventus has made a faltering start to the 2021/22 Serie A campaign, but the team has shown improvement in their recent matches. Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma have made an impressive start to the season, and a win in Turin could make them move into the top 3. Your guess is as good as ours as to who’s going to win this encounter.
