Juventus v Verona Predictions and Preview

Juventus continue their chase for a top four spot this weekend, when the Turin giants will be looking to get revenge against Hellas Verona, who travel to Turin. Max Allegri’s men were beaten 2-1 at Stadio Bentegodi back in October in what was a huge blow to Juventus ambitions.

However, momentum is in Juve’s favour now, as the Bianconeri are unbeaten in nine consecutive Serie A games and are currently just one point behind fourth-placed Atalanta. Allegri’s side has done well at home recently, as Juve won three of their last four games in Turin, while they were held to a 0-0 against AC Milan at San Siro last time.

Verona, meanwhile, suffered a dip in form in December, but Gialloblu bounced back in January and won three of their last four games, only suffering a surprising 2-1 loss at home against Salernitana.

Unlike Juventus, who had a very busy transfer window and managed to buy Vlahovic and Denis Zakaria as well as offloading some dead wood, Verona had a relatively quiet mercato that saw them bring in only Greek centre-back Panagiotis Retsos as well Fabio Depaoli on loan from Salernitana.

Juventus vs. Verona full time result odds

Juventus will have to do without Federico Chiesa, who underwent a knee surgery after rupturing his cruciate ligament in January. Alex Sandro and Mattia Perin tested positive for Covid, so they’ll both miss the clash, while Manuel Locatelli is suspended after picking up a yellow card against AC Milan last time, so new signing Denis Zakaria might get his debut in midfield.

Pawel Dawidowicz will miss the rest of the season, while Juventus loanee Gianluca Frabotta is with Covid, but undobutedly the biggest blow for Verona is the absence of Giovanni Simeone, who is suspended.

Juventus strengthened significantly in January and have been in fine form, while the absence of Verona’s star-striker handicaps the visitors significantly ahead of this clash. The Bianconeri won three of their last four games in Turin, so we are going with a Juventus victory at 11/20 as our prediction.

Juventus vs. Verona both teams to score odds

Both teams have scored in each of the last eight meetings in this rivalry, while BTTS paid off in each of Verona’s last five games in Serie A. Dusan Vlahovic’s presence should give Juventus a huge boast in attack, while the visitors are always dangerous going forward, so go with BTTS at 4/5. Placing a bet for Over 2.5 goals also seems like a good idea at 21/20 and you can even combine both options for even bigger odds.

Juventus vs. Verona correct score odds

Four of the last six games between those teams, including the last one, ended in 2-1 victories for the home side. Verona are a good side, but the absence Giovanni Simeone is a huge blow, while the Bianconeri will be confident after a strong January transfer window. Therefore, we are going for a 2-1 victory for the Turin giants in our Juventus vs. Verona tips at 15/2

Juventus vs. Verona first goalscorer odds

Dusan Vlahovic is currently leading Serie A’s top scorer chart with 17 strikes and the Serbian will be eager to impress on his debut in a Juventus jersey. The 22-year-old is expected to fit into Massimiliano Allegri’s starting XI right away and at 3/1 he is the main favourite to break the deadlock against Verona.
