Roma vs. Juventus Predictions and Preview
Roma have won only 10 of their last 20 leagues matches but have won four in a row as they look to close in on a Champions League spot.
Eusebio Di Francesco’s side have a put a four-point gap between themselves and fifth-placed Inter as they look to seal a top four finish, with just two matches of the season remaining.
However, Roma have recently been eliminated from the Champions League after a 7-6 semi-final aggregate loss to Liverpool and may suffer from both physical and psychological fatigue.
Last weekend’s results – Juve’s comeback win over Bologna and Napoli’s draw with Torino – put the Bianconeri back on course for a seventh league title.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side have re-established their six-point lead over Napoli at the top of the standings and with just two games to go, are on course for the league title once more barring a dramatic turn of events.
The hosts are very slight favourites to win this game at odds of 9/4, with an away win available at 12/5 and the draw priced at 9/4.
Under 2.5 goals is available at 11/14 while fewer than 1.5 goals is priced at 40/17.
A ‘double chance’ on the visitors to battle their way to either a point or a win is available at 8/13.
If you fancy the hosts to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 10/3.
One to watch for Roma: Edin Dzeko is Roma’s top scorer this campaign with 24 goals in all competitions including 10 in his last 16.
One to watch for Juventus: Gonzalo Higuain ended a run of 10 games without a goal to net the winner against Inter two weeks ago, to bring the Argentine up to 23 goals for the campaign.
Long shot: Roma have only let in two goals in their most recent five league games, while Juve have recently been held to draws by lowly SPAL and Crotone. A scoreless draw is available at odds of 15/2.
