Date: on the 22nd of December, 2018 (Saturday)
Match start: 20:30 (GMT+1)
Tournament: Italy. Serie A.
All matches of the 17th round of Italian Serie A will be held on Saturday; many of them will be played simultaneously but the only match has been given by the local Football Federation the prime-time.
The match Juventus vs Roma is always “hot” despite the places which are taken by the teams.
Of course, Bianconeri are now the leaders and are not even thinking and Roma as the possible rival for Scudetto and Giallorossi have the worst possible season for the last years (the 7th line as for now) and don’t reach the Europa League zone, the match still will be rich for goal chances.
The main problem of the capital club is the weak game in defense. it is enough to look at its last 2-3 matches (3:2 victory over Genoa and two draws 2:2 with Cagliari and Inter) in order to understand that the football players of Eusebio Di Francesco won’t be able to keep their gate safe.
Juventus, if to compare with its rival is famous for its good defense. The club misses in average 0.5 goal for one match (4 shots at home and in away matches).
Roma can score a lot of goals but it is one thing to score Sampdoria, Cagliari and even Inter and absolutely another thing to overcome the resistance of the country’s champion.
If Juventus is in a proper winning mood (and we doubt that it isn’t not) it will ruin Roma.
And we are almost absolutely sure that the victory will be gained with the score 1:0, 2:0, 2:1.
They are used to prove their advantage with such modest difference. Don’t blame them as the victory is the most important thing here.
Out tip: Juventus to win and total under (4.5 goals) – odds 1.7
