Match start: 19:45 (GMT+1)
Roma takes the 3rd position and after derby (0:0, 4 rounds had passed) didn’t lose any points. The fight to the last against Liverpool in the Champions League semi-final has contributed to increased number of the fans.
Nevertheless, return semi-final (4:2) hasn’t added any forces to Di Francesco’s team. The fast goal of Cengiz Ünder during the meeting against Cagliari (1:0), which is fighting for survival, has saved Roma from unexpected outcome. That goal was the only one that was scored by the guests.
Roma is much more successful at home field and this is proved not only by the victories at the Eurocup arena but also the victory over Torino (3:0), Chievo (4:1) and Genoa (2:1). However, recently the team has experienced home defeats from Milan and Fiorentina with the same score 0:2.
Football players from Turin are in one step from the champion’s title and if they don’t manage to score the points at Olimpico, then they for certain will take them during the home battle against Verona in the last round.
Defeat from Napoli (0:1) on the last minutes didn’t become critical for the Allegri’s team. Then were gained the victories over Inter (3:2), Bologna (3:1) and Milan (4:0) in the Cup final.
Thinking about the battle that was held at San Siro, we should note a tactical mistake of Spalletti who has removed Icardi in a man-down situation. But even this doesn’t take anything away from Juventus which has used practically all available chance near the rival’s gates.
The final match of the Coppa Italia became an illustration of ability of Bianconeri to organize attacks. Medhi Benatia’s double and Kalinić‘s own goal seemed to be not absolutely logical if we remember the fact that Juventus has kicked 10 shots – it is quite normal for 4-5 meetings with its participation.
In the first circle the football players of Turin have overcome the rival at home (1:0) but have lost last season at Olimpico with the score (1:3).
Roma to win 2.75
Juventus to win 2.92
We believe that the Bianconeri will finish this season beautifully and won’t delay solution of the question of getting the champion’s title. Judging by the last games, Allegri’s team is in an excellent form. Roma is obviously in decline, first of all moral, especially after leaving the Champions League. So in this game their chances for success are small.
