Prediction and odds for the game: Roma (9/4) vs Juventus (23/20)
We are backing the away win
When: Sunday 9 January 2022, Kick-off 17:30
Where: The Stadio Olimpico
On Sunday night, Roma and Juventus go head-to-head at the Stadio Olimpico, in a potentially massive game in the fight for the Champions League spots in Serie A.
The Giallorossi’s mixed fortunes continued last time out, as Jose Mourinho’s team were defeated 3-1 at a severely weakened Milan. The defeat leaves the team from the eternal city three points behind their fifth-place opponents and six adrift of fourth-place Atalanta.
The defeat means that the home team has now won just two of their previous six matches in the Italian top-flight.
Their usually solid home form has also been inconsistent of late, as Roma have also won just two of their previous six league matches at the Stadio Olimpico. Their recent home games in Serie A have been relatively low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in six of their last eight matches.
One player who has shone this season for the Giallorossi is English striker Tammy Abraham, who has scored seven goals in the Italian top-flight, which includes scoring three times in his last three league appearances.
The Bianconeri are now within touching distance of the Champions League spots after a return to form in recent months in Serie A. Max Allegri’s team are now just three points behind Atalanta, who occupy the final Champions League qualification spots in Serie A.
A 1-1 draw with Napoli in their last outing means that the Old Lady are now unbeaten in seven games in all competitions, six of which have been in Serie A.
The visitors recent league games have been low-scoring, with their last six games in Serie A producing under 2.5 goals. One of the main reasons for their recent low-scoring encounters is that Juventus have kept clean sheets in four of their last six matches in the Italian top-flight. Only league leaders Inter and Napoli have conceded fewer goals than Juventus in Serie A this season.
Juventus have a decent recent record on their travels, as they have won five of their last eight away games in Serie A. They are also currently unbeaten in four away games in the Italian top-flight. Their good defensive displays have proven crucial to those recent away results, as the Bianconeri has conceded just one goal in their last three away matches in Serie A.
Roma have been unpredictable of late in Serie A, while Juventus seem to be on a solid run of form. We are backing the visitors to record a victory, as the visitors now seem to be moving in the right direction. The other bet we are backing is Federico Chiesa to be an anytime goalscorer, as the Italian international scored last time out and looked like the Bianconeri’s most dangerous attacking player.
Our Tips: We are backing Juventus to record a win at odds of 23/20 and/or Federico Chiesa to be an anytime goalscorer at odds of 15/8. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
