The Italian giants Juventus will face their counter attackers Roma at home in Turin.
The Yellow and Reds (Roma) will be hungry for a win as they have not won at Turin since last 9 years. It will be a difficult task for Di Francesco’s side to beat the unbeaten Italian champions for the last 7 years.
Juventus has scored 33 goals in their last 16 Serie A matches, out of which 11 have come from the leg of the Portugal Star Cristiano Ronaldo followed by former-Croatian striker Mario Mandzukic netting 7 goals.
No other player has scored more than 2 goals for the club this year.
Roma who is placed seventh on the table has not been able to win as many matches this season winning their only opening game in their first five matches. Roma is 22 points behind table-toppers Juventus with 46 points,Juve has only been drawn by Genoa with the scoreline of 1-1.
Roma had finished 3rd place last season, they are gloomed after the departure of key players which includes goalkeeper Alisson Becker, and midfielders Radja Nainggolan and Kevin Strootman.
The experienced duo of Roma, Edin Dzeko and Daniele De Rossi are back from injuries as they were seen training with the rest of the team and are expected to show up on Saturday against Juventus.
De Rossi Roma’s Captain said:-
“We are in a tough spell, we know that all of us, not just the coach, are under scrutiny.”
“Then the pressure of facing Juventus is only something on top of that”
“So we all really want to put in a great performance in Turin, more for us than because it is a big, important game”.
Massimiliano Allegri’s frontline looks too strong with the likes of Ronaldo, Mandzukic and Dybala and all three have been in a great form this season so Juventus is expected to open the goal.
Roma’s last 5 fixtures in Serie A is WLDDW, Lorenzo Pellegrini and Stephan El Shaarawy are struggling with fitness. De Rossi is going to be the key for AS Roma. Juventus would like to continue their dominance of winning, they are favourites to win Saturday’s game. A draw is also a possibility looking at the two clubs strength.
The match will be played at Turin(Italy) on December 23 at 1:00 AM (IST).
