Desperate to end their season on a high after what has been a sluggish end to this year’s campaign, newly-crowned champions Juventus will welcome Roma to an empty Allianz on Saturday night.
While the Old Lady might have managed to lift their ninth consecutive Serie A title this summer, they were hit with another worrying 2-0 defeat away at a struggling Cagliari in midweek and Juventus have managed to collect just a pair of wins over their last seven appearances.
On the flip side, putting in another free-scoring display earlier in the week and picking up a 3-2 win away at Torino, Roma have continued to shine since returning from the interruption and have marched towards another European finish.
However, while Saturday’s guests might have managed to collect 19 points on their seven-match unbeaten run, they do hold what is a worrying record against the Italian giants.
Including a 3-1 defeat when they faced off on Coppa Italia duties back in January, Juventus have collected back-to-back wins against Roma and have lost just a sole matchup against I Giallorossi since 2017.

Juventus crawl over the finish line
Although Juventus might have picked up yet another Serie A crown this summer, they have been far from convincing throughout the 2019/2020 campaign and have had a string of help from teams around them slipping up.
Showing their continued issues and putting in another woeful display in midweek, Maurizio Sarri’s side were hit with a shock 2-0 defeat away at Cagliari and the pressure is really on the former Chelsea boss.
With many around Turin feeling that a change of manager in the dugout is needed this summer, Saturday’s hosts have continued to show a string of glaring issues at the back.
Shipping a pair of strikes against a Cagliari side that had previously been on an eight-match winless run, Juventus have managed to record just a single Serie A clean sheet in their last nine appearances.
Even more worrying for fans around the Allianz, they have conceded over 1.5 goals in five of their last seven outings, a run that saw them ship seven goals in back-to-back matchups against AC Milan and a dramatic 3-3 draw against Sassuolo.

Who can stop Roma?
Putting on another free-scoring clinic away at Torino in midweek and picking up a 3-2 win, Roma have managed to secure another top-six finish with time to spare and have gained a string of plaudits since returning from the enforced break.
Still firing in this year’s Europa League, I Giallorossi find themselves in the midst of a three-match winning run and have remarkably collected 19 points over their previous seven top-flight appearances.
With their recent purple patch highlighted by a 6-1 romp away at SPAL earlier in the month, Head Coach Paulo Fonseca has been vocal about his side’s stunning performances in the final third.
Along with bagging a trio of strikes on their travels at Torino in midweek, Roma have managed to bag at least a pair of strikes in six of their last seven matchups, including another brace at the San Siro earlier in the month.
Enjoying their brightest spell of the season and smelling what is a golden opportunity to end this year’s campaign with another statement on the road, you might be interested to know that Roma can be found priced at 13/10 with Coral to leave with maximum points on Saturday night.
