Juventus vs Bologna
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 8th January 2017
Kick-Off: 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Juventus Stadium (Turin).
It seems like Juventus will be running away with the Serie A title once again. They have a game in hand and are at a 4 point difference from the second placed Roma. The Old Lady had won in 14 of their 17 games so far, with defeats happening on 3 occasions. They are unbeaten at home by winning in 9 of their 9 matches so far. They are also the best defense in the league after conceding 14 goals.
Bologna are 10 points outside the relegation zone and sit at 15th position in the league table. They made a good start to the season by winning in 3 of their first 5 matches. Since then it has been disastrous, as they managed just 2 wins from the remaining 12. They went into the Christmas break with a 3-0 win over relegation candidates Pescara, their first away win this season from 8 matches.
