Juventus vs Brescia: Prediction
Juve are a wounded animal and I fully expect them to record their eighteenth win of the season. The hosts are bound to score three or more here, and I will take the Home Win & Over 2.5 goals.
Without Cristiano Ronaldo and Douglas Costa, Juventus are projected to switch to 4-3-1-2 formation with Aaron Ramsey behind Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain up-front. I really fancy Dybala to end his goal-drought here.
