Juventus vs Chievo
Italy – Serie A
Date: Monday, 21st January 2019
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: Allianz Stadium (Turin).
An absolute dream of a match for a punter. The best team in the country, at their home, take on the worst team in the entire competition, with the newly-added services of the man, the myth and legend; Cristiano Ronaldo. Need I say more?
The Old Lady has been the best team in Italy by quite a distance. Many pundits even regard them as the favorites for the Champions League this season. They just added another silverware to their ever increasing trophy collection, after beating AC Milan in the Supercoppa Italiana. No point for guessing who scored the winner.
It seems like the universe is plotting for the Yellow and Blues to get relegated to Serie B. On top of their pathetic performance in the league, they had also three points deducted from whatever little they had secured so far, by the federation.
It seems that it’s inevitable that the Flying Donkeys will be flying to the lower division come this summer.

Juventus vs Chievo Prediction
Cristiano’s high-profile transfer from Real Madrid has started to pay its dividends as he was instrumental in delivering the Supercoppa, and has been equally responsible in helping the Hunchback stay unbeaten as one half of the season is over.
Though no one expected him to, the former Ballon d’Or winner raced to the top of Serie A top scorers list and is actively pursuing his eternal rival, Lionel Messi, currently leading the Golden Boot race. In Domenico Di Carlo’s men, the player has a huge opportunity to close out the gap and be in the active mix for the prestigious honor. I expect him to get at the end of at least one goal.
By a distance, La Madama has been the best defensive team in the league as well. No other group has conceded fewer goals overall, or at home. Also, five of their last six home-ties resulted in wins with clean sheets.
Back them to repeat the process one more time, with a free mind.
