Juventus vs Roma Prediction

Juventus comfortaby cruised to the Quarters with a 4-0 humbling of Udinese at this same venue. Maurizio Sarri was so confident of the win, that he did not bother to put Cristiano Ronaldo even on the bench.

Meanwhile, Roma recorded a win on the road over Parma, with a 0-2 scoreline. Both goals had come in the second half for the guests.

In regards to result this match-day, Juve take the cake. They are easily the best team in Italy, and have been consistently so, for the past decade. 

They are also considered to be one of the best teams in the world, and are regular contenders for glory in the Champions League.On top of that the team has the home advantage as well this game week. 

In addition, at this half-way point of the season, Juve are at the top of the league table, and hold a lead of four points over the second-placed Inter Milan.

Juve are also on a four-match winning run, and had also won seven of the former eight games. They also were invincible in 27 of their previous 29 match-ups, and in 15 of their prior 16 in front of the home crowd. And incredibly, of these 16, 14 were wins.

On the other hand, Roma lost two of their prior four match-ups, and were winless in four of their last eight. Importantly, they had lost just the last week against this opponent, and then the Romans had the home advantage. Keep note that they are at on the road this time around.

Also, Juve recorded 12 of the previous 17 h2h wins, and are on a nine-game winning streak at home, where they kept clean sheets in the latest four.

Considering these findings, it’s deduced that the in-form Juventus, who have the services of the wounded Cristiano Ronaldo, who’s in pursuit for his sixth Ballon d’Or, should record a win this match-day at the Allianz Stadium.

Moreover, taking into account Juve’s insatiable thirst for titles, their stupendous defense, Roma’s flops at the Allianz Stadium, the upper hand of the hosts, and the fact that is a knockout – it’s concluded that Juve should do their best on the pitch to not concede in the first phase of the game, which could affect their chances of progressing to the semis.
